For the live performance critique, I
decided to attend Disneys’ Beauty and the Beast at “the Media Theater
Performing of the Arts”. The Media Theater venue of the was  beautiful, I have never seen anything like it
before. The way the theater was designed, was magical as if you were
experiencing the real Disney moment.

 

The
“pre-show” of the play was well organized. The staff member treated people very
well with a warm welcome in the venue of the box office. At the entrance door,
they welcome you with postcard of the Disney’s Beauty and the Beast performing
show. There were quite a number of people in line buying the ticket at the box
office booth. It’s was convenient for me to get in very easy because I didn’t
have to wait in line for several minutes because I had already pay for my
ticket in advance. Once at the front of the show right before you enter, there
are other shows advertised so that people can see what is being shown on the
next theater schedule. In front of the ticket booth the staff members was
asking people about if it was a first time for them attending the show. If not,
there were telling them about the overall history of their theater as well as
how many shows they present to the audience per week. I was so in love of the
theater especially the way they welcome you and make you comfortable before the
show begins. Once inside the Venue, you can see the nice set up of the scene
well organized with beautiful light and designed. Everything was set to almost as  you were at Diseney’s land.

The
show was well depicted as well each character played a specific role in the
play. The play ultimately center around a character called Belle, a beautiful girl who is symbolized by “Beauty”, and the Beast, who
is really a prince stuck under the curse of a magician. The Beast in the cast
need to  learn how to love and be loved
so that the spell will end.

Overall, I would say I have very
much enjoyed the cast of the whole show of Beauty and the Beast that I attended
last week at The Media Theater for the Performing Art. Beauty and the Beast is
a great Disney movie and I remember I used to watch it over and over again. But
I had never seen the real play at the performing theater. I must say that it is
definitely a different scene. I was very happy with the way the characters performed
the play. When I was watching the show, automatically I tough of a fairytale. The
performer of the show made the Beauty and the Beast role a special show and
they all work tirelessly together to make the show more excitement and enjoyable.
I loved the way they brought excitement on the scene and everyone in the
audience have loved it. Over all I had a nice experience watching the show. The
part I enjoyed the most was the fact how joyful the character was on the scene.
Everyone was so excited and they did a very good job presenting to the
audience.

 

When it comes to the characters, I
think everyone played their part well. You could see and feel the excitement
and enjoyment of presenting this show to the audience. Alanna J. Smith who
played Belle is a young strong, smart, and independent woman. Her
character really showed the true beauty of the Beauty and the Beast. Garret Jay Yoder who portray
the Beast did not really show the strong and affectionate love toward Alanna in
the play. He was not convincing showing the true love toward Alanna. I think he
played a little more barbaric than showing he affection and true lover toward
Alanna. But he interacts well with the beauty. Bob Stineman who represents
Gaston in the play is absolutely the complete opposite of the Beast. He is
self-centered and not very happy. I think he does not attract more attention in
the play because of his anger. The area I did not like about the play was when the
Beast costume horn got stock into Belle hair while performing. I just think that
part of the play was a little careless act of the beast even though he was
showing the Beast side of himself could have avoid such incident.

 I have seen other play but I have never felt
such a sense of happiness like I did with Beauty and the Beast at The Media
Theater of Performing Art.

 It was quite impressing to see the atmosphere
in the auditorium, it was magnificent. The producer did a great job introducing
the young character in the production.The younger ages in the play have an
enhanced fairytale feeling. I did not know that the show was going to be casts
by 11 young  men and women. I didn’t
expect it to be well played and thought it would have an fundamental feeling to
it, but I was very wrong and felt as if the ages chosen for this Disney
production was an excellent decision. I believe it would be hard to portray the
innocence needed for many of the characters of Beauty and the Beast if you
chose anyone other than children or young teens. I think that is what exited me
the most to see the play. My son is also a big fan of Disney’s movies as well.
In fact, my husband and I took him to Disney where we all enjoy our time there.
Beauty and the Beast remind me of the magical movie Disney’s itself play at the
Magical Kingdom in Disney Land. I love the way it takes you to a different
world and you suddenly forget all that’s going on in your life. It was a good feeling
during the show and it felt like on a fairytale world with the excellent vocal,
well sustains, fun and original creative costumes. The costumes in the Beauty
and The Beast was more fictional and well designed by the producer during the
show and there was a distinction to which you could not be confused to which
character is playing which role. Each cast member was right on target as they
transformed into the character they were portraying, all the way to the
different articulations, which was surprising to me as it seems it would be very
difficult. Overall I am happy that I decided to watch Beauty and The Beast
production, it was well beyond my expectations and very enjoyable. I would
attend this play again and again. I look forward to attending another production
cast. I have attended many other shows, but I think this
particular play was definitely a perfect holiday treat for the audience.
