Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage could possibly
be one of my favorite stage shows found throughout Walt Disney World
(although Festival of the Lion King probably takes the top spot).
While the acting, musical numbers, and choreography are amazing, the
attention to detail often goes unnoticed. Today we are going to be
taking a look at one small detail featured in the picture below:
Here you can see Belle and Beast falling in love
inside the castle. One detail that most people don't pay attention
to is at the bottom of the stairs. Here you can see two gargoyles.
If you recall in the film, after the Beast has a cast placed on him
the entire castle gets an unfortunately creepy makeover. The
exterior, along with the interior, of the castle feature these
gargoyles symbolizing the Beast's darker side of life.
Just like the film, Belle and Beast fall in love and
after a daring fight Belle reveals her true love to the Beast.
With the Beast and Belle's love declared to one
another the castle transforms back into its former glory and along
with it the gargoyles disappear and, much like the film, transform
back into angel statues. After the Beast's transformation you will
now notice that the gargoyles are now angels! Just goes to show that
no small detail should ever go unnoticed!
