“It’s so exciting not only to be making my Broadway debut in this fabulous show, but to also have the honor of being the last person to play Belle on Broadway.”

On April 3, 2007, Disney Channel star Anneliese van der Pol took the stage as Belle in the Broadway production Beauty and the Beast. Van der Pol would be the final Belle in this production, as the Broadway run was scheduled to end on July 29 after almost 5,500 performances. A star of Disney Channel’s Original Series That’s So Raven, van der Pol was also chosen for her numerous theater credits, including California productions of Evita, Oklahoma!, and The Nutcracker. This role was her Broadway debut, and she is the second former Disney star to play the role after Christy Carlson Romano.
