“It’s the biggest, most spectacular musical to come to Toronto, ever.”

On August 8, 1995, the Canadian production of the hit Broadway musical Beauty and the Beast opened at the Princess of Wales Theater in Toronto, Canada. It was one of the earliest international productions of the show, following Australia’s version in July of the same year. The original cast included Kerry Butler as Belle, Chuck Wagner as Beast, Dan R. Chameroy as Gaston, Cliff Saunders and Lefou, and Terry Doyle as Maurice. The musical ran until 1998.
