January 17, 2007 – Beauty and the Beast Broadway Show Announces Closing


Beauty and the Beast has meant so much to me, both in remembering the joy of creating the animated film and seeing how audiences have embraced it on Broadway for all of these years.” – Composer Alan Menken

On January 17, 2007, the long-running Disney Broadway musical Beauty and the Beast was announced to be closing come July 29th after 13 years of performances. This closing was to make way for Disney’s next musical venture, The Little Mermaid, which would be premiering at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on November 3rd. After its closing, Beauty and the Beast ended its run with 46 previews and 5,464 performances.
