Beauty and the Beast: Tale as old as time.

Beauty and the BeastIt’s not a tale as old as time, but it’s definitely been told many times: The 1994 musical Beauty and the Beast, based on the extraordinary 1991 Disney animated film, ran for 5,464 performances by the time it closed on Broadway in 2007, becoming the Great White Way’s eighth-longest running production in history. Now, the musical, with music by Alan Menken, lyrics by the late Howard Ashman and Tim Rice and a book by Linda Woolverton, stops in D.C. as part of yet another national tour. To June 24. National Theatre, 1321 Pennsylvania Ave. NW. Tickets are $39 to $116.50. Call 202-628-6161 or visit nationaltheatre.org.
