“Beauty and the Beast” had quite an opening at The Fox on Tuesday night, A large crowd exceeding 3,400 people crammed the theater and waited in a line extending over a block long for the doors to open before the show. There were a lot of mom’s with little girls in their best Belle finery. How can you not like a show that gets that much love at Christmas time?

This musical has played The Fox and The Muny before, so we have seen it here a lot. There have been bigger productions with better overall casting, but the young (mostly) and enthusiastic touring cast that populates this company manage to connect with their family audience target and send everyone home happy, and in the case of the small ones, a little sleepy.

To accommodate the kids, the evening shows start at 7:30 instead of the usual 8 PM. Check the Fox website to verify the starting time for your particular performance. A 7:30 PM show lets out a little before 10 PM.

The production has nice sets, a 10 piece orchestra, very colorful costumes and the choreography is cute. And in the eyes of your children, it will mostly likely be a real highlight of their holiday season.

“Beauty and the Beast” will play The Fox through December 24th.

    larry-i think you are just being overly ncaiyupe. he flew next to jets. you can see the picture.all your nonsense about jet speed and range etc is just a silly straw’s not like anyone claimed this was a new way to commute.clearly he DID fly next to jets. you can see the pictures. the wing will do 300 kph (180mph) in a shallow dive, way over most jets stall are making all kinds of bizarre tinfoil hat claims that he didn’t, when he very clearly did.look at the wings on those jets. they are straight, not swept. such wings allow for slower flight without stall. hell, you can do the same in an f-14 and that’s a really heavy plane. ever watch the blue angels? they can fly VERY seem to be making up a whole pile of claims that no one made and then objecting to them.seems like you are just chasing your tail for no reason i can figure out.FWIW, a warthog has a stall speed of 120. it’s also incredibly heavy because it is armored and carries a huge amount of weaponry.take out the cannot and the hardened carry points and make the engines smaller and lighter as a result, and stall speed would drop under 100, easily within reach of this seems like you just want to get your knickers in a twist for some reason.what was misleading?what inaccurate claims were made anywhere but in your mind?
