The Beauty and the Beast

ABOUT THE PLAY

Let’s suppose there exists a magic mirror in which we can see the reflection of a human soul. The mirror would show the Beauty or the Beast depending on the soul of the person that is reflected. This fairy tale, written by Madame de Villeneuve more than 250 years ago, speaks of transformative love that shakes and changes life, both of those who love and those who need to be loved. It’s a fairy tale about the dual nature of humans. All of us, at some point in our lives, become torn apart by contradictions, and then we need love, support, and trust. The fairy tale tells us that each of us is entitled to happiness. But, in order to be happy, one must follow his/her dreams to make a turning point in one’s life, even though at first it might seem as a dangerous, risky and absurd decision. “The Beauty and the Beast” is a fairy tale about the need and desire of every human soul to be happy. The true beauty is within humans; it is contained in the incredible beauty that lies in one’s soul.
