Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast

Synetic Theater
1800 S. Bell Street Arlington

This is no ordinary fairy-tale. Synetic Theater's Beauty and the Beast draws on the darkness and sensuality of Villeneuve's original French novel, La Belle et la BÍte, and the 1946 Cocteau film of the same name. First brought to our stage in 2014, this fresh adaptation is a sparkling and inspiring Gothic romance full of wonder, mystery and redemption expressed through Synetic's unique stage effects, expressionistic design, shadowplay, and movement. Told through the vengeful narration of a handsome Prince's first love, Synetic's dark and mystical take on the fairy tale explores and challenges the dynamics of love and power as it asks the question, "Who is worthy of true love?" No sing-alongs or talking teacups from Disney's beloved animated film in this piece of theater art. Though just as magnificent, this show's got bite.
