Romano, who is known to television audiences for her work on "Kim Possible" and "Even Stevens," will chat about her role in the long-running Disney musical and perform a number from the show. Romano's appearance is scheduled for 8:50 AM ET on the WB-11 "Morning News."
Christy Carlson Romano made her Broadway debut as Mary Phagan in the Lincoln Center production of Parade. She appeared in the national tours of The Sound of Music and The Will Rogers Follies, and her film credits include "Everyone Says I Love You," "Henry Fool" and "Looking for an Echo." The youngest actress ever to play Belle on Broadway, Romano is perhaps best known for her role as Ren Stevens on the Disney Channel's "Even Stevens" and as the voice of "Kim Possible."
Featuring a score by Alan Menken, Tim Rice and the late Howard Ashman, Beauty and the Beast boasts a book by the author of the original screenplay, Linda Woolverton; the musical was directed by Robert Jess Roth. Beauty opened at the Palace Theatre April 18, 1994, and now plays the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. It is currently the seventh longest-running musical in Broadway history.
