With the evening performance scheduled for March 1 at the Lunt-Fontanne, Disney's Beauty and the Beast will play its 2,378th performance, thus making it the 14th longest-running show on Broadway. Beauty will bump the current 14th longest-running show, Annie to 15th place, but fans of both shows have reason to celebrate, of course, since Beauty star Andrea McArdle (Belle) starred in the original Annie.
Now running at the recently refurbished Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, Beauty opened in 1994 at the Palace Theatre and played 2,250 performances there, making it the longest-running show in that theatre's history.
Tickets for Disney's Beauty and the Beast range from $25 - $80. The Lunt-Fontanne Theatre is located at 205 West 46th Street. For information and tickets call Ticketmaster at (212) 307-4747.
