Disney Live Three Classic Fairy Tales Marcus’ and My Review

Marcus is, of course, a huge fan of Disney and especially their theatre productions: Beauty & the Beast, The Lion King and Newsies. We did not have the opportunity to see The Little Mermaid live on Broadway, or Tarzan. (Although they are both also of great interest to Marcus and we enjoy the soundtracks and rare youtube videos.) Each of these are HUGE Dollar Productions focused on savvy Broadway audiences and they all have had, let's just say, seriously pricey tickets to match. However, this show gave us a chance to enjoy the stories, the songs, and the fun of Disney close to home and without breaking the bank. In fact, at first glance at the ticket prices, my knee-jerk reply was to worry about what the show quality would bring. Then I quickly reminded myself that Disney takes very good care of its brand, and they did not disappoint.
