"We are thrilled Disney Theatrical has chosen Curve as the opening venue for the tour of the brand new production of Beauty and the Beast in 2021. We all need some good news right now and this investment in our theatre and city gives us all something truly magical to look forward to." - Curve's Chief Executive Chris Stafford and Artistic Director Nikolai Foster.
