Did Disney Save Broadway

Since Beauty and the Beast debuted on Broadway there has been a lot of debate about what exactly Disney is bringing to the Theatre. Your opinion is your own on the matter, but there can be no doubt that Disney has been successful in bringing new fans to the great white way.

A story in The Awl posits that it’s not Disney’s story telling that’s making the difference here, but rather the hiring of creative talent, giving them a lot of money, and then telling them to go for it.

Keep in mind that one of the properties Disney Theatrical is considering right now is a staged version of Dumbo. Interesting.

Note: Normally I wouldn’t like to an article with fowl language on this blog, but it’s used sparingly and the rest of the article is really very important. So don’t click this link if you want to avoid anything non PG-13.
