beloved stage adaptation of the classic fairytale and getting his team back

team back together to work on this new production of Beauty and the Beast.
As a director, it is rare to have the opportunity to revisit your work fifteen
years later. [My team and I] have remained very close over the years of
producing the show around the world, and it has been so much fun getting
together to re-explore and re-invent the show.”
