La Belle, Lost in the World of the Automaton
Imago Theatre presents La Belle, Lost in the World of the Automaton
A giant artwork of a play with 100 moving parts that will engage you like no other show… Animated effects every 30 seconds… Steampunk finesse… Whimsical, dramatic and heartfelt… This is the new Imago and they are at their best!
ABOUT THE SHOW: A grimy engine room of a 1920 steamship becomes an enchanted theatrical playground where Beauty and the Beast comes to life with puppetry, shadow theatre, a multitude of effects, song, drama and comedy. It will dazzle your eyes, enchant your heart and intrigue your imagination. Sam Stoker and Lady Rose take you on a sea voyage while also traveling back to 1740 to retell the classic Beauty and the Beast. A spectacle like no other. A story-within-a-story-within-a-ship.
