CUTIE AND THE BEAST

The Off Broadway Theatre, 272 Main Street, Salt Lake City

That’s right, we’re telling the story of a young, rich prince who becomes cursed with ugliness and beastly manners. No, we’re not doing the Donald Trump story — it’s Cutie and the Beast. A cute young girl gets lost in the woods and takes refuge in an enchanted castle, whose master is a terrible beast. All of the trans-morphed servants labor to get her to fall in love with their master. By doing so, the spell will be broken; but, they must hurry before the last sego-lily petal falls! This new, hilarious musical parody written by Eric Jensen will surely be a “beastly” hit with kids and families.

Performances: 7:30 p.m. Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays through April 22

Tickets: $10-16 at theobt.retailregister.com or call 801-355-4328
