i went to see a stage version of beauty and the beast last night, and it was super delightful, but it also reminded me of why the pacing in musicals often drives me crazy. everything happens way too fast!!!
like, somehow “something there” was sung right after the beast rescued belle from the wolves, which, let us remember, is ON THE FIRST NIGHT THEY MET
and when belle was singing, “i wonder why i didn’t see it there before,” i was just like, “GIRL, IT’S BECAUSE LIKE THREE HOURS AGO HE WAS LITERALLY IMPRISONING YOU FOR LIFE; NO ONE CAN BLAME YOU FOR NOT SEEING IT THERE DURING THAT PARTICULAR INCIDENT”
