Remember that this is a kid who habitually covers his ears and buries his face in the couch whenever a Barbie commercial comes on the TV (if he can’t find the remote first). The presence of anyone who can be described as a princess constitutes a nearly unbearable trial.
The show itself was okay, I guess, but I think I sympathized a bit more with Aren in this case. It included lots of dancing and lip syncing, though Belle, Gaston and the Beast seemed to be actually singing. Most importantly, major production numbers (like “Be Our Guest”) were performed in all their glory, complete with a rockette-style kick line made up entirely of table settings and feather dusters.
(I think there were some lip-syncing pork chops in there, too, but as big a fan as I am of having pork products serenade me, I must say that the highlight of the show for me was discovering that one of the ushers at the front of the amphitheater was really into the show. She knew the entire script by heart and recited – no, acted – every line, complete with tears springing to her eyes when Beast was nearly killed at the end of the show. I wouldn’t say I was laughing at her… just in her direction.)
At the end of the show, Aren was visibly relieved. When Miss Brenda asked him how he liked it, he let out a long, exasperated, Napoleon Dynamite-esque sigh.
“Miss Brenda, that was the most BORING thing I’ve ever seen!!!” Maybe if he saw a different kind of princess – say, one wearing Danishes on her head and a light saber at her hip? I’ll get with the folks at Disney and see what we can do…
