Inside every beast beats the heart of an actor- or so the Beast would have you believe in “No Lie, I Acted Like a Beast!” This retelling of the classic story “Beauty and the Beast,” told from the Beast’s point of view, paints a picture of a kind-hearted prince who wants nothing more than his turn on the stage. A fun ride that flips what you know of the fairy tale on its ear.
