As you are probably aware, there is a Broadway Beauty and the Beast musical which currently travels the country.
(What you may not be aware of is that Hugh Jackman once played Gaston in the Australian cast.)
But that is neither here nor there.
Actually, I wanted to highlight two songs from the musical which aren't in either of the Disney movies, but still deserve attention. :)
Is this home? Is this what I must learn to believe in? Try to find something good in this tragic place?
Belle sings this one. It has a nice melody, and fleshes out a little more what was arguably skimmed over in the cartoon: her internal processes after deciding to stay with the Beast. Essentially she acknowledges the undesirable circumstances, but resolves to make the best of them. But much more eloquently. ;)
If I Can't Love Her
No beauty could move me, no goodness improve me, no power on earth, if I can't love her.
A song from the Beast! We didn't get this in the cartoon, but we should have. It develops his enigmatic character, especially at a pivotal part of his arc. And it harks back to the prologue song, which is beautiful.
Honorable Mention: Me(sung by Gaston)
