Broadway Musicals, Hollywood Actors to Hit Istanbul Stage

Famed musicals from Broadway and Hollywood will appear in Istanbul during the new season at Zorlu Center PSM. Among these productions are “Beauty and the Beast” and “The Phantom of the Opera.”

Between Oct. 8 and 26, Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” musical will be performed in Turkey for the first time, as part of the musical’s 20th-year special tour. Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature film, “Beauty and the Beast” is the classic story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, who meets the Beast, a young prince trapped in the spell of an enchantress.

More than 1,000 tickets for the musical were sold in just one day, according to Zorlu Center PSM Director Ray Cullom, who spoke at a press conference last week.

“I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” a musical performed for 12 years and adapted in a number of countries, will also open in Istanbul on Oct. 24. The play centers around a relationship that has existed ever since the dawn of time and remains unchanged at its core regardless of time, place or circumstance.
