A giant art work of a play with 100 moving parts that will engage you like no other show… Animated effects every 30 seconds… Steampunk finesse… Whimsical, dramatic and heartfelt… This is the new Imago and they are at their best!

“It’s all wow factor!”

Lee Williams, The Oregonian

“A triumph! A beauty of a Beauty…Surprising…Delightful…Rare and Wonderful…you may well want to see it over and over again!”
Marty Hughley, Oregon Arts Watch

“Should be at the top of your holiday to-do list! Creative! Engaging!”
Debbie Tofte, PDX Parent

“Masterpiece..Alluring!.. a complexity that engages adults but just the sort of magic and suspended reality that appeals to little ones. This holiday performance season, make sure La Belle is on your can’t-miss list!
Karel Chan, NW Kids Magazine

“.. a masterpiece …. raised to an infinite degree. A delicious feast for the eyes and ears and nourishing fodder for the soul… a cornucopia of sights and sounds that burrow through the hard shell of adulthood to the child-like wonder of innocence and imagination, too long buried.”
Dennis Sparks – All Things Performing Arts

“Populated with 100 astonishingly detailed automata, puppets and other dazzling non-digital effects… a nonstop eye-popper. After several years in the making, Imago Theatre’s tricky, visionary new take on “Beauty and the Beast” arrived this past weekend. And what a landing. It’s all wow factor. You’d need a jeweler’s loupe to take in all the intricate work, particularly the gear-driven pieces

In a time when spectacular visual stories are forged from lines and lines of code, along comes a wondrous tale carefully carved, tinkered, fitted and welded by consummate Portland creatives.”
Lee Williams, The Oregonian

    I feel like I am in love already and with reading only a few reviews! Honestly how refreshing it is knowing that creative and brilliant, beautiful minds have created something real. In a tech time where humans run on autopilot(looking at a screen hoping and wishing to win these tickets)! Aren’t we all a little mad….?
