Be Our Guest

This is the big musical number in the show. And by big, I mean extravagant. And by extravagant, I mean it's a miracle nobody got hurt. Just about everybody gets some featured dance time in this one.

Upon meeting Belle, Lumière greets her by kissing her hand, then moving gradually up her arm until Cogsworth puts a stop to it. I never saw her reaction (or Mrs. Potts'), so this photo amused me.

Lumière insists that Belle get a proper dinner.

And what is dinner without a little music?

No one's gloomy or complaining while the flatware's entertaining!

Try the grey stuff — it's delicious!



Belle and the Wardrobe are delighted...

by the cups.

The egg-timer and Lumière

Across the stage with the Wardrobe (while Mrs. Potts sings)

Lumière's lament

Those good old days are gone

Ten years we've been rusting,

Needing so much more than dusting

Babette cuts off Lumière's flirtatious crooning

and takes him for a tango.

And now, for your continued dining pleasure...Napkins, s'il vous plait!

The grand finale begins

While the candlelight's still glowing

Let us help you, we'll keeping going.

Course by course...
