Mr. Burns recently returned to Red House Arts Center to direct this magical musical based on the Academy Award-winning feature. Disney’s classic, Beauty and the Beast was inventively brought to life on the Redhouse stage in partnership with Hillside Family of Agencies.
“Patrick Burns directs the show with a light touch. Even the rousing production number “Be Our Guest” with a huge group onstage turns out to be less about splash than sincerity.” -Len Fonte, Syracuse.com
“Veteran director Patrick Burns, last seen as the filmmaker in last spring’s Ragtime, must spend all his energy on the Disney accoutrements, the talking-singing household implements and the ensemble of dancing knives and forks. The effort is well-invested. Almost everyone…provides endless fun.” -James MacKillop, Syracuse New Times
