Our writer, Megan, received complementary tickets in exchange for review. All opinions are her own.
We had an enchanting girls’ night out at the Nassau Coliseum to see Disney Live! Three Classic Fairy Tales.  It was a fantastic show and such an appropriate event for my three-year-old.
disney classics
Disney Live! is performed on stage in three acts, one for each classic story, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, and Beauty and the Beast. The stories are shortened, but the integrity of each one is maintained and the most exciting parts are included.  Special effects allow for all the magic of the movies to come alive, for example, when Cinderella is transformed for the ball and also when the beast’s curse is broken.
Disney cinderella classics
My daughter loved the three stories that were chosen for Disney Live!  Snow White, Cinderella, and Belle are immediately recognizable and their stories translated well to the stage. Well-known songs like Heigh Ho, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo, and Be Our Guest were performed beautifully.
disney Live
The best thing about Disney Live! Three Classic Fairy Tales for the parent of a little one is how the show has been scaled down in size. The stage is on one side of the coliseum oval, and seating only includes a fraction of full capacity. This made for smaller crowds, shorter lines, and less hassle for parents! The format of Disney Live! made for the perfect girls’ night with my three-year-old!
