    Beauty and the Beast - The Broadway Musical "Fork Girl" Costume Design Original Art (Walt Disney, 1994). After the tremendous success of the 1991 animated feature film, Disney decided to bring this film to Broadway. They hired Ann Hould-Ward to work on the costume design for this production. She visited the animators who worked on the animated film, then went to work on her designs. An exhibit and sale of her work was held in New York City in 1994 with a portion of the proceeds going to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids charity in memory of Howard Ashman. This is a rare piece of original artwork that went into the making of this musical, which ran on Broadway from 1994-2007, and is the tenth-longest running musical in Broadway history. It has grossed $1.4 billion, and has been seen in 13 countries in over 115 cities. This is the "Fork Girl," who can be seen in the elaborate "Be Our Guest" number, an original costume design concept drawing by Ann Hould-Ward. Drawn with graphite on vellum, hand-signed and dated '93, with a nice large image size of 16". Matted with an opening size of 11" x 18", and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 16" x 23". The Disney COA is on back of frame. Only 13 pieces of original costume design artwork were available for sale at this opening. Most pieces were display only and not for sale. Fine condition.
