Instead, he and his crew encounter a legendary 60 ft. gorilla, vicious dinosaurs and an unfriendly native tribe. With him is a beautiful starlet hoping to become world famous! When both Beauty and the Beast do open on the stage to a packed Radio City Music Hall, well, all Hell breaks loose and...Even if you know the story by heart, you've never experienced it like this.
