Ouch!

WALTHAM

A production of "Disney's Beauty and the Beast" by the Reagle Players of Waltham got a tough review from a Globe critic today.

Correspondent Michael Hardy wrote that three actors in the show were "astonishingly good" and if you closed your eyes you could almost imagine yourself on Broadway.

"The talent curve drops off rather precipitously after these three, although the rest give the performance their all," Hardy wrote.

Still, Hardy wrote, the Players must be doing something right, noting that they are in their 38th consecutive season -- and founder Robert Eagle is responsible for funding the installation of an air conditioning system in Waltham High's Robinson Theater.

"So if you still want to see the show, I have only three words: Be my guest," he wrote.
