Act 1 Next Beauty and the Beast  

(Wait for audio clip to load.)

  Maurice:  "First prize is nearly mine
It's quite my best invention
So simple, yet complex
So massive yet so small
This triumph of design
Will be my old age pension...
That is, providing I can find the fair at all
I must have missed a sign
I should have paid attention...
That's not a nightingale
And not a mating call...
