“Beauty and the Beast” may be best-known for its dancing silverware extravaganza “Be Our Guest” scene, but it is the heart-breaking ballad “If I Can’t Love Her” that rests at the core of the story about a prince transformed into a beast as punishment for his cruel ways and warned to change or forever stay a beast.
“If I Can’t Love Her,” which was added when the Disney animated film was made into a 1994 Broadway musical, was composed by Alan Menken with lyrics by Tim Rice.
