Variations from the film Characters The three town Bimbettes or Silly Girls as they're called in the musical plead Gaston to choose one of them over Belle on his way to her cottage; he smugly assures them that his marriage to Belle will have no effect on any future rendezvous he will most likely have with them, meaning that he would not be a very faithful husband to Belle and would cheat on her constantly with the other women of the village.
The Bimbettes also have more dialogue and an expanded role than in the film including wailing and crying like infants before Me even beginsincluding actually witnessing and even partaking in the mocking of Maurice's claims Stage beauty the Beast holding Belle prisoner, though they still don't appear during The Mob Song.
In addition, they are implied to not be waitresses in this version due to being dismissed from the tavern alongside everyone else except LeFou in the reprise. In addition, their witnessing and reacting angrily to Belle's initial refusal towards Gaston was cut, presumably in order to avoid any implications that they might have supported Belle going with Gaston, and they are also shown to be gossiping about Belle in the opening song, when in the film, they only comment on Gaston passing by.

This was presumably done to avoid any implications that the villagers were all in the know about Gaston's plan of blackmail and supporting him.
In addition, the reprise itself featured expanded lyrics making more clear that Gaston was fully aware of the dirtiness of his plan and has no remorse whatsoever in carrying it out.
As a result, Gaston and LeFou sing the final lyrics of the reprise instead of the chorus. The magic behind the transformations is slightly modified: Instead of being fully transformed as shown in the moviethe characters are slowly transforming into their respective objects.
Potts, and Babette the Feather Duster lament this fact, revealing that some of the servants have already completely transformed and cannot speak, see, or move; they fear the same will happen to them if the spell is not broken soon, such as Cogsworth gaining a key in his back as the storyline unfolds.
In addition, the original film originally implied that the curse's effects were instantaneous for all involved. As Lumiere and Cogsworth take Belle on a tour right before she sneaks off to explore the West Wingthe Beast makes his way to her room with a plate of food in hopes of making amends with her.
However, he overhears Belle voicing her distaste of him, and throws the plate away in anger and sulks off. A scene only briefly seen in the background in the film is expanded upon, where Belle teaches the Beast to read.
