Has anyone seen the Little Mermaid Broadway show yet? It only opened less than a week ago, but I’m curious to hear what people think.
I saw it early and free because Tiff built many of the costumes (including the incredibly awesome Ursula tentacle dress).
I haven’t seen any other Disney-on-Broadway shows for comparison, but I thought it was great. They did a great job of making us forget that they’re not really underwater, and the casting was excellent.
It’s different enough from the movie that there’s a reason to see it on Broadway — but it’s not different enough that you’d like it if you didn’t like the movie.
It’s a better show than Lion King on Broadway, so if you intend to see a Disney musical and enjoyed the Little Mermaid movie and story, you’ll like the Broadway version.
