After an 18-year wait, Disney’s THE LITTLE MERMAID has finally made it to Broadway. And being a Disney production, audience goers have a guarantee of a few things: breath-taking costumes, creative choreography, catchy music that you can’t get out of your head, and entertainment with a gentle message. This musical does not disappoint. Mermaid Ariel (Sierra Boggess) has fallen in love with a human prince (Sean Palmer). In defiance of her father (Norm Lewis), she makes a deal with the devil or in this case her aunt, the amusingly menacing Sherie Rene Scott so that she can be with the human of her dreams. Tituss Burgess as a hysterical cohort crab and Brian D’Addario  as the precious Flounder head up a multi-talented cast.

No matter what your age, THE LITTLE MERMAID is going to delight and astound as only a Disney production can do. Give yourself a treat and go see it.
