Explore the Great World Under the Sea at The Little Mermaid on Broadway
Features: The Little Mermaid on Broadway played at Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in NYC. Featuring the same characters and storyline as the classic Disney animation with the same name, The Little Mermaid Musical told the tale of Ariel, a young mermaid with a free spirit who wishes to live on land. Her father, Triton the sea king forbids Ariel from the dangerous sea shore, but after she sees a shipwreck and falls head-over-heals for a human, Prince Eric, Ariel's heart leads her to disobey, seeking help from her evil aunt, Ursula and her dark spells.
Why We Go: The Little Mermaid Disney Broadway musical was one of the most popular NYC shows for all ages and features the beloved classic music from the well-known 1989 Disney film.
- Nostalgic Charm: Seeing Little Mermaid Disney on Broadway brought back great memories for young adults and older generations who knew and loved the adorable characters and catchy songs like "Under the Sea," "Part of Your World" and "Kiss the Girl" from the 1989 Disney film.
- Award-Winning Musical: During its run on Broadway, the Little Mermaid Musical won two Tony Awards and three Drama Desk Awards, proclaiming how talented the cast and crew were.
- Family-Friendly: Bridging generation gaps always makes for a fun family experience, and Little Mermaid on Broadway was a great way to do that. Older generations remembered the beloved storyline, while young children were given the chance to get to know Ariel and the gang.
Inside Knowledge: Although the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre is an intimate venue, it features mezzanine seating that goes pretty far back and each section's price range reflects the seat quality. Choose your tickets based on your preference of price or view quality at this particular theater.
Do's and Don'ts:
- Do Absorb the Underwater Scene: The stage presents the two worlds that separate Ariel and Prince Eric. "Under the Sea" like the featured song title, and life above land are both portrayed with beautiful color palates and impressive design.
- Do Be Aware of Potential Scares: The Little Mermaid on Broadway was definitely meant for kids and families, but as in every Disney story, there is a villain, Ursula who has evil and dark qualities, so be aware when taking little ones to see this show.
- Don't Skip the Live Performance: Just because guests may be familiar with the popular Disney animated movie doesn't mean they won't fully enjoy the live production of The Little Mermaid musical. Many of the songs featured were favorites from the film, but some new additional songs written by Oscar-winner Alan Menken made the play a different experience than the movie.
- Don't Let Your Eyes Fool You: There were plenty of stage tricks and intricate designs and special effects involved in the production of this Disney on Broadway play, but they only enhanced the visual appeal and further captivated audiences.
