Post Has Anyone Seen The Little Mermaid on Broadway?
Has anyone seen The Little Mermaid on Broadway yet? If so, would you care to comment on absolutely anything about the show? Content, new songs, performers, staging, scenery, lighting, special effects, costumes - anything and everything!

It's previewing in Denver. Apparently it's good, but it could be better.

Here are a bunch of detailed reviews about the preview in Denver. As you scroll down, the reviews become more recent and you can tell that Disney is already making improvements. It sounds like Act II needs to be re-worked BIG TIME. I hope they make the necessary changes so that The Little Mermaid will be a success on Broadway.

According to the link, all the sea creatures are on heelies so they glide around. Some of the reviews say they work well, others say they don't like them. Who knows.

All I know is that they better patch things up and rewrite the entire second act before Broadway, because all of the reviews I've read have been terribly negative.

Your signature is pretty big, and it's typically frowned upon to have huge signatures.

You can find the Signature Guidelines here: http://musicals.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=58916 :)

And there are tons of helpful people who will help you re-size, if you need it.

Ohh okay. I'm sorry; I didn't know. Is it better the way it is now?

And thank you!
