If you're a teenager then probably Wicked.

I know people will probably claim you should see another show (I.e. neither POTO nor Wicked), but Wicked is extremely accessible and if you're not into shows you are probably guaranteed to enjoy yourself.

See Wicked, it is fun.

Don't see Phantom of the Opera, ever. Not unless you've seen every other currently running broadway and off-broadway shows. It is tremendously bad.

I agree. Go and see Wicked!
Wicked is more fun and light. I loved it (seen it twice, and am seeing it again in December)/
I'm not a Phantom fan.

If you've seen The Little Mermaid I'm guessing you live in or close to New York? What other shows do you want to see? --Though if you're set on picking between these two, I'd say Wicked. I saw it on tour; it's a fun show to go to.

I also vote you to see Wicked. I will be seeing it in November and I can't wait. I've never seen it before but the score is amazing!
