Plunge into the colorful depths of an undersea wonderland as the Lucie Stern stage is transformed into an aquatic playground underscored by a funky Calypso beat. From the creators of Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and Little Shop of Horrors, this enchanting musical features an infectious score that includes the popular songs "Part of Your World", "Under the Sea", and "Kiss the Girl". Adapted from the beloved fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen into one of Disney's most popular animated films of all time, THE LITTLE MERMAID is now a lavish theatrical spectacle you won't want to miss.
"Visually ingenious and emotionally satisfying. A musical that does justice to the lovely film from which it sprang."
- The Wall Street Journal
