It really blew me away! Not knowing what to expect, it starts off with a scene from the movie playing, and I'm thinking Oh No! Not a movie! Then the puppeteers come out...and then Aerial herself. Truely heartwarming! Can't wait to see it again!
This show is not well-paced and you won't understand a moment of it if you haven't seen the movie, but it's absolutely charming. The effects are simple, but that's what makes them great. The live puppeteering is always a treat and the actors are pretty enthuisiastic considering that they do the same show every 25 minutes or so. The storyline could pull at the heartstrings of a teenage punk.
The Little Mermaid is perfomed a lot with live actors and presented masterfully with decent effects. The songs are very well done. It meets Disney standards and if you like Little Mermaid you probably will enjoy it if not, you still might...
Very well done and set on a stage that allows for good viewing by everyone including the littlest kidlets (unlike playhouse Disney). It may be a bit intense at for the smallest kids at one point so be ready to hold their hands.
