In a magical kingdom beneath the sea, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above. Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories, with music by eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken, it’s a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. Come fall in love with the magic for the first time—or all over again with classics such as “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl, “Part of Your World” and more! Disney’s THE LITTLE MERMAID is produced by Pittsburgh CLO & Kansas City Starlight.
Audiences around the world first read the story of Ariel, a mermaid longing to be part of the human world, in Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid. In 1989, fans of the classic story saw it re-imagined on the silver screen in Disney’s animated movie. The uplifting score and memorable characters made a lasting impact that led the way for a Broadway musical version of the magical fairy tale. With timeless music from Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, the musical was a hit on the Great White Way when audiences saw the Disney classic come to life onstage.
Disney’s The Little Mermaid made its Broadway debut at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on January 8, 2010. It made a splash in New York City, garnering two Tony Award® nominations for Best Original Score and Best Lighting Design of a Musical. In addition, the production’s soundtrack was nominated for a Grammy for Best Musical Show Album.
