Last night, a friend informed me that there is a new broadway musical for that Disney animation blockbuster, The Little Mermaid. It’s also fortunate to know that the original Broadway cast recording of the musical is good. Well,I just scurried through the information about the musical and found out that the role of Ariel is being played by a newbie, Sierra Boggess, who is debuting for Broadway. I am also excited to know that Norm Lewis (Javert of Les Miserables revival) is King Triton. I guess, the new musical is one to behold musically as with the original animated movie but some reviews pointed out the lack of creativity in the costumes, unlike The Lion King and Beauty and Beauty and the Beast. But the cast sings very well.
New Song: If Only
The cast recording is another addition to my musicals collection. hehe
