My daughter fell in love with the movie Little Mermaid so when we took her to the Broadway production for her 21st birthday on Jan 4 it didn't disappoint - beautiful stage production, excellent cast - Sierra not only has a wonderful voice, but she was totally in character - hard to believe that she wasn't the "Movie" Ariel. And Sean Palmer was every bit the Prince - strong and solid voice also. "Under the Sea" was magical - compliments to Sebastian. Thank you Disney - Bravo!! You've done it again.

I went on a trip to New York City for my 1st time a couple of weeks ago... I saw this play and i really was quite blown away with the singing. Ursula and ariel has such an amazing voice they sounded exactly like the movie version of ariel and ursula..... Now i would take children but children older then 7(Now this just my opinion) Because some of the parts may scare little kids. The costumes and the effects were amazing!!!!!!!. I am really recomending for people to see this play if you ever have a chance............ I was also surprised about how small the theatre was but at least i had really good seats(Close to the stage) I may go to new york next summer so i can see the little mermaid 1 more time.

This is yet another Disney broadway hit for years to come. The orchestra first and foremost was outstanding ! The previous review pretty much slammed the show. You need to review what is presented not what you hope for. Ursula the sea witch in my mind stole the show. I honestly at times felt like i was watching the movie. Ariel's voice was powerful and Sebastian the crab was a fun loving character.. The seagulls do a great tap dance skit and the sets looked amazing. I will highly recommend this play. I have seen The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast multiple times each. This play is better than those 2. I am telling you to get your tickets for this show now because it will be a tough ticket to get in the very near future. Our seats were front row Mezzanine which were outstanding and I would recommend you bring anyone you like because it can be enjoyed by people of all ages. 46th st is a great location because there are plenty of good restaurants nearby ! 5 Stars

The Little Mermaid has been my all-time favorite movie since I was a little girl. I was a bit nervous to see the stage production - how were they possibly going to portray sea life?? But it was PERFECTLY adapted to the stage. The costumes were excellent, the stage set up was amazing, and I can't possibly say enough about the actors and their voices. Ariel - dead on. I cried a handful of times, brought back so many memories.

This was the very first play I have been to, the tickets were a gift to my six year old daughter and i have to say not only was I amazed but this was one of the best experiences of my life, all the performances were perfect i thought i was listening to a cd , not only would I recommend this show to a friend I am going to tell every one I know even people I dont, At the ending of the show it was announced that it would be titus burges last performance, I hope that we will hear more from him
