The Little Mermaid on Broadway Background

Based on one of the most beloved Disney films of all time and the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, The Little Mermaid is the sparkling new Disney musical that has made a big splash on Broadway. Some of Disney's most popular songs are featured in show — including "Part of Your World," "Kiss the Girl," and the Academy Award-winning Best Original Song, "Under the Sea" — by the renowned songwriting team of Alan Menken and Howard Ashman. The stage adaptation also features 10 new songs by Menken and Glenn Slater, plus a book by Tony-winning playwright Doug Wright.

In the tradition of other Disney on Broadway musicals, a visionary team of theater artists from around the world gathered to bring The Little Mermaid to breathtaking life. Helmed by world-renowned director Francesca Zambello, the show will transport you to an underwater world like no other, with choreography by Stephen Mear, scenery by George Tsypin, costumes by Tatiana Noginova and lighting by Tony Award winner Natasha Katz.

What's The Little Mermaid Like?

A solid successor to the now-closed Disney Broadway musical Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid creates a shiny, magical, underwater world onstage. In addition to memorable songs from the animated Disney film version, such as "Under the Sea" and "Kiss the Girl," the Broadway version of The Little Mermaid features several new tunes, as well as an excellent (and real, live, human!) cast.
