A Splashing Good Time
Disney recently announce that its newest Broadway adventure would be the musical addaption of The Little Mermaid. Wow, does that sound amazing! How the heck are they gonna accomplish such- can't wait to see it. The Little Mermaid is the first Disney movie ever to have songs and score written by Alan Menken, who also did Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Pocahontas and The Hunchback of Notre Dame to name a few. No one can write a melody that can rip out your heart like he can. Besides Beauty and the Beast, if not as much as, I've always felt that The Little Mermaid had the best emotional pull of any story that Disney has animated. After all, who hasn't had dreams just out of their reach but yet close enough to touch?
