Little Mermaid opened on Broadway in 2007, winning two Tony Awards along with many other awards during its run. Since its closing in 2009, productions of the show popping up all over the nation with this latest display in Bryan being the most recent.
The musical includes all of the songs fans know and love from the classic 1989 movie as well as a couple of new ones added specifically for the transition to the stage. Be prepared to sing along as Ariel finds love and freedom on her journey out of the sea and onto dry land right here in Bryan.
