The Little Mermaid the musical

Sorry, I've been swamped with work and haven't had much time to explore fun in Vancouver for awhile. I did manage to make it out to Align Entertainment's mounting of Disney's The Little Mermaid musical however! And boy am I glad I did!

For a local theatre company, Align Entertainment manages to put on quite the production at the Michael J. Fox theatre! The Little Mermaid had wonderful stage settings and props, and a huge cast of characters, and pretty much the most perfect live-action Ariel ever! She was like the cartoon come to life, vocal gymnastics and all!

I wish Ursula had just a little bit more oomph to her, but she was good as well. I think because the animated version is just so campy and over the top, the live performance was gonna be hard to measure up.

The Little Mermaid is on now at the Michael J. Fox theatre until February 18! Go be part of their world!
