The Little Mermaid swam to the big screen in a 1989 American animated film produced by Disney and like the upcoming live-action film soon to be released nationwide is loosely based on the 1836 Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale. The animated film won two Academy Awards; for Best Song (“Under the Sea”) and for Best Original Score. The Broadway stage adaptation of the animated film began performances on Broadway in January of 2008.
The musical stage version centers on Ariel, the youngest daughter of King Triton, who is dissatisfied with life in the sea. She longs to be with the humans above the surface, so she meets Ursula, the Sea Witch, to strike a deal that will turn her into a human; Ursula has bigger plans for this little mermaid and her father.
