Word just got out that the Broadway version of Beauty and the Beast will perform it’s last show on July 29. The Lunt-Fontanne Theatre will then become the home of Disney’s new Broadway musical, The Little Mermaid. More are Playbill and Broadwayworld.
Alan Menken says a few words about both Beauty and Mermaid, nothing about Aladdin though. Perhaps more info about that adaption will be released after Mermaid opens. Letâ€™s hope the Dutch Tarzan musical will fare well enough that Stage Entertainment brings Ariel to Scheveningen in the not too far future.
