Beauty makes room for Mermaid

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. Let’s hope the Dutch Tarzan musical will fare well enough that Stage Entertainment brings Ariel to Scheveningen in the not too far future.
