To make up for all the Little Mermaid!
I promise this is the end of my Little Mermaid binge for the day!
My stopped mixing for some reason so this is pretty raw!
I do not! She might have been a swing that was also a u/s because in the very few ensemble pictures there are from that show I don’t see her in any of them! So sorry!
I am not a dancer.
Like at all.
I can dance, but I don’t like to.
I am so not the person to ask! I’m so sorry! Followers, friends, any help?!
A lot! Certain instruments have been taken out and replaced, there is a full set now, and parts have been added.
If I wrote you a full list it would take me a month and it would the length of Les Mis itself!
This is one you don’t see everyday!
The Little Mermaid on Broadway Costumes: Ariel’s learning to walk costume.
Michelle Lookadoo as u/s Ariel in The Little Mermaid on Broadway
Chelsea Morgan Stock as Ariel in The Little Mermaid on Broadway (Take over after Sierra Boggess Left)
So I totally forgot that Arbender Robinson was u/s Eric in The Little Mermaid…
Betsy was u/s Ariel
Betsy Morgan as u/s Ariel in The Little Mermaid on Broadway
Oooo you know I think both are amazing, obviously it’s still Les Mis and all.
Both have their up sides and down sides though.
The old orchestrations sounded so 80’s like. I mean obviously, it was written in the 80’s, but with the electric guitar and the electric almost baseball sounding piano going it had some pretty agey moments. But the score was long and gorgeous and I miss a LOT of the stuff they cut. Some of which were my favorite lines in the whole show.
The new orchestrations are stunning! Absolutely breath taking! They themselves bring me to tears! I could listen to just the music and no vocals 24/7 and be totally happen! But they butchered the score! Why do they keep cutting it? They keep cutting more and more of the story! Cosette is almost down to nothing at this point and they keep taking more and more from Enjolras and Fantine and handing them to Ensemble which is great but they have cut a lot of the ensemble stuff too!
I don’t think the new orchestrations go very well with the original blocking and sets however. it just looks and sounds odd. You don’t have to totally revamp the entire musical to freshen it up. There is a happy medium in there!
I thought so! When checking through stuff I think the first post I found from her about it was January 2012 so I thought I’d play it safe. Oh, well. Too late to change it now. It’s the thought that counts anyway!
