BWW Review: Disney's THE LITTLE MERMAID Goes Under The Sea at Wolf TrapBWW Review: Disney's THE LITTLE MERMAID Goes Under The Sea at Wolf Trap
by Keith Tittermary - Jun 30, 2017

Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman made their mark with the early Disney musicals, and always included a sense of "home" and "belonging".
