In 1837 Hans Christian Anderson wrote his most beloved tale "The Little Mermaid".  180 years later she is still swimming her way into the hearts of young and old.  On February 26th, Literally Alive Theatre opened their Off-Broadway musical adaptation of this classic tale with books and lyrics by Brenda Bell and music by Michael Sgouros at the Players Theatre located at 115 MacDougal Street (between Bleeker and West 3rd) in Manhattan.  Their adaptation is true to the original story by Hans Christian Andersen, unlike the Disney version, which has a different ending.  "We tell the story in its original form" says Artistic Director Brenda Bell, "We believe that the true ending shows children that every wish has a price and that love comes with many sacrifices."
