I specifically asked to see this show for three reasons. One - until last night I had never seen The Little Mermaid. (GASP!) There, I said it. Doubly strange perhaps since I actually know Jodi Benson, original star of the Disney classic. Two - I wanted to see the incredible Emily Ann Theatre & Gardens. What a gorgeous venue! This compound is an artist's dream and Wimberley is fortunate to be home to this gem. And three - I wanted to see what magic director Bridget Farias Gates would bring to this production. Gates, a Best Director winner (Broadway World Austin) enjoys an impeccable reputation as one of Austin's most beloved and respected artists - no small feat in a city teeming with talent. As expected, Gates delivered a powerful production with a cast and crew more than ready to wow the audience. The Emily Ann Theatre is very blessed to have Gates as their artistic director.

Ah, Commedia dell'arte, how I love it - the zanier the better. Austin's La Fenice (the phoenix) has been delivering the genre since 2010, a rebirth of the former Austin Commedia Society (1999 - 2003).
