I haven't seen a design concept that truly works for the mermaids. I will say I liked the heelys better than the current tour stringing Ariel up on a wire in a long flowing skirt. It doesn't look like a tail and it doesn't afford her the fluidity of movement comparable to the way the mermaids swim about in the film. Also I liked "I Want the Good Times Back" much more than "Daddy's Little Angel." The revisions and reordering of scenes and song
I'm honestly curious if this will even still be open when it's supposed to hit my city. I don't plan on seeing it, but I did plan on seeing Whistle Down the Wind and was disappointed when that tour closed early.
This is mostly for the tourists who won't even understand that they're not seeing Jersey Boys on Broadway. And they'll still advertise it as the Tony winning production even though it's Off-Broadway just like Avenue Q does.
It is odd that they're calling it Pre-Broadway and it's closing out of town March 18th. They must be planning to bring it in the following season either fall 2018 or spring 2019. I have to assume there would be no time to preview and open on Broadway that late before the Tony cut off.

It is a little odd. If the pie is supposed to be hot from the oven as the added steam implies, why is she holding it from the bottom at all? Does anyone pull out pies from the oven with their bare hands?
