BWW Review: THE LITTLE MERMAID is Silly, Inconsequential Fun at the Dr. Phillips CenterBWW Review: THE LITTLE MERMAID is Silly, Inconsequential Fun at the Dr. Phillips Center
by Matt Tamanini - Mar 8, 2017

Last night, Ariel and her underwater friends swam into the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts for a weeklong stay, appropriately at the Walt Disney Theatre. The limited engagement, which originated at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre in November 2016, is a silly dose of fun and nostalgia for theatregoers of all ages. Though there are performances and elements that seem less than fitting for the grand Dr. Phillips stage, the show as a whole ends up being more than the sum of its parts. (more...)

But it owes much of its must-see status to the winning all-star line-up that has been assembled for this special event. Yet, although the cast may have been the initial draw, the audience was treated to a truly magical evening all around. (more...)
