The Little Mermaid officially opened last year on January 10th on Broadway in New York and will closed on August 30, 2009 after 685 performances. The Little Mermaid had a pre-Broadway tryout at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts’ Ellie Caulkins Opera House July 26, 2007 through September 9, 2007, which turned out to be exactly 50 shows. Every seat available (approximately 95,000 seats) for the 6-week run was sold out.
The Broadway production is directed by Francesca Zambello, and is choreographed by Stephen Mear. Scenic design is by George Tsypin, costume design by Tatiana Noginova and lighting design by Natasha Katz. The original cast features Sierra Boggess in the title role of Ariel, Sean Palmer as Prince Eric, Brian D’Addario and Trevor Braun alternate as Flounder, Norm Lewis as King Triton, Sherie Rene Scott as Ursula, Tituss Burgess as Sebastian, Tyler Maynard as Flotsam, Derrick Baskin as Jetsam, Jonathan Freeman as Grimsby, and John Treacy Egan as Chef Louis. To assist the performers in achieving the effect of underwater movement on stage, the actors wear wheel-heeled footwear.
