'Little Mermaid' Closing August 30, Tour Planned
Disney's Broadway musical The Little Mermaid is closing Aug. 30. A national tour is planned to launch Fall 2010.
Thomas Schumacher, producer and president of Disney Theatrical Productions, said in a statement today:
The Little Mermaid will have played 50 previews and 685 performances when it closes.
Rumors suggest that the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, currently home to The Little Mermaid, could host the new Broadway musical The Addams Family beginning early 2010, but nothing has been confirmed.
