Little Mermaid Review from Sacramento Press

Hi fans,
Here is an excerpt from today's review (pertaining to Eric) in the Sacramento Press:
Prince Eric (the heroic and sensitive Eric Kunze) is being groomed by his father to take over his kingdom, though – as he tells his crew – “I’d rather be a sailor than a prince any day.”
In an effort to distance himself from daddy’s expectations, he spends as much time at sea as possible, though royal mentor Grimsby (the properly officious Ron Wisniski) is always in tow.
When a squall lands Eric in the drink, Ariel swims to his rescue.
Prince Eric’s back-story is more fully explored in this expanded (and darker) stage version that also features two new songs (with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Glenn Slater): “Daddy’s Little Angel” (Ursula) and “If Only” (Ariel).
It’s impossible to talk about the show’s songs, without bestowing kudos to the entire cast for their Ariel-like vocal talents.
Words like “passionate,” “flawless,” and “simply perfect” come to mind when attempting to ascribe adjectives to their performances.
