Little Mermaid in New Orleans

The tour of The Little Mermaid continued last week at the 2,700 seat Saenger Theatre in New Orleans.  The theater had been dormant since hurricane Katrina struck in 2005.  When the $52 million dollar restoration and tear-down began, the 1927 blueprints were found in an obscure closet and the theater has now been restored to its original glory.

The show has been selling out to near capacity in every city long before the show dates.  When we attended, the theater was filled with parents and their children, mainly little girls, quivering with excitement to see one of their favorite Disney heroines.  By the end of the show, many of them had decided they wanted to marry Prince Eric. (Perhaps some of the big girls did too...)
