As I am writing this, I just got back from seeing my high school alma mater's performance of The Little Mermaid. While it was a great performance, I noticed several things different in the musical from the movie that I couldn't help but write about.
1. More Singing
2. Ariel's Singing
Remember when Ariel loses her voice and doesn't talk for a good half of the movie? In the musical, she still sings even without her voice. It's set up so you are aware that it's just in her thoughts so she is not actually singing.
3. Aunt Ursula
In the musical, Ursula and Triton both have Poseidon as their father. This was in the original movie script but was taken out. Hoever it resurfaced in the musical.
4. Scuttle Stole The Show
5. Max Isn't In It
6. The Order Is Different
No matter these differences, I love both versions of The Little Mermaid and am glad to have experienced them.
