Little Mermaid Opening Delayed

Little Mermaid Opening Delayed

According to Playbill, Disney's The Little Mermaid now becomes the fourth Broadway show to indefinitely postpone its scheduled opening night because of the stagehands strike. The other three shows to postpone are Tracy Letts' August: Osage County, Aaron Sorkin's The Farnsworth Invention and Conor McPherson's The Seafarer.

Originally scheduled for December 6, Disney is postponing since the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre is one of the Rialto theatres currently being struck by Local One of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (I.A.T.S.E.) in its nearly two week old action against The League of American Theatres and Producers.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

Kendall,

No new word just yet as far as I've heard. It could be a matter of hours though since every other show with a delayed opening has made a determination on when they'll officially open. I'll certainly write about it when it happens.

Cheers,

Steve

Kendall,

Scratch what I just said. The new opening date for The Little Mermaid is scheduled for January 10, 2008.

Cheers!

Steve
