So the Little Mermaid Musical has some lovely ideas... and a WHOLE LOT of really ugly ideas as well.
I decided to ease my own mind by thinking up a few revisions to the show.
First step: getting rid of that ridiculous skirt that the mermaids wear to hide their legs. It's a broadway show, seeing the legs in a color similar to the background gives us the idea that their not supposed to be viewed. (The skirts just distracted you from the rest of the costume, and you lose focus on the artistry of the tail movements and performers.
