Sunday Showtune: “Part Of Your World”

Check out the beautiful wirework used to simulate swimming from the Japanese production of The Little Mermaid at the Shiki Theatre Company. Beautiful and convincing, although I’m not sure about Ariel’s floating hair…?

The Broadway production of the stage show utilized wheelie sneakers to give the illusion the performers were swimming. I’ve posted a clip from the Broadway show also, just so you can compare.

Added bonus: Broadway featured the fantastic Sierra Boggess as “Ariel” and Norm Lewis as “King Triton.”
