THERE IS SOMETHING BRILLIANT GOING ON AT THE WHITE PLAINS PERFORMING ARTS CENTER. With their production of Disney’s THE LITTLE MERMAID, they have once again succeeded in providing epic spectacle but also find the heart and center of the story which is so often forgotten. The production lands with a satisfying splash, making imaginative use of the stage and creative set pieces to transport audiences from under the sea to dry land and back again. Mr. Quinn sustains a sense of gentle spontaneity and fun while keeping the show within the accepted bounds of “Disney entertainment”. While the Broadway production flopped, suffice it to say that Mr. Quinn and his collaborators have fooled the naysayers and given us a production that more than does justice to the lovely little film from which it sprang. I’d see it again in a heartbeat.

ONCE AGAIN, JEREMY QUINN HAS STAGED AN INSPIRED PRODUCTION. Fresh off their reimagined “Sweeney Todd”, this production of Disney’s THE LITTLE MERMAID proves good theatre is happening in White Plains. The staging and costumes are larger than life. The whole experience makes for a magical feeling of being immersed in a sea adventure. Children of all ages will marvel at the singing, the staging, the cast presence, and the costumes in this shimmering jewel of a show. All in all, the production of “The Little Mermaid” is an artistic triumph. Mr. Quinn has given this production a fresh spin that will enchant all “Little Mermaids” who aspire to live out their dreams with their handsomest, most helpful and loving prince.
