Both young and old converged at the Meralco Theater to see the animated movie brought to life by hit singers Rachelle Ann Go and Erik Santos, who play the lead roles of Ariel and Prince Eric. Together they make their stage theater debut in this musical, which also features a cast from both music and theater including Jinky Llamanzares, OJ Mariano, and Calvin Millado to name a few.
The audience got treated to familiar tunes from the Disney animated classic including “Part of Your World” and “Under the Sea” combined with new songs especially created for the Broadway stage adaptation.
