Dive under the sea with Ariel the mermaid in this splashy Disney musical.
Heidi Blickenstaff, that singer full of sass and sugar, is The Little Mermaid’s new sea witch, Ursula. Everyone knows Heidi from playing “Heidi” (a version of herself) in meta-musical [title of show] on Broadway last summer—and knocking ‘em dead with her big number: “A Way Back to Then.” Now Blickenstaff has replaced Sherie Rene Scott, the role’s originator, in the splashy Disney phenomenon. How does the friendly actress from Fresno become the ocean’s most loathed villainess? We headed to the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre to find out. Click on for an audience with The Little Mermaid’s new queen of mean.
