You have a good eye for detail, Jeremy. Great catch!

A very nice quote:
Review wrote:Since Darren Criss captured national attention as Blaine on "Glee," he has seem destined to portray a Disney prince. His swath of black hair, ineffable charm, and winning voice make him a perfect fit for Menken melodies and fairy-tales. His performance was one of the best of the night, bringing his own swoon-worthy pop arrangement of Eric's tune from the Broadway musical, "Her Voice," to the stage. With his guitar slung over his shoulder and his Eric costume replete with red sash and black boots, Criss made us believe that Prince Eric had simply walked off the screen to join us for the evening.
Review wrote:The presentation included several songs from the recent Broadway adaptation of "The Little Mermaid," allowing characters like Flounder, Prince Eric, and King Triton to express themselves through song. A great second-act quartet "If Only" highlighted the varied and rich vocal talents of the cast, while also emphasizing how naturally these characters translate to the Broadway medium.
