Disney's The Little Mermaid Live Special to Air on ABC

May 16, 2017

ABC is planning its own take on the live television musical with The Wonderful World of Disney: Little Mermaid Live, a two-hour special that will air October 3.

The special will combine the 1989 animated film with live musical performances from celebrity artists performing songs from the Alan Menken-Howard Ashman score. According to ABC, the special will use cutting edge technology to deliver a "never-before-seen live action/animation hybrid television experience."

Disney is also planning a live-action film remake of The Little Mermaid, featuring additional musical material from Hamilton star and creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, who will collaborate with Menken on the project.

The television special is inspired by the celebrity-studded concerts that took place at the Hollywood Bowl last year. The cast included Sara Bareilles as Ariel, Tituss Burgess as Sebastian the Crab, Darren Criss as Prince Eric, Rebel Wilson as Ursula the Sea Witch, Norm Lewis repeating his Broadway role as King Triton, Joshua Colley as Flounder, and John Stamos as Chef Louis.

[. . . ]

Upcoming live musical broadcasts also include Bye Bye Birdie and Jesus Christ Superstar on NBC, as well as A Christmas Story the Musical and Rent on Fox.







Aw, nice twitter conversation.  So sweet of Cynthia Erivo.  :happy face

I love Billboard's support of Darren!  Nice wish list from Billboard:

Fox announced that 'Rent' will be its next live musical.
It follows last year’s 'Grease Live,' which opened with a performance from Jessie J and starred Julianne Hough, Carly Rae Jepson and Vanessa Hudgens. With that star power, we’re sure Rent will follow suit. Here’s our wish list to fill out the rock musical’s ensemble.

Darren Criss as Benny
We’re used to seeing Darren as a charming her, so wouldn’t it be delicious seeing him play the slimy businessman? And there’s something fun about him playing a role made famous by Taye Diggs -- as they both took turns as the namesake in Broadway’s adaptation of Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

Our hearts are broken. Yesterday (May 16, 2017) this world lost a beautiful soul in our dear friend and irreplaceable DCA team member, Marsha (@hellomaleka). We will miss her terribly.

We also know she’d kick our asses for wallowing in tears for too long, so we will do our best to celebrate her incredible spirit and find joy on the hardest of days, just like she always did. 

Marsha, we love you, and you are with us always.

I remember that Darren once had praised her art design for a shirt (or shirts) used for his 30th birthday fundraiser:

Cute pics.  Thanks Mia!  What they are doing looks very hard to do.  I was curious what a wombat is, so I googled it.  Wikipedia's definition made me laugh.  "Wombats are short-legged, muscular quadrupedal marsupial . . . "

We now see one of the photos from the TodayTix photo shoot on display.  So now, I'm not so sure if that photo shoot was or was not a hint of Darren returning to Broadway?

Love the message about looking at theater differently.  :happy face

From Darren Criss Army:

Thanks Mason, for capturing the poster!

Last week (for Round 1) of VOTING in Macy's iHeartRadio Rising Star contest!  Keep voting guys!   I finally started a Twitter Account, but am using it solely to vote for Computer Games, at least for now. :happy face

So . . . a bit of excitement among the fandom today, yes?     :cheeky  

I'm glad Darren's not shy.   :amused   I hope he really is not that red (he didn't look that red in the BottleRock videos, did he?)

Anyway, I'm not gonna post that pic, because I'm afraid the Forumotion police will take down this little forum.    :lol

I'll post a few responses from folks who seem to feel great dismay about Darren getting a horrible sunburn.   Razz

Note:  If you are confused about what is "covfefe," it's a reference to a tweet from Trump:  https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2017/05/31/president-trump-tweets-despite-the-constant-negative-press-covfefe-twitter-explodes/?utm_term=.09d4d34dfd5b    here are some hilarious suggested definitions of "covfefe" on Urban Dictionary:  http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Covfefe&defid=11630863

Does anyone remember that time Darren was encouraging people to audition for The Glee Project with Robert Ulrich, and Darren said at Point 1:07 . . .

charlenekaye: Can’t believe this May five years ago, I was deep in #APOCALYPTOUR with my @therealteamstarkid family, opening for them and playing gtr in their backing band. It was my first tour after releasing Animal Love and I’m so grateful to them for bringing me along. enough stories to tell for a lifetime in those weeks which I STILL tell regularly. It’s crazy to think of how much has happened since then - thanks everyone who’s stuck w me.  heart new music from me coming real soon  #dontpooponthebus

I'm sad to hear that dailydarrennews is saying goodbye to their tumblr.  I'm not sure, but it sounds like their tumblr still may be used to post larger photo sets, so there's that.  They did a fantastic job keeping up with Darren--and he is one difficult guy to keep up with--considering the many activities he is engaged in.   If you have a moment, please tweet or post thanks to dailydarrennews.   

In the meantime, they still will be using their twitter account to report on news about Darren.  I would like to encourage people who like to use tumblr to follow Darren, to support Darren Criss Army.  And there is the fan-run blog for Computer Games:  Computer Games Street Team .

"The California Junior Classical League was founded in 1955 to provide a forum for Latin students to compete in a wide range of academic, art, and athletic contests, both individually and by chapter."   Source:  https://www.facebook.com/pg/CAJCL/about/?ref=page_internal

I had heard that Darren studied Latin, so it's interesting for me to hear more about what he did in connection with that study.  :happy face





There has been quite a bit of media coverage over Darren's instagram.  You can google him and you will come across many articles. 

I find some of reaction comments to be funny.   You can find many of the reactions (as well as media coverage) here:  https://dcriss-archive.tumblr.com/tagged/acs-versace
