I'm surprised - I thought it would run longer than a year-and-a-half, but perhaps the tough financial times are partly to blame.
Anyway, here's the story:
The Little Mermaid is set for its final Broadway swim.
The lavish musical based on the Disney animated film will close Aug. 30 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in New York after a run of 685 performances.
Producer Thomas Schumacher says a national tour is planned for fall 2010. It will be followed by overseas productions.
The Little Mermaid opened in January 2008.
