'Little Mermaid' Live Musical Postponed by ABC

'Little Mermaid' Live Musical Postponed by ABC

The live version of the musical The Little Mermaid that was scheduled to air on ABC this October has been postponed by the network.

Reports claimed that the production would include parts of the movie and also live performances of the songs, similar to last year’s Hollywood Bowl production starring Sara Bareilles as Ariel.

“We are postponing the Little Mermaid Live special. We love the idea of doing a live musical and want to make it wonderful. The project is so unique that we are making best efforts to do it next year and want to give it all the attention it deserves,” an ABC spokesperson said in a statement to THR.

The outlet reports that the live show has been postponed due to financial issues.

If you’re looking forward to a live musical on television, NBC is airing Jesus Christ Superstar next Easter and Fox will be doing Rent next year as well.
