I would be happy if either of them came over
I have got both soundtracks and out of the 2 i think Mermaid is better then Shrek.
Shrek would bring in the audience as so many people like the movie, so they would come just to see it as it has Shrek in the name. The soundtrack is good, but the only songs i dont skip are Princess Fiona's songs, as i think they protray the character so well
But i think they have tired to hard to make Shrek funny when it was already funny.
The Little Mermaid i think would do the same as Shrek, it will bring in an audience just for the name, but i think it will be more successful then Shrek. With Mermaid, it has all the loverable songs that we know and love from the film, and the news songs seem to add to the feel of it all. Yeah some people have some problems with the design of the show and the direction, but that could be improved if the show came here, they can learn from there mistakes and make the show better. Also i think that it would be a good replacement for The Lion King, as i think it has run its time. If you think of the West End, you can name most of the shows that are playing there. So i think that even though Lion King is successful, they need pull it while it is still liked, maybe tour it to keep it popular, and let other newer musical have there time to see if they could work in West End or not. And also think a bit of Disney Fairytale magic is what could keep the blues away during the recession
I would be happier to see Memaid come to the West End, but i would be happy to see both of them here
Well thats what i think. Let me know if anyone totally disagrees with me
