The producers of Broadway's new The Little Mermaid musical have been forced to postpone the show's official opening night due to the ongoing stagehands strike. The curtain was scheduled to rise on 6 December (07), but now all previews, which have been halted, will resume when the dispute is resolved and a revised plan for opening night will be announced at that time. The much-anticipated musical began previews at Broadway's Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on 3 November (07).
