In the Disney animated classic “The Little Mermaid”, Ariel just wants to grow some legs so she can join Prince Eric on the land.
But if she’s a Eurovision fan, she may want to stay under the water.
That’s because it has emerged that Israel’s Eurovision 2016 act Hovi Star and its Eurovision 2014 singer Mei Finegold will co-star in an upcoming musical adaptation of the cartoon. We’ve already phoned the embassy to check on our tourist visas…
Hovi, who is known for using the word b*tch as frequently as he blinks, will be trading in the foul language for a bit of feel-good, family fun as he portrays “Star of the Sea”. We were hoping he’d be Ariel.
In any event, the “Made of Stars” singer will no doubt make the most of his role and, judging from the promotional photo above, he’ll be getting real close with the witch Ursula, played by “Same Heart” singer Mei Finegold.
According to mako.co.il, Mei’s five-year-old daughter was convinced her mother is actually a witch, forcing Mei to repeatedly tell her it’s just a game of dress-up.
When we get more information about the theatre, dates and time we’ll be sure to share it with you so you can book your place.
And while we wait, what Eurovision stars would you like to see in a musical adaptation of The Little Mermaid? Should Barei say yay under the sea? Should Conchita Wurst take on the role of loveable sidekick Sebastian? Let us know below!
