Staged by Tony Award winners and featuring puppetry in the spirit of Disney's hyper-successful "The Lion King" musical, "Finding Nemo - The Musical" features an original song score from the composer of "Avenue Q," Robert Lopez, and his wife, Kristen Anderson-Lopez.
Clocking in at little over 35 minutes, the show recaps the plot of the Academy Award-winning Pixar animated feature, using lighting and props to create an "underwater" environment.
"Finding Nemo - The Musical" plays daily in the Theater in the Wild at Disney's Animal Kingdom.
Frankly, I am bit surprised to see Nemo in the lower half of the bracket, but the Best Live Show bracket is turning out to be quite a bit more competitive than I expected when I first started going through your collective reader ratings to seed the tournament. Will enough Disney/Pixar fans show up to propel Nemo to a first-round upset? We'll find out when voting begins in March for the Best Theme Park Attraction Tournament. In the meantime, please share your thoughts about Nemo, in the comments.Tweet
Now in late 2009, I stand by both my rating and my brief, but concise review.
I would give an award to AK for having the best shows.
Besides the stage being a little odd, I can only think of good things to say about this show!
Still, it's an underrated show and a worthy competitor.
Love that song!
Like the "Go with the Flow as well!"
