Mermaid Could "Score" a Tony

The Tony Awards Administration Committee has determined that the score for Disney's The Little Mermaid, which consists of the classic Howard Ashman/Alan Menken movie songs as well as new tunes by Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater, is "original" enough to be considered for Broadway's top honor. If it wins, Ashman would score a Tony seventeen years after his death.

In other Tony 2008 decisions, Mermaid's prince and princess, Sean Palmer and Sierra Boggess, will be considered in the lead categories, while the scene stealing Ursula, Sherie Rene Scott, will be up for the Featured Actress prize.
