Fantastic. Certainly better than the costumes in the Broadway performance. They used a lot of reflective pieces in their costumes, but it was much more subtle than Broadway's. That goes for the sets too. They used a lot of reflective streamers which gave the impression of water really well. Eric got an extra couple costume changes, one of which makes him look exactly like Simon from Firefly. They drew a lot from the film and gave it their own spin. It worked out well.

Just FYI Coral. This wasn't a tour. This was one of only two regional performances before Disney froze the rights. Disney is now revamping the musical for a European tour, planning to appeal more to adults and focus more on the relationships in the film, especially Ariel and Triton and Ariel/Eric.
