No disrespect to any of the lovely actresses that have played Ursula on-stage, flash costumes of course – I just naturally want to hear something akin to Pat Carroll. Ursula. But that’s just my opinion. That’s why it kind of disappoints me that they made Ursula thinner for the Broadway show. I mean, spiderman costumes I understand Alan Menken’s reasoning – he says that Ursula complains about “wasting away” and yet fat Ursula doesn’t seem to reflect that visually.
