Fans of the Disney version may want to brace themselves for this outdoor production based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale. (Spoiler alert: That happy ending? Doesn’t happen.) In McCarren Park, Glass Bandits Theater Company present the story of a mermaid who trades her tail for renunciation and loss.
