Why See Aladdin?
A Whole new theatrical experience!
One of Broadway's finest family shows, don't miss the spectacle that is Aladdin on tour! Based on the beloved movie, we follow our plucky hero as he tries to win the heart of Princess Jasmine and keep his magic lamp (Genie included) from the clutches of the evil Jafar! Featuring all the songs from the movie including, 'A Whole New World' and 'A Friend Like Me', Aladdin also welcomes some brand new hits my music maestros Alan Menken and Chad Beguelin.
The Broadway production opened in 2014, and was greeted with enthusiastic reviews and five Tony nominations. Spectacular fun for all the family, the show has launched international productions in Japan, Germany and the UK.
WHAT IS ALADDIN ABOUT?
Aladdin is a charming street urchin in Agrabah, who, when 'exploring' the mysterious Cave of Wonders, uncovers an ancient lamp that proves to be more than just a lighting solution. He unwittingly frees the lamp's resident wacky Genie, who grants him three wishes. Transformed from pauper to Prince, Aladdin catches the eye of beautiful but bored Princess Jasmine, who longs for some adventure of her own!
But it's not all a smooth magic carpet ride, because Aladdin isn't the only one that knows of the lamp's power. Enter the nefarious Jafar and his minions, who have plans for three wishes of their own and it's up to Aladdin to defeat him to keep the Kingdom from his clutches.

SHINING shimmering Splendid
Disney has truly shown us a whole new world - shining, shimmering, splendid!
I coined a new phrase in the middle of this show, a lightbulb moment if you will, as I witnessed a plethora of lavish costumes and impressive sets brought to life by a giant cast of 39. This is the Disney Dollar! I wondered how other shows could ever comRead full review
