In Aladdin: The Musical, audiences are transported into an Arabian fairy tale in which amateur thief and "worthless street rat" Aladdin comes into possession of a lamp that imprisons a benevolent genie with the ability to turn Aladdin's life of rags to one of riches. With only three wishes and the girl of his dreams hanging in the balance, Aladdin must choose carefully what to do with them. Aladdin: The Musical had its opening night March 20, 2014, and has been a hit with audiences and critics ever since. The score--by Alan Menken, Howard Ashman and Tim Rice--features songs made popular by the 1992 Disney animated film, in addition to songs that were cut from the film and a few new songs written for the show by Chad Bugeulin.
Why We Go:
A family-friendly fairy tale with a Bollywood feel that translates very well to stage, Aladdin: The Musical is a visual and emotional treat for viewers of all ages. The choreographed numbers, harem costumes, and beautiful sets are astounding, transporting the audience to the streets of Agrabah. Many children's favorite songs in the film will surely be crowd favorites of the Broadway adaptation. James Monroe Iglehart, who plays the shape-shifting blue Genie, evokes nostalgia and the Robin Williams performance in the truly larger-than-life "Friend Like Me."
- Fun For All Ages: It may seem like Aladdin: The Musical would be a performance only enjoyed by the young and young-at-heart, but the show also has a lot to offer adult viewers too. In particular, there are a lot of ba-dum-dum jokes and self-referential humor ("We don't have time for self-discovery," Jafar snaps) for the adults that serves to distract from the somewhat formulaic Disney plot. The play contains no scenes that would be too violent or scary for younger viewers.
- Critical Acclaim: Considered one of the better Disney stage adaptations, Aladdin: The Musical has jaw-dropping production, impeccably choreographed routines, elaborate sets, and incredible costumes. Even critics who frequently have disdain for Disney stage adaptations, which they see as being predictable and outdated, have had much lavish praid for Aladdin: The Musical.
Jonathan Freeman, who voiced Jafar in the 1992 Disney film, reprises his role in this stage adaptation. Casey Nichelaw, best known for his work on The Book of Mormon, directed and choreographed Aladdin: The Musical. Most of the music performed in the stage adaptation comes directly from the film, including some songs that were cut such as one called "Proud of Your Boy," a ballad performed early in the first act in which Aladdin laments to his mother about his troubled past.

- Don't Take Flash Photography: Although you may want to take pictures of the stunning visuals or characters taking a ride on the magic carpet, members of the audience are discouraged from taking pictures of the performances. Photography can disrupt performers and can put their safety at risk.
- Don't Forget to Check Out the Souvenirs: You will definitely want to commemorate seeing Aladdin: The Musical, surely a once-in-a-lifetime experience, by purchasing a souvenir before or after the performance, or during intermission. In addition to souvenir playbills containing pictures of the cast and sets, you will find posters, plush dolls, bangle bracelets, and even a magic lamp ornament of your very own.
