The show first premiered at the 5th Avenue Playhouse in Seattle, Washington in 2011. It made it to Broadway three years later where James Monroe Iglehart (Genie) and Courtney Reed (Jasmine) received awards for best performances. Many reviews pointed to Iglehart’s performance of the classic song, “Friend Like Me” as the highlight of the show and a moment of pure delight. The show has gone on to be performed and won awards in England and Australia as well.
Reviews from critics highlight the non-stop visual effects and excitement. Sword fights, glittery costumes, “eye-popping sets”, and “spirited choreography” (Entertainment Weekly) keep audience members – the younger, the better – on the edge of their seats for the whole show. The flying magic carpet scene is a wonderfully executed special effect that will make viewers gasp with delight. The New York Times also enjoyed the visual richness of the performance and said, “Aladdin has an infectious and only mildly syrupy spirit. Not to mention enough baubles, bangles and beading to keep a whole season of RuPaul’s Drag Race contestants in runway attire.”
Variations From the Film
For those who think the Disney film, Aladdin, was absolutely perfect, rest assured that there are few differences between it and the musical. The minor variations include replacing the film’s character of Abu with three friends: Omar, Kassim, and Babkak. These kooky guys bring just as much fun and support to Aladdin as you would want him to have. The musical also incorporates the songs from the film as well as seven new songs! Three of these were written for the film but ultimately left out, and the rest are brand new. You get everything you love, and then some!
The Aladdin Experience
Come take an enchanting, hilarious, and romantic carpet ride with the cast of Aladdin the musical. It has all the magic of the story you already love, but brought to life with even more wonder and thrills for you to experience up close and personal in a live theater production.
