Theater Pizzazz

"Disney’s latest offering at the New Amsterdam Theatre, is simply . . .  maaaahvelous! The costumes, the sets, the kitsch and comedic fun made me feel like a kid again." Full Review

AndyGram

"The reason Aladdin works so well on the stage is that it always seemed destined for it. I'm happy to report that it makes the transition to stage seamlessly in a lavish and magical production that the whole family will enjoy." Full Review

"The stage is alive from beginning to end. It’s a spectacle of lights and sound...Iglehart was a most lovable Genie, and the audience ate him up. It’s not often you see a standing ovation partially through the 1st act, but this stuff is so good. The audience was so energized, that the whole theatre was shaking...So there you have it...Don’t walk….RUN." Full Review

JK's Theatre Scene

"There is joy and wonder aplenty in this un-apologetically funny, entertaining and occasionally showstopping family musical." Full Review

Broadway Voice

"Enchanting but not extreme, magical without unnecessary fireworks, jaw-dropping without having to fly over the audience." Full Review

"Mainly, this Aladdin is F-U-N because it was so craftily assembled. Aladdin is a treat for the eye and ear." Full Review

USA Today

"It's genie-us! 'Aladdin' rubs you the right way" Full Review

WNBC

"The musical comedy is all about one character: the Genie. But that is not the only thing worth talking about. From “Arabian Nights” to “Prince Ali,” Nicholaw uses his multicultural ensemble flawlessly, unraveling layers to each number that surprise and wonder. You’ll also marvel at Gregg Barnes’ stunning costumes, rich in jewel-tones, feathers and sparkle." Full Review

UInterview

"A fun treat for the kids for sure, and even the adults who loathe Disney's theatrical presence will find themselves enjoying the show." Full Review

New Jersey Newsroom

New York Theater

The Huffington Post

"Score Aladdin a considerable win for Disney, likely to fill the New Amsterdam with happy crowds for seasons to come. Better than Little Mermaid, Aida and Tarzan, though not exactly a knockout." Full Review

Stu on Broadway

"Aladdin, while charming and fun, lacks the enchantment and savviness of Disney’s most notable theatrical productions." Full Review

Financial Times (UK)

"Disney wanted something it could market not only to the parents-with-children crowd but also to date-night couples looking for a few laughs. Wish granted. " Full Review

Newsday

"The carpet flies, kids, and it's awesome...Such awesomeness, of course, is to be expected from "Aladdin." But what's a whole new world, as the song promises, is the almost modest, down-to-earth human scale of director-choreographer Casey Nicholaw's big, cheerful production -- an enjoyable throwback to old-time musical comedy." Full Review

The Wall Street Journal

"It's not nearly as good as the movie, but it does have a terrific star, super-duper sets and sensational special effects." Full Review

Classicalite

"It has a flying carpet, a cave full of treasures and show-stopping songs, but...Disney's "Aladdin" lacks the magic of the original Oscar-winning animated film." Full Review

70
The New York Times

"This latest musical adapted from one of Disney’s popular movies defied my dour expectations...“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." Full Review

70
The Hollywood Reporter

"While it doesn't rival the imagination or innovation of "The Lion King," the show's ebullient comic spirit should make it a popular hit. It's not the most sophisticated entertainment, but the target demographic won't mind at all." Full Review

70
Theatermania

"You're going to have a great time at Aladdin, despite its conflict-starved filler of a book. But are you really going for the dramaturgy? No, you're going to see sexy actors sing and dance while performing magic tricks. In that regard, Aladdin delivers in abundance." Full Review

ChrisCaggiano.com

"From where I sat, Aladdin was diverting, to be sure, but ultimately uninspired...it feels like a passable summer-stock production with a Broadway budget. The look is lush and colorful, but the production itself is sluggish and pedestrian." Full Review

Entertainment Weekly

"This is one of the better Disney stage musicals, complete with several eye-popping production numbers" Full Review

Enchanting, Indulgent, Disappointing, Cliched, Overrated

See it if You prefer your magical romance stories to be heartfelt, not cheesy. You don't mind racist portrayals of characters. You like all-male casts

Don't see it if You dislike the feeling of being on The Disney Mill. Felt like entering a ride at Disney World - all fluff, no genuine feeling.

Delightful, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if This is atypical Disney Broadway production with just enough bells and whistles to make it fun and a little more interesting than the movie.

Don't see it if This has talented singers and dancers with a beautifully executed flying carpet scene, during which the audience is looking for the strings.

Funny, Delightful, Enchanting

See it if You're looking for an uplifting, family-friendly musical with some good laughs. The staging is excellent.

Don't see it if I thought the added songs were quite weak and didn't really add to the show. The whole thing had a bit of a "panto" feel.

See it if you are or aren't a Disney enthusiast. Young & old alike should go for it's beautiful staging, costumes, humor, & songs with messages.

Delightful, Banal, Disappointing, Overrated, Entertaining

See it if you really want to see 'A Whole New World' performed with the live flying carpet

Don't see it if it's a poor adaptation. I was a big fan of the movie, and it's a high bar given animals are key characters - doesn't translate to stage

Enchanting, Dated, Great singing

See it if Aladdin-lovers will not be disappointed with ever so talented Genie. Colorful sets with the recognizable score

Don't see it if Besides Genie and the carpet, a rather forgettable performance. Not bad but not as whimsical as the source material may suggest
