Disney presents the stage adaptation of its animated blockbuster, featuring the hit songs from the film, plus several more written for Broadway. More…
'Aladdin' tells the story of a poor young man who is granted wishes by a magic genie. This new musical is filled with adventure, comedy and romance as it follows Aladdin's quest to marry a princess and defeat an evil Sultan.
See it if you like slick, polished entertainment. Staging is imaginative, songs are good, nice sets, garish costumes. Good (not great) performances.
Don't see it if you want any real moments; the acting is wooden/broad. The book is lame/ sexist. Of dozen main roles, ONE is female. A lesser Disney work.
See it if You're a fan of big musicals with big production numbers, set changes, lavish costumes or if you have kids and are looking for a family show
Don't see it if You are looking for an edgy dark piece or don't like family friendly entertainment.
See it if You enjoy the Disney brand of musical. This is done well. Great story, sets, costumes and lighting. Fun to watch and be a part of.

See it if Great to bring my kids and to see them enjoy it! Great songs and staging. A fun story to it
Don't see it if If you dont like kids screaming and talking during performance. If you do not like Disney big productions.
See it if you enjoy Disney theme park entertainment. They've distilled one of their more mature films down to watered-down childish pablum.
Don't see it if you aren't looking to entertain the kids or if you don't think the price is worth one cool effect. (The magic carpet ride is pretty neat.)
See it if you like big production numbers with lavish costumes, you liked the film, see great acting by the Genie, a good score and a magic carpet.
Don't see it if you don't like Disney musicals, feel this show is pablum, think all the dancing, costumes and special effects are just too much!!!
See it if catchy Menken tunes, clever lyrics, lush orchestra, several show-stopping scenes, the new Genie is a baller
Don't see it if sets are cheesy (Disney you can afford better!), a few weak links among actors, groundbreaking movie w/ Robin W. is funnier
See it if You want to be entertained. You want big production numbers. You want big effects & sparkly costumes.You want to laugh. You want to be wowed
Don't see it if You don't like big production numbers. You want a more substantial story. You don't like big sets & costumes. You hate Disney.
See it if you like sequins. Bright shinny entertainment. Lots of good fun and silly humor. Great singing and dancing and fantastic sets & costumes.
Don't see it if you want more then a good time. This is not thought provoking theater.
See it if You want a big, flashy, fun musical for the whole family.
Don't see it if You don't like Disney or Aladdin in any manner, or expect it to live up to the film.
See it if You love musicals, Broadway, great costumes sets and singing and dancing.
Don't see it if The show is beautiful and worth seeing for a full Broadway experience. The story is not interesting but the staging is.
See it if Very enjoyable show. Great sets and production numbers. Very witty dialogue especially by genie. Bring the children for a wonderful time!
Don't see it if Not a sophisticated show. Very colorful and lively. If you like serious or understated, don't go to this show.

See it if you liked the movie and want to see a flashy stage adaptation. See it for the special effects (and the magic carpet!).
Don't see it if you aren't a Disney person.
See it if you have younger children or, like me, grew up on Disney; want a light hearted time and see a magical carpet fly
Don't see it if you want a show that makes you think or dislike sitting around children
See it if a fan of Disney's animated Aladdin, have seen all of Broadway's other offerings, need a family-friendly musical, or left your brain at home.
Don't see it if seeking deep, mental-stimulation or a show that will have you mulling Big Ideas afterward; you don't like cheesy, PG-esque fare. Pure fluff.
See it if You're a disney fan and like the movie. Great dancing (kudos to the chorus). Fabulous magical effect with the carpet ride! Romantic, sweet.
Don't see it if you don't like an fairytale come to life. Hate disney. Have issues with a show that's over-lit so it makes the sets look a little cheap.
See it if Fun, family friendly, full of dazzle and spectacle (that magic carpet!) The genie is a wonder. A delightful reminder of why we love showbiz.
Don't see it if It's a tad cheesy and yes, it's Disney. Less charming than the movie version. But it's so darn well done and infectious, just go with it!
