Perez Hilton

"Everything about Aladdin is a win win WIN!" Full Review

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


"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


"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

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

USA Today

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

Reflections in the Light

"This larger-than-life, stunning visual production that sparkles on many levels really is a treat" Full Review

Catholic Transcript

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

New York Theater

"In Aladdin, the new Disney musical on Broadway, the genie grants theatergoers the first of their wishes – to be entertained." Full Review


"It may not be completely out of this world, but it will absolutely lift your spirits." Full Review

New Jersey Newsroom

"A lively and good-looking ensemble expertly undulates through the sometimes zany choreography." Full Review

New York Stage Review

“What makes ‘Aladdin’ a successful stage the clever but laid-back humor—rife with jokes and word play that defy demographic barriers...coursing through its gentle, unselfconscious critique of class and gender inequality...Leung makes a surprisingly, fetchingly boyish Aladdin...Jacobs is appropriately direct and wholesomely alluring...Attaway wisely traces the footsteps left by Iglehart...The musical is still a balm and a tonic—with perhaps a bit more punch nowadays.” Full Review


"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


"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

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


"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

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

Stu on Broadway

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


"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

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

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

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


"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

New York Post

"James Monroe Iglehart injects liveliness and humor into a merely tolerable stage adaptation of Disney’s animated hit 'Aladdin'." Full Review
