Disney glitz, Masculine, Family fare, Great staging, Cardboard

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. Read more

Delightful, Enchanting, Great staging, Romantic, Entertaining

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.

Don't see it if You have a cold jaded heart and can’t fall in love with a cute shirtless boy and a princess on a magic flying carpet.

Great singing, Clever, Great staging, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if you are looking for a big, glitzsy show with many colorful sets and good mechanicals, great choreography and singing entertaining for 2 hrs

Don't see it if you do not enjoy breaking the fourth wall with unrelated comments and calls for applause. Mostly harmless but some borderline impoliteness.

Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Great staging, Funny

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.

The New York Times
March 20th, 2014

"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."

Time Out New York

"Aside from the tonic of Iglehart’s djinn, however, Aladdin is short on magic."

New York Magazine / Vulture
March 20th, 2014

"So why is Aladdin a bit of a chore? Even the best of what the writers offer doesn’t seem to stick very long; if it weren’t for Nicholaw’s merciless flogging, you feel the story would simply evaporate in the desert heat."

The Hollywood Reporter
March 20th, 2014

"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."

Entertainment Weekly
March 21st, 2014

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

Variety
March 20th, 2014

"This super-costly extravaganza doesn't do justice to the movie, or to the spirit of the late Howard Ashman."

The Wall Street Journal
March 20th, 2014

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

The Washington Post
March 20th, 2014

"This version of 'Aladdin' will doubtless keep your kiddies happy; for adults, one would like to press Iglehart in the cause of conjuring a desert kingdom of richer enchantments."
