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

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

Variety

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

Time Out New York

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

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

75
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

Talkin' Broadway

"Everything else in Aladdin is, like the endlessly expansive desert in which it's set, dusty and unwelcoming." Full Review

70
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

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

55
New York Magazine / Vulture

"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." Full Review

60
New York Daily News

"The show is as colorful as the Crayola 64 box, and as tirelessly energetic as a toddler, but it also feels canned. While burning through wishes, you should ask for the musical to have a lot more heart. The absence is glaring, given that Disney excels at tugging at tickers and then making them melt." Full Review

75
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

Chicago Tribune

"Much of the show just skedaddles along, hitting the plot points without enough oomph." Full Review

NorthJersey.com

"The show is a flavorless rehash of what's been done much better before." Full Review

CitiTour

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

USA Today

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

45
The Washington Post

"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." Full Review

75
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

Reflections in the Light

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

Time Magazine

"Aladdin is frisky and fun, another demonstration of Disney professionalism." Full Review

80
New Jersey Newsroom

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

55
Stage Opinion

"This big, busy, splashy family entertainment fits right in; it feels a bit generic, but it certainly delivers in terms of sheer eye-popping spectacle, and is sure to run and run." Full Review

Stu on Broadway

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

Slow, Fluffy

See it if you're a fan of the movie and want to see it replicated on stage without much innovation

Don't see it if you're expecting glorious stagecraft (it looks oddly cheap) or want an adaptation that adds anything to the original.

Funny, Clever, Great acting, Disappointing, Fluffy

See it if You can't get tickets to The Lion King. This is a middling Disney musical. Not the best they've done by any stretch, but still enjoyable.

See it if you enjoy musical comedy, good performances, lavish sets & production numbers, & a jokey vibe. Disney is making jokes at its' own expense.

Don't see it if you want a musical with dramatic plot. This isn't Falsettos nor meant to be. Good for kids of all ages. Older folks will get jokes kids dont
