'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. With exhilarating choreography, show-stopping production numbers and astonishing visual effects.
"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
“What makes ‘Aladdin’ a successful stage adaptation...is 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
"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
"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
"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
"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
