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."

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

"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 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."

New York Daily News
March 20th, 2014

"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."

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

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."

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."
