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


"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

New York Post

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


"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

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

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

Talkin' Broadway

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

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

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

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

Chicago Tribune

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


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


"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

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

USA Today

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

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

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

New Jersey Newsroom

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

Stu on Broadway

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

Disappointing, Overrated

See it if you have to in order to be happy with your life.

Don't see it if you can be happy without seeing it.

Funny, Clever, Enchanting, Indulgent, Fluffy

See it if you enjoy BIG disney action & script doesn't matter. Buyer beware: expected it to be more for kids than for adults. Humor is DEF for adults.

Don't see it if disney shtick, fluffy musicals, sappy love-stories, scenery-magic & big dance numbers do nothing for you. It's all here. Big feel-good nite.

Delightful, Romantic, Moving, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if You enjoyed the original movie, love Alan Menken, classic Disney, Adam Jacobs, beautiful staging, and want to cry at "Proud of Your Boy"

Don't see it if You find new characters and songs unnecessary, slight plot detours irksome, or you're obsessive about the animated movie's perfection

Ambitious, Overrated, Slow, Great staging, Fluffy

See it if you want to see Disney spend the big money on effects

Don't see it if you expect depth of story or characters or anything beyond the movie

Enchanting, Romantic, Disappointing, Overrated

See it if you're a Disney fan and looking for family-friendly musical.

Don't see it if you expect it to be as good as the Lion King.

Delightful, Epic, Must see, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if you enjoy big magical Broadway shows. This is textbook in spectacle, great songs, lovely story.

Don't see it if you need a lot of depth or complexity in character. No room for that here.

Cliched, Entertaining

See it if you are from out of town, love the film, have kids, and/or want a straightforward BROADWAY MUSICAL experience.

Don't see it if you're not up for presentational acting. This show glazes right over the darker corners of the story to keep the kids awake.

Disappointing, Overrated, Bad, Painful

See it if you want to see a beloved fairy tale transformed into a cheap pointless cabaret. Can't beleive Disney fell this low.

Don't see it if you don't want to see a big tasteless farce. Princess lead singing is excruiciating.

Show-score members: you're not too sophisticated to embrace this cheeky extravanganza

See it if catchy Menken tunes, clever lyrics, lush orchestra, several show-stopping scenes, the new Genie is a baller

Don't see it if sets are cheesy (Disney you can afford better!), a few weak links among actors, groundbreaking movie w/ Robin W. is funnier

Also We saw Aladdin by winning the show's lottery. Disney placed us in part... Read more Read less

Funny, Overrated, Great singing, Fluffy, Great dancing

See it if you want a fun night out with the young ones. The movie came out when I was a kid so I had an alright time, too.

Don't see it if you want to see the movie. The changes definitely make it feel very different. Also, there are better things going on, for sure, for less.

Funny, Ambitious, Clever, Enchanting, Great staging

See it if you like colour and prettiness

Don't see it if you don't care for Disney

Indulgent, Disappointing, Excruciating, Overrated, Slow

See it if You're a fan of sparkles! Costumes are really the only great thing about the show. The opening of Act 2 & A Whole New World are redeeming.

Don't see it if You were a fan of the film. This musical is very disappointing. When I wasn't asleep I was bored! I left right after A Whole New World.

Funny, Cliched, Entertaining, Fluffy

See it if must see a stage version of every show ever produced by Disney. But the carpet ride is worth it. How did they do that?

Don't see it if you want your theatre experience to have more "meat" on it.

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, Great acting, Dated, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if You like Disney shows, you like the traditional love&hero story.

Don't see it if You want to see something new. The story is predictable.

Delightful, Great staging, Fluffy, Great dancing, Old-fashioned musical, with heart

See it if You want a high-energy, fun, old-fashioned-type musical - with great production values and staging.

Don't see it if You want something edgy or challenging; this is good fun, good music, good staging in the classic formula of musical theater.

Quirky, Disappointing, Cliched, Overrated, Dated

See it if you are a big disney fan and love the story regardless of its presentation.

Don't see it if you want to see the full spectrum of what Broadway has to offer. Disappointed by the cast.

See it if You loved the movie or disney shows,the music, you want to see a fun show with kids

Don't see it if You don't like disney

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.

Don't see it if You're looking for something that reinvents the movie as excitingly or beautifully as The Lion King.
