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.
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
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 don't like Disney.
See it if you like big production numbers with lavish costumes, you liked the film, see great acting by the Genie, a good score and a magic carpet.
Don't see it if you don't like Disney musicals, feel this show is pablum, think all the dancing, costumes and special effects are just too much!!!
"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."
"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."
"This is one of the better Disney stage musicals, complete with several eye-popping production numbers"
"This super-costly extravaganza doesn't do justice to the movie, or to the spirit of the late Howard Ashman."
"It's not nearly as good as the movie, but it does have a terrific star, super-duper sets and sensational special effects."
"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."
