The Telegraph (UK)
December 4th, 2023

“For yonks, the Hackney panto script was expertly rustled up by Susie McKenna. Will Brenton undertakes the task now, maximising storytelling intelligibility, inoffensive comedy and basic silliness...Much needed mindless fun.”

“Cleo Pettitt has again created a stage of wonders with fantastic sets and fabulous costumes...and it’s a sign of just how much care and attention has gone into ensuring ‘Aladdin’ and this year’s Hackney Empire production maintains its reputation as the must-see panto of the year.”

“One of the warmer aspects of this story is Aladdin’s burgeoning love for Jazz, played with effortless charm and steely determination by Isabella Mason...This is joyous, big-hearted panto.”

“This is a pantomime with real heart and a winning innocence, and if it wouldn’t be half the show it is without Rowe’s ebullient warmth and absolute commitment to his craft, let’s use it as an opportunity to treasure him and protect him at all cost.”

All That Dazzles (UK)
December 4th, 2023

“It’s a bit safe and the music selection not as mainstream as it could be, but it’s genuinely funny and delivers perfectly on expectations for a festive family trip to the theatre...The audience will lap up this production of ‘Aladdin’; and why shouldn’t they? It’s an awful lot of fun.”
