Disney bring their 1992 movie classic to life in this fantastical new musical, which features the same unforgettable music as the film - created by Academy and Tony Award-winning composer Alan Menken and lyricists Howard Ashman, Tim Rice and Chad Beguelin - as well as some brand new numbers!
This brand new production was nominated for an impressive five Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score! With direction and choreography from Tony-winner Casey Nicholaw, Aladdin is guaranteed to be a vibrant and fabulous stage spectacular that audiences of all ages will love!
Aladdin (Adam Jacobs) is a charming street urchin in Agrabah, who, when 'exploring' the mysterious Cave of Wonders uncovers an ancient lamp that proves it's more than just a lighting solution. Unwittingly freeing the lamp's resident wacky Genie, (played to perfection by James Monroe Iglehart, winning him the 2014 Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical) who grants him three wishes. Transformed from pauper to Prince, he catches the eye of beautiful but bored Princess Jasmine (Courtney Reed), who longs for some adventure of her own!
But it's not all a smooth magic carpet ride, because Aladdin isn't the only one that knows of the lamp's power. Enter the nefarious Jafar and his minions, who have plans for three wishes of their own and it's up to Aladdin to defeat him keep the Kingdom from his clutches.
Playing the role of the Genie - Aladdin's magical friend with razor-sharp wit and a larger-than-life personality - is "literally a dream come true" for the James Monroe Iglehart, who won a Tony Award for his role.
