Aladdin is exactly what you wish for!
NBC New YorkBuy Tickets
Following in the footsteps of Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King, Aladdin is the latest Broadway spectacular from Disney. Packed with romance, adventure and the Genie's hilarious slapstick humor, this unforgettable show features all of the movies' Academy Award-winning music, including 'A Whole New World', 'Friend Like Me' and 'Arabian Nights', as well as some brand new numbers.
A lushly costumed and vibrantly choreographed affair, Aladdin was nominated for five Tony Awards when it premiered on Broadway in 2014, picking up one win for James Monroe Iglehart's portrayal of the Genie. With direction from Tony winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon), Aladdin is a sure fire hit for all ages, whether you've seen the movie or not!
Plucky street urchin Aladdin's life is transformed forever when he ventures into the cave of Wonders and discovers a magic lamp. Out pops a manic Genie, who has the power to grant Aladdin three wishes. Aladdin's first wish is to be made into a prince, mainly so he can impress the city's beautiful Princess Jasmine, who he's sure could never love a pauper. But as love begins to blossom between Aladdin and Jasmine, there's trouble on the horizon. The nefarious statesman Jafar knows all about Aladdin's real identity and the power of the lamp, and is determined to secure the Genie's magic for himself!
While this musical is based on the movie, it also includes some characters from the film's early drafts who were ultimately left out of the final cut, including Aladdin's three sidekicks Babkak, Omar and Kassim.
