"Disney Classic on Broadway w/ New Songs!"

If you are a fan of the original animated Aladdin film this musical will surely entertain you. All of your favorites musical numbers like Friend Like Me, A Whole New World and Arabian Nights to name a few. They added in a few new numbers some of which will be stuck in your head for days like Somebody's Got Your Back. Overall the musical is centered around the Genie so expect to see more of him than Aladdin. I saw this on Broadway 11/2016 so I was fortunate enough to see the original cast! James Monroe Iglehart as genie I think was one of the most entertaining characters in Broadway history. Of course he won a Tony for his performance in 2014! The rest of the cast was amazing and the show is more on the entertaining and comical side and less pulling of the heart strings. We sat in the balcony three rows to the top and it was still a great seat so I don't think you can go wrong. FYI, some seats have obstructed views because of poles so double checked your seats before you buy. After the show we waited outside for the cast and managed to meet Aladdin, Jasmine and the Genie! Star studded cast put on a great show for us and I will never forget it!

Having only watched one musical previously before this I went into it unsure of what to really expect, having only watched the film once many years ago aswell. But the cast did a super job of making sure you knew the story detail by detail. The song and dancing was seamless not a fault the whole performance, the set & costume changes were incredible, but the star of the show was the genie, the actor playing him added a lot of humour and nailed the part. 10/10 MUST see when in New York!
