I attended Aladdin - The Musical at Hollywood Pantages this Saturday 3/17/2018. Theater was full and the show was pretty nice. Aladdin the stage musical definitely put enthusiasm and joy to the audience (including me) and provided for quality family-friendly Broadway entertainment. The best part in my humble opinion was when the Genie came out and he was definitely the spirit of the entire show. Highly recommended!

A friend of mine came to visit and wanted to see this, so I went with her not having any real expectations and I am so pleased I did! The genie steals the show with his humor and his interactions with the audience. We had the understudy for Aladdin, but he was fun and a strong singer. The visuals for the Cave of Wonders and a Whole New World were wonderful. Anyone of any age can see this and have a great time.

I was expecting so much from this musical but I nearly fell asleep - I thought it was me but then I saw others falling asleep too! The singing is not great - felt very amateurish- the are not much effects except the carpet. Even the genie just came from the floor.the genie was good and was the only person who made it funny. The outfits colourful and glamorous but so so so boring

I'm not generally a musical goer, but I'm a fan of Aladdin and was keen to see a Broadway show. About half of the numbers aren't original songs from the movie, which I could have done without to be honest. However the rest of the show I really enjoyed, so if you're just looking for a fun Broadway show I think it's a good option. We had the cheapest seats too (balcony left side), but they were totally fine!
