"Disney does not Disappoint"

This was an excellent production. The story, the costume, the set, the dancing, everything was lavish and done in Disney style. With the exception of the genie ( Major Attaway) who was outstanding, the rest of the cast ok. Some were better than others.The orchestra sounded very good, and some new songs were added which were not in the original movie. Overall its a great family activity. Good for adults as well as kids.

Great show overall, very entertaining and funny! Initially had my doubts but became better later on. Seeing Aladdin after seeing Wicked, I maybe had high expectations. Felt the main characters (Aladdin and jasmine) were ok and there were some characters that were just not good but the Genie was brilliant and kept the show entertaining. The visual effects and stage set up are some of the things to look out for. Would def come back and watch it again.

"Very good show, pricey for the seats"

The show is excellent. The story, with a bit of modern twists and relevancy, is very well acted. The musical numbers are very well performed; great talent within each role. The stage, the props, and the backgrounds are all excellent. We had mezzanine level seats. It doesn't matter if you sit in the center or left or right; but how many rows back. For the price paid, the seats were underwhelming.

Went to see Aladdin on Broadway back in March and it was one of the best shows I've seen! The tickets were really expensive, we booked in advance and had decent seats. There really is no need for such expensive ticket prices when the shows are constantly sold out every night! Some of our cast on the night were understudies (The Genie and Aladdin) but they did not disappoint, they were outstanding and so funny. The energy during the full show was amazing, my favourite scene was the flying carpet during "A Whole New World", it was beautiful! Jasmine was okay, she looked the part but her singing really wasn't as strong as some of the other cast members (sorry!). The theatre itself was absolutely freezing and we all sat with coats and jackets on which was a bit uncomfortable. The queues at the shop and for the toilets were huge which was a bit of a nightmare during the intermission. I'd definitely recommend Aladdin if you are willing to fork out the cash. Much better than the Lion King. The Genie really does steal the show!

Fantastic show. Went with our 17 and 10 year old daughters. The New Amsterdam Theatre is stunning. Air conditioning is a bit cool though. The show was very spectacular. A good old fashioned Disney song and dance show. Magic carpet scene was very convincing. The Genie and Jafar are particularly memorable, but the whole cast are good. We sat in the stalls in row F. View of the stage was superb. Highly recommend this show.
