"Aladdin on Broadway"

Aladdin was a great show! The Amsterdam theatre is truly spectacular and usually the Mezzanine provides great views of the show, but I was seated behind a man with a very large head so I spent the evening with a neck sore trying to watch the performance. The seats are quite squishy and uncomfortable. Otherwise the show deviated only slightly from the story line, but provided a lot of laughter, good costume and set scenes, and was very entertaining!

Aladdin was even better than expected. The theatre is extremely ornately decorated. The show was very lively and entertaining. The genie was hilarious, and the dancers were all so talented in their roles. They quickly changed costumes and appeared in multiple roles doing all different types of choreographed dancing and singing. This was the perfect musical to take my 6 year old son to for his first Broadway show. The magic carpet ride scene was truly magical.

Words can't describe how amazing the play, setting and stage are! Some comments though is that the music is a bit off sometimes but they still did a great job. Many parts have nice humour for the adults too. ____ My only comment is where did Abu & Lago go! They could have made something like the Lion King (a kid playing them or something). There is also a bit of deviation from the story.
