I've seen my share of theoretical performances but nothing has ever awed me like Aladdin! It includes all your favorite songs from the movie plus new songs to love. The costumes and choreography are mesmerizing, the sets are phenomenal, and the genie is hilarious! It is a great time for everyone!

On 07.11.18, I and my group of 15 people went to watch the play ALADDIN and we were very mistreated by the porter of the theater (tall Mr., gray hair wearing light gray suit), pushed us, made threats !!! I am a tour operator and he made my passengers feel stressed and even cry! I request URGENT PROVISIONS !!!

When you are planning a trip to New York and are speaking to people about things to do/ cover, you will most likely hear from them on seeing a broadway show. There are plenty to choose from, and my cousin insisted if its one I plan to attend, Aladdin should be the one and may be then Lion King. I chose Aladdin and right from raising of the curtains through to the end of the performance, the entire musical show was an exhilarating experience. The artists & the energy they play, the costumes & colors, the decor and the musical tracks is a definite must watch and a to-do list item. The aura too is special here, the theater, the people (most of them are dressed well). A show for all ages. Yes, this is expensive but if one has not witnessed a live musical performance, would suggest experiencing it. Advisable to book tickets well in advance to get a good seat. Hope you enjoy it! :)

My husband & I saw this show & really loved it. We didn’t have our children with us & were looking for a show that was fun & light. The Genie was fabulous & completely made the show! I’d see it again just for him! Fun, wonderful music, great costumes - overall good time!
