If pure fun and laughter are what you are looking for out of a Broadway musical, then this is the musical to go and see! My wife and I recently flew our daughter out to NYC to experience a couple of Broadway musicals. She is a huge Disney fan, so she picked Aladdin and The Lion King. (will review the ladder as well in a separate review) Aladdin was simply amazing. In my opinion, a must see whether you are taking kids or not. I have been to several Broadway shows but this one was just pure fun and laughter throughout. As with most Disney Broadway shows, the casting for each of the roles was perfect. As you may imagine, it was the genie that stole the show! Like Robin Williams performance in the animated film, this version of the Genie was a comedic genius! More impressively, he captures Williams spirit while also injecting his own style and personality into this beloved character. The show is also pretty fast moving. The storyline moves along at a great pace and I never found myself feeling bored because of the pace of the show. So from Aladdin to the Princess to Jafaar, all of the performers nailed their characters in a way that stayed true to everything you love about their animated Disney counterparts, while simultaneously leaving their own indelible impression. In closing, if FUN, FUN, FUN is what you are seeking out of your Broadway musical experience then go see Aladdin.

Fabulous to watch though....

If you're a fan of Disney or musicals, this is a must. It was a little childish at times, but the acting was stellar, particularly the Genie. The normal Aladdin was on tour so I believe the understudy stepped in, he did a decent job, I was very impressed, enjoyed it a lot and got a few souvenirs to boot!

We took our 6 yr old to the show and she loved it. What I enjoyed was watching from a higher elevation and seeing the shoe but also the technical workings. One thing I still can’t figure out how the carpet flies and some things are best unknown.
