My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed this show. We had 2nd row seats which may have been a bit close to appreciate all of the staging but was so awesome to be so close to the performers. There are some new songs so you don't feel like you are just watching a live version of the movie. The majority of the singers were sooooo good. The magic carpet scene is sooo beautifully done. The theatre itself is beautiful & the ushers are very helpful & informative. HIGHLY recommend. Enjoy!

This was one of the best shows I've seen. The costumes and colors were amazing! The genie was fabulous! We were able to get a really good price on the tickets the day of the show. The magic carpet was the best part! Would see again if I had the chance.

I went to see this show last week and was not disappointed. The stage adaption of this classic Disney movie has some amendments to the story of the film and add a couple of great characters. The production asks a lot of its stars as they are required to sing, dance, fight and amuse. The comedy is spot on and I found myself laughing out loud on many occasions, so much so it almost borders on pantomime-esque at times. The Genie is the star and Jafar and Iago were a close runner up, one of Aladdin's pals was also head and shoulders above the others but sadly I forgot his name. There are some amazing stage effects and a couple of times I found myself trying to work out how they had done something. No spoilers here but I was a little disappointed with the closing scenes of the film as they felt like they were really cut short from the film. Also I know this is covered in other reviews (which I have only read since seeing the show) but the lady portraying Jasmine really seemed to lack presence and her singing was average at best but fortunately this didn't detract from the overall show, I thought this might have just been an 'off night' but looking at other reviews this doesn't seem to be the case.

This was my boys (ages 10-12) first experience with a Broadway show (in NYC) and we weren't disappointed. Genie and Aladdin were just spectacular and quite funny! We are still quoting lines from the show and singing the songs! Several of us actually liked this show over Wicked. Jasmine was the weakest part of the show but didn't affect the overall outcome.

I recently read other reviews of Aladdin and was surprised to learn that many did not like the performance of Jasmine. I assumed that these people attend the theater regularly and have very high expectations. She was casted on a New York Broadway show after all, so I'm sure it can't be that bad I thought.... I was wrong. I was so shocked to see this terrible casting. She cannot sing and I would cringe during her songs. I was so truly disappointed during the Whole New World scene (this is my favorite Disney song) and it was ruined. The only redeeming grace was the Genie. He was awesome and saved the show. I would still spend your money elsewhere before attending this show.
