Fans of the movie will recognize songs like “Arabian Nights” and “Prince Ali” — and of course “A Whole New World,” complete with magic carpet ride. Kids and adults alike will love the energetic staging and performances, including the Genie who wows the crowd with the non-stop number “Friend Like Me.” Adam Jacobs stars as Aladdin, the penniless street urchin who is full of heart, and Courtney Reed stars as Jasmine, the reluctant princess who wants to forge her own path.

Aladdin opens tonight at the New Amsterdam Theatre at 214 42nd St. Get tickets!
