It’s a whole new world for Disney’s Aladdin, as the shows flies onto the Broadway stage with spectacular special effects and new songs, as well as classic tunes.
This full-length stage version will feature the songs you love (“A Whole New World,” “Arabian Nights,” “Friend Like Me,” “One Jump Ahead,” and “Prince Ali”), plus additional numbers written especially for this production. Music will be by Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast) with lyrics by the late Howard Ashman, Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita) and Chad Beguelin (Elf, The Wedding Singer) who will also write the book. Tony winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon, The Drowsy Chaperone) directs and choreographs.
Aladdin (Adam Jacobs) is a penniless street urchin who falls in love with Princess Jasmine (Courtney Reed) and rescues her from the villainous Jafar (Jonathan Freeman) after discovering a magic lamp containing a mischievous Genie (James Monroe Iglehart). The New Amsterdam Theater has been renovated to accommodate the mystical visual-effects miracles conjured up by the genie. Adults, kids and everyone in between will be astonished and amazed by this spectacular show.
