Aladdin on Broadway Information

Aladdin on Broadway takes audiences to a whole new world. Get Aladdin tickets now and experience the magic and wonder of this timeless Disney story that's granted audience's wishes for fun since 2014.

Based on the much-loved 1992 animated classic, the Aladdin musical follows the title street urchin as he tries to win over Princess Jasmine. Though she loves him too, royal rules state that she must marry a prince. Aladdin becomes one with the help of a wish-granting Genie in a magic lamp, but before he and Jasmine can be together, he must defeat the evil Jafar, who wants Jasmine and the throne for himself.

The Aladdin movie is one of the cornerstones of what would become known as the Disney Renaissance Era, a period of time which restored Disney's animation division to its former glory of creating successful animated musicals.

Aladdin on Broadway officially opened in 2014 at the New Amsterdam Theatre, the home base of Disney on Broadway that has also housed musicals like Mary Poppins and The Lion King (before that show moved to the Minskoff). The production was nominated for five Tony Awards including Best Musical.

Aladdin features a score by Alan Menken, incorporating the movie's music including "Arabian Nights," "Prince Ali," and the show-stopping "Friend Like Me." There's also new material as well as songs that were cut from the film, such as Aladdin's poignant ballad "Proud of Your Boy."

The Aladdin Broadway production also incorporates a dazzling total of 84 illusions and effects, with the awe-inspiring magic carpet ride during "A Whole New World" arguably its crowning jewel. The spectacle also showcases 337 unique costumes and dynamic choreography, brimming with modern dance, tap, and Middle Eastern-infused influences, under the helm of Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw.

Who plays the Genie in Aladdin the musical?

Michael James Scott currently plays the Genie in the Aladdin musical. Original cast member James Monroe Iglehart won the Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Musical for his crowd-pleasing, unstoppable performance in the role.

Other original cast members included Adam Jacobs in the title role, Courtney Reed as Princess Jasmine, and Jonathan Freeman as Jafar, reprising his role from the animated film.

How long is Aladdin on Broadway?

Aladdin on Broadway is 2 hours and 45 minutes, including an intermission.

Disney's Aladdin is a theatrical explosion that tells a universal story of love triumphing against all odds and is a bonafide Broadway hit suitable for all generations.

Our review

In the UK, there is a Christmas tradition in British theatre called Pantomime. This phenomenon is foreign to American audiences, and is perhaps difficult to sell convincingly, but here goes: A pantomime takes the form of a tongue-in-cheek staging of a popular fairy tale, which encourages as much audience participation as possible. There is always a man dressed up as a ludicrous-looking woman known as the Dame (in the case of 'Aladdin' it's Widow Twanky), often a girl will play the lead male role...
