The producers of The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast and Newsies have brought the beloved story of Aladdin to thrilling theatrical life in this bold new musical comedy that The Huffington Post calls, "One of the most delirious things of its kind in years!" Filled with daring adventure, classic comedy and timeless romance, ALADDIN is "fabulous" and "extravagant," says The New York Times.
ALADDIN features all your favorite songs from the film as well as new music written by Tony and Academy Award winner Alan Menken (Newsies) with lyrics penned by the legendary Howard Ashman (Beauty and the Beast), and Tony Award winner Tim Rice (The Lion King, Aida). Hailed by Newsday as "an awesome throwback to old-time musical comedy," it is directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon), with book and additional lyrics by Chad Beguelin (The Wedding Singer). ALADDIN also boasts an incomparable design team, with sets, costumes and lighting from Tony Award winners Bob Crowley (Mary Poppins), Greg Barnes (The Drowsy Chaperone), and Natasha Katz (Once).
With exhilarating choreography, show-stopping performances and astonishing visual effects, ALADDIN is, as NBC-TV declares, "Exactly what you wished for!"
