Enchanting, Delightful, Great staging, Fun, Entertaining

See it if Fun, family friendly, full of dazzle and spectacle (that magic carpet!) The genie is a wonder. A delightful reminder of why we love showbiz.

Don’t see it if It's a tad cheesy and yes, it's Disney. Less charming than the movie version. But it's so darn well done and infectious, just go with it!

Entertaining, Delightful, Great staging, Fluffy

See it if You're a disney fan and like the movie. Great dancing (kudos to the chorus). Fabulous magical effect with the carpet ride! Romantic, sweet.

Don’t see it if you don't like an fairytale come to life. Hate disney. Have issues with a show that's over-lit so it makes the sets look a little cheap.

More information about Aladdin on Broadway

A whole new world landed in New York in 2014, when the Aladdin Broadway show flew into the New Amsterdam Theatre. Get Aladdin tickets on TodayTix.

Based on the 1992 Disney animated film of the same name, the Tony Award-nominated Best Musical follows the title street urchin as he journeys to the Cave of Wonders, where he discovers a magical lamp that changes his life forever.

After unleashing a friendly and funny Genie who will grant him three wishes, Aladdin transforms into royalty to win the heart of Princess Jasmine. The only thing standing in his way is the Sultan’s villainous Grand Vizier, Jafar, who will stop at nothing to steal the lamp and take the throne.

Aladdin is directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw. Aladdin brings audiences on an enchanting adventure to the deserts of Agrabah, complete with high-flying carpet rides and a toe-tapping Genie that will have you wishing for more. So if you want to find "A Whole New World" on stage, you'll enjoy Aladdin on Broadway.

What to watch for

  • In Aladdin, there are 337 costumes that are worn throughout the musical. Did you know that all the costumes in Aladdin were custom-made by hand? In the Genie’s musical number “Friend Like Me,” there are 1,428 Swarovski crystals on a pair of men’s pants.
  • James Monroe Iglehart, who originated the role of the Genie in the stage production, took home the Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical. Aladdin was nominated for five Tony Awards in total.
  • Jonathan Freeman, who voiced the villainous Jafar in the 1992 film, reprised his performance on stage in the original cast of the musical.
  • Don’t expect Aladdin’s monkey sidekick, Abu, to make an appearance, though; there are no monkeys in Aladdin. In the stage adaptation, Aladdin has a trio of friends named Omar, Babkak, and Kassim instead.
  • Aladdin tickets are suitable for children aged 6 and over.
