Why See Aladdin?
First Ever North american tour
Hop onto a magic carpet with Disney's smash hit Broadway musical, which heads out across for its first ever North American tour. Based on the beloved animated movie, it's the wondrous tale of lovable urchin Aladdin, the evil Jafar and the beautiful Princess Jasmine. Oh, and the larger than life Genie as well of course! It includes all the songs from the movie ('A Friend Like Me', 'A Whole New World'), alongside specially written new numbers by musical maestros Alan Menken and Chad Beguelin.
The Broadway production opened in 2014, and was greeted with enthusiastic reviews and five Tony nominations. Spectacular fun for all the family, the show has launched international productions in Japan, Germany and the UK, but this is the first time it's played outside of New York in America.
WHAT IS ALADDIN ABOUT?
Aladdin is a charming street urchin in Agrabah, who, when 'exploring' the mysterious Cave of Wonders, uncovers an ancient lamp that proves to be more than just a lighting solution. He unwittingly frees the lamp's resident wacky Genie, who grants him three wishes. Transformed from pauper to Prince, Aladdin catches the eye of beautiful but bored Princess Jasmine, who longs for some adventure of her own!
But it's not all a smooth magic carpet ride, because Aladdin isn't the only one that knows of the lamp's power. Enter the nefarious Jafar and his minions, who have plans for three wishes of their own and it's up to Aladdin to defeat him to keep the Kingdom from his clutches.
Opening night: 13 June 2018
