The Broadway version of Aladdin is based on the 1992 Disney animated movie of the same name. The film was a smash hit with audiences and boasted music by Alan Menken with lyrics by Howard Ashman, Tim Rice, and Chad Beguelin, who also wrote the book. Broadway brings back the much-loved story both for people who adored the original film and also brand new audiences ready to be wowed by Aladdin’s magic all over again.
The story is familiar to most people: it’s set in Agrabah, a fictional Arabian city, and follows the story of Aladdin, who spends his days stealing food from street vendors but wants to prove he’s more than a street urchin. Meanwhile, Princess Jasmine is told by her father, the Sultan, that she must marry a prince by her birthday, which is three days away. When Aladdin is granted three wishes by Genie, after he discovers a magic lamp, he decides to use his first wish to become a prince so that he can court Jasmine. Their love story and adventures are interrupted along the way by the scheming Jafar until Aladdin reaches his third wish, which he has promised to use to free the Genie from the lamp.
The musical opened on Broadway in March 2014 and has since launched in Germany, Japan, and London. It includes crowd favorite songs such as A Whole New World, Prince Ali, and Friend Like Me, alongside songs that were cut from the film and restored to the stage production, such as Proud Of Your Boy, one of the last songs that songwriter Howard Ashman contributed before his death. Both critics and audiences have celebrated the musical as magical, exhilarating, and infectious, with extravagant staging and glittering costumes. The production has won a number of awards, including a Tony for James Monroe Iglehart, who played the Genie.
