Aladdin 1New Amsterdam Theatre
214 W 42nd St, New York, NY
When Disney puts their heart into something (and a lot of cash), it definitely has a good shot at being excellent. Aladdin brings out the greatest characters of the film, specifically Iago and Genie, and turns it into a fun and accessible show for parents and kids alike. The costumes, choreography are especially fantastic and it was an excellent choice for Disney to decide on Book of Mormon director, Casey Nicholaw, to lead such a fun and exciting show. A special note is that Jonathan Freeman, who was the original voice of Jafar in the 1992 film, reprises his role to deviously expectations and is a delight to watch. This is a Disney musical worth seeing whether or not you have kids.
