An Enchanting Story
The story of Aladdin is based on a Middle Eastern folktale. It is one of the most widely known tales in The Book of One Thousand and One Nights (The Arabian Nights).
Aladdin tells the story of Princess Jasmine, who lives in the town of Agrabah and is pressured to marry a member of royalty, rather than marry for love. Jafar, who works closely with the Sultan, is plotting to overthrow him. Jasmine sneaks out of the palace and meets Aladdin, a street urchin.
Aladdin receives a death sentence after the pair are found together. Jafar instructs Aladdin to retrieve a lamp from a cave, and Aladdin accidentally releases the genie who lives inside. Aladdin then assumes a new identity as Prince Ali.
Aladdin on Broadway show has received rave reviews from both critics and fans because of its thrilling musical numbers, elaborate costumes, stunning sets, and dazzling special effects. Broadway performances of Aladdin include a spectacular flying magic carpet. The music for Aladdin was written by Alan Menken, an 8-time Oscar winner.
The show at the New Amsterdam Theatre draws upon the 1992 Disney animated version of the story, but the Broadway show deviates from the Disney film in some notable ways. For instance, in the Broadway version of Aladdin, the character of the Genie is based on Cab Calloway and Fats Waller, two jazz legends – still, it’s a magical experience not to be missed! The Broadway production also includes seven new songs that were not included in the animated film.
