Disney's Aladdin

Prince Edward Theatre

Theatre Tickets

Synopsis

Audiences at the Prince Edward Theatre in London’s West End now have the chance to witness the Broadway show Aladdin as it opens in Theatreland in 2016. The adaptation of the animated Disney hit takes the story and characters that won over audiences back in 1992 and introduces them to a new generation of theatregoers.

So characters like Aladdin, Genie, Princess Jasmine and Jafar will be brought to life onstage, with performers such as Trevor Dion Nicholas (Genie) amongst those headed to the West End. Songs like A Whole New World will also be performed and crowds will remember how this became such a big success story as a film and as a Broadway musical.

Aladdin introduces us to the ‘street urchin’ character of the title. He is poor and relies on steeling to feed himself, but when he finds the Genie inside a magic lamp all of this changes. He uses one of his three wishes to help him to win the affections of Princess Jasmine, the daughter of the Sultan, but his acts draw attention to himself and soon he must face the horrors of evil sorcerer Jafar.

Musical numbers along the way include the mentioned song A Whole New World, as well as Prince Ali, Arabian Nights and Friend Like Me, amongst others.

This is the latest in a long line of Disney hits to be turned into a stage musical. Audiences can still catch The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre, but other hits have included Beauty And The Beast and, on Broadway, The Little Mermaid.

But now it is the turn of Aladdin and the show heads to the Prince Edward Theatre in London’s West End.
