About the show

Casey Nicholaw’s smash-hit spectacular Aladdin flew into the Prince Edward Theatre, after becoming one of the hottest tickets on Broadway. Bringing the bright and vibrant Arabian Nights to life, Disney introduces yet another popular stage adaptation to the West End, following the hugely successful The Lion King. Nominated for a staggering five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Aladdin promises to be an entirely magical musical.

Based on the tale from 1001 Arabian Nights and adapted by Chad Beguelin (Elf the Musical), Aladdin tells the story of a young and hopeful street urchin who steals to live. When he stumbles across a magic lamp and the even more magic Genie inside it, he has the opportunity to make all of his dreams come true. After he meets and falls in love with the beautiful Princess Jasmine, Aladdin is determined to win her heart, with a little help from the very generous Genie.

Matthew Croke (Annie Get Your Gun, Singing In The Rain) leads the cast as Aladdin, alongside Jade Ewen as Princess Jasmine (In the Heights) and Trevor Dion Nicholas as the Genie. Further cast members include Fred Johanson (Jesus Christ Superstar) as Jafar, Jermaine Woods as Iago, Irvine Iqbal (Bombay Dreams) as the Sultan, Leon Craig as Babkak, Daniel de Bourg as Kassim and Julian Capolei as Omar.

Further casting includes Koko Basigara, Robertina Bonano, Danny Becker, Angeline Bell, Bianca Cordice, Abigail Climer, Nolan Edwards, Melanie Elizabeth, Nordine Ezzahr, Antony Hewitt, Blythe Jandoo, Abigail Johnson, Travis Kerry, Dann Kharsa, Victoria Layzell, Mitch Leow, Oliver Lidert, Phil Mennell, Richard Murphy, Ian Oswald, Tarisha Rommick, Kyle Seeley, Dominic Sibanda, Ricardo Spriggs, Joshua Steel, Kevin Stephen-Jones, Kayleigh Thandani, Justin Thomas, Damien Winchester and Niko Wirachman.

With wonderfully memorable music by eight-time Academy Award winner and Disney maestro Alan Menken and lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, Aladdin includes many of the original songs from the 1992 film. Popular songs include "One Jump Ahead", "Friend Like Me", "Prince Ali" and the Oscar and Grammy Award-winning "A Whole New World".

Songs that were cut from the animation, such as ‘Proud of Your Boy’ feature in this new, dazzling musical, alongside some entirely new songs that will delight and entertain even the most adamant Aladdin fans. The production features design by six-time Tony Award-winning Bob Crowley, lighting design by Natasha Katz, sound by Ken Travis and costume by Gregg Barnes. Aladdin is one of the best musicals in the West End right now, so don't miss out and get your tickets now.

Loved the show. Incredible costumes and set. The magic carpet ride was mind blowing. If it comes back to London I'd see it again.
