Aladdin The Musical

Aladdin The Musical

Aladdin The Musical

The National Autistic Society arranged a relaxed performance for Aladdin The Musical.
It had been booked since we went to see Mama Mia –link
Travelling was a nightmare due to works on the Waterloo line so we had to get the bus,
 
six in total there and back I would say it took over an hour.
 
It’s always a great feeling to see the theatre lit up with the current performance being shown,
 
I did a little theatre spotting for fun and as they are near
 
Aladdin The Musical shown at Prince Edward Theatre
 
based on the classic animated film that brings Trevor Dion Nicholas as the genie
 
In this whole new world rendition of the Disney animated film 1992
Aladdin The Musical
opened on Broadway in March 2014

Aladdin The Musical

The show is approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes,

 
including a 20-minute interval. providing the fire alarm doesn’t go off and having to be evacuated,
 
yes, it was an accident and nothing serious kk was finding it hard to keep calm
 
along with other people in the auditorium. Yet,
that being said I have to say how great the theatre team and
 
NAS along with the Disney store team handled it
 
thank you for keeping us safe!
 
As always the main cast comes out on stage to introduce themselves
to there character names The stage props were very eye catching and true
 
Agraba sandstone buildings with orange hues.
The costumes were bedazzling and Princess worthy.

Aladdin The Musical Review

I would have liked to if seen Jasmine played by Jade Ewen,
 
being sassier in her role, how it’s portrayed in the film you wouldn’t really mess with her.
Aladdin played by Matthew Croke was a sweet character,
 
and showed good choreography skills building climbing and jumping.
 
Jafar, as played by Don Gallagher, fair played the character.
 
could even have been a bit darker in his look and speech but this was a good character role.
 
But, I have to say although I enjoyed watching Aladdin The Musical
 
I was disappointed that Abu and Raja weren’t included,

what’s Aladdin without them?

 
That saddened me, but I did enjoy The magic Carpet scene.
 
brought Aladdin The Musical to life.
 
being A stickler for original cast or as close replication as possible,
 
Robin Williams was the full centre for me in Aladdin
he put so much energy into his roles
 and Genie was a massive role for him,
 
growing up him as one of my Idols I wasn’t sure if anyone could be any better.
So what did of Trevor Dion Nicholas’ character portrayal of Genie,
 
he was fun bubbly and passionate about his role.

4-out-of-5-stars-rating

Overall I enjoyed watching Aladdin The Musical it’s definitely a must-see.

But for me, Abu and Rajah were missing.

so 4/5 from me

    I’m dying to see this! Love the music and the plot. Shame about the animals but I guess that would be quite tricky to do well on stage!

    Shame your favourite characters were missing but 4/5 isn’t too bad I’d say. Not something I’d ever have considered seeing on stage either. daren’t mention it to my girls, they’ll want to go tomorrow!

    That sounds amazing! Relaxed performances are so important. It is really stressful taking a disabled child to the theatre.

    I am planning to go next month so this review was perfect timing! So glad you enjoyed (for the most part) the show, you’re right about no animals- they do it so well for the Lion King!

    Sounds like a good show, shame about the fire alarm going off !!

    I’ve seen The Lion King but I’m not sure how you’d fit ‘animal’ and human actors together that well, it still sounds like something my kids would really enjoy though.

    Sounds like a wonderful performance! I still have yet to see this show but have heard great things. Glad you enjoyed it and hope the fire alarm wasn’t too disruptive to your time x
