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
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.
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.
