Several of the classic Disney films have already been created into successful and stunning Broadway musicals by Disney Theatrical. The latest Disney story to get the Broadway treatment is the well-known story of Aladdin.

Aladdin is currently previewing at the Ed Mirvish Theatre in Toronto until January 5, 2014. From there, the production will head to Broadway’s New Amsterdam Theatre starting on February 26, 2014.

The show stars Adam Jacobs as Aladdin, Courtney Reed as Jasmine, James Monroe Iglehart as the Genie, and Jonathan Freeman as Jafar. Interesting fact for the day, Freeman actually voiced Jafar in the original 1992 animated film!

The creative team behind this show includes Tony-winning director and choreographer Casey Nicholaw, with sets done by Bob Crowley, costumes by Gregg Barnes, and lighting by Natasha Katz. Plus, bookwriter Chad Beguelin and Alan Menken have composed new songs for the score, which includes “A Whole New World” and “Friend Like Me.”
