How long have you been waiting for Disney's Aladdin to come to the West End? It's been making waves over the water on Broadway since 2014 and now it's due in Britain, fresh for a UK début in summer 2016 at the Prince Edward theatre.

Aladdin the movie gave birth to one of the most popular love songs of all time, A Whole New World. It has been played at a million weddings, covered in karaoke bars all over the planet, whistled in the streets by workmen and sung by gangs of brides-to-be on thousands of hen nights.

The song is 23 years old and as well-loved as ever. Imagine the treat, seeing it sung live on stage in all its glory, set like a star amongst a host of legendary show tunes from Alan Menken, Howard Ashman and Tim Rice. Fabulous.

There's a brand new book by Chad Beguelin of The Wedding Singer fame. The production includes three songs written for the film by Howard Ashman but not used, plus four new songs written by Menken and Beguelin, all bringing plenty of extra spice to the original well-loved score.

The costumes have to be seen to be believed, brilliantly creative. And the stage sets are reminiscent of old-school Astaire and Rogers TV musicals: magnificent, exotic, vivid and splendidly lit.

Aladdin – The story

When the young street urchin Aladdin falls head over heels with the beautiful Princess Jasmine, he has no chance of making his dreams come true. What princess, after all, marries a mere pauper? But Aladdin has a secret weapon in the shape of a magic lamp, complete with an equally magical genie to help make the boy's wishes come true. And he has a very special friend, the loyal monkey Abu.

A host of thrilling adventures ensue until, no thanks to the evil Grand Vizier Jafar, Jasmine ultimately falls in love with Aladdin and things finally work out. We'd hate to spoil the plot so we won't say any more. Suffice to say it's perfect for children of every age, loved just as much by adults for the sheer nostalgia and wonderful memories.

If you've been dying to hear songs like One Jump Ahead, Proud of Your Boy, These Palace Walls, A Million Miles Away, Diamond in the Rough and Friend Like Me, now's your chance. We predict a fast run on tickets for this long-awaited transfer, so book early.

Better than expected

Great show. My first West end play and it didn't disappoint. Although it did miss Abu. I thought the slight change to 3 thieves was good and added to the story. Much recommended

There is a variety of different styles of dancing and music and the decor, costumes and lighting are delightful in colour and combination. The story is easy to follow for children and they would enjoy it a lot.

London Box Office customer

Nice and colourful but could have been better.

The stage and lights were beautiful, the actors were good but could have been better acting, some songs could been sang better.


London Box Office customer

Good show for kids - average acting in first part

Great show for families and especially for kids. God singing throughout show in nice decor/costume. The acting is quite average during the first part -especially between Aladdin and Jasmine and during the fighting/running scene. The second part is really making the show worth it for all audiences


London Box Office customer

Had an amazing time at Aladdin! Acting music and costumes were breathtaking!!! Exceeded my expectations!


London Box Office customer

Great Night out

London Box Office customer

Magical

London Box Office customer

Troublesome

Not like the Aladdin story actually. The key elements that make Aladdin in my opinion are abu the monkey, the raven and the songs. A lot of the songs were not there, the animals neither. More a show than a Musical overall


London Box Office customer

Amazing!!

London Box Office customer

Still feels like first time show

London Box Office customer

Just brilliant

London Box Office customer

Spectacular

London Box Office customer

Genie in the musical.....stole the show

The staging and props were great. The colours of the outfits was like a carnival. Loved the cave, and the Genies entrance was surprising. Great dancing and music. My husband described the musical as a very good pantomime, as there was plenty of jokes. The Genie stole the show.... Similar to all Disney musicals I have seen, very true to the film. I would like a little twist, surprise occasionally.


London Box Office customer

Great show!

We were amazed by the overall experience this show created for us. Great decors and effects, inspiring music and play. It was pleasure.


London Box Office customer

Spectacular

Costumes and scenery amazing Genie held the show together The dialogue was rushed at times and difficult to understand which meant some of the meaning was lost Overall a very entertaining show


London Box Office customer

Entertaining

Entertaining with spectacular sets and costumes . However lack of emotion and depth. Still worth your time.


London Box Office customer

Very beautiful, a must see!

London Box Office customer

Must see!!

London Box Office customer

Worst West end show ever seen

This is by far the worst west end show i've ever seen! The leads couldn't act to save their lives apart from the Genie who was phenomenal! Aladdin and Jasmine were beyond awful, couldn't sing and the version of a whole new world is just horrendous! Don't bother, if you want to see a Disney show go see Lion King which is incredible!


London Box Office customer

Something different from conventional Disney storyline

A different twist to the conventional aladdin story. Some familiar songs and tunes, got to be open mind. No aboo the monkey tho.


London Box Office customer

Magical Night!

London Box Office customer

Creative and amazing

London Box Office customer

Genius Genie!

Fun, entertaining, great cast, a very good show!


London Box Office customer

A nice night out but not the best show ever

With memories of the 1992 Disney classic to live up to, this was going to be a tough one. The show wasn't as colourful and extravagant as we were hoping and some of the scenes actually had us yawning. The genie was by far the best part of the show and some of the scenes (the magic carpet ride) were magical, but sadly, the majority was little more than some nice dancing and singing. Not the usual west end standard. also the fake American accents were a little cringe... All in all, a nice night out but nothing to scream about!


London Box Office customer

Joyful

London Box Office customer

The Genie exists!

Superb!


London Box Office customer

great show

London Box Office customer

Cute

London Box Office customer

great night out

Wasn't looking at going to this show but couldn't get seats in a couple of other shows and thought it would be more like a pantomime, but after reading reviews we decided to go and glad we did it was great.


London Box Office customer

Amazing

The show is simply great! Genie, Aladdin, his friends were hilarious...I recommend seeing it!!!!!Not to mention the costumes and the scenography...


London Box Office customer

Overall show was good but both Aladdin and Yasmine were quite average meaning that A Whole New World was also a disappointment. Luckily Genie was excellent as were the costumes and the setting. 3.5/5


London Box Office customer

Amazing show !!

London Box Office customer

Go see just for the genie

The show was great! So much production value. The genie was the best part of the whole show, sometimes I forgot it wasn't about him.


London Box Office customer

Excellent show

London Box Office customer

Blown Away

Amazing venue, beautifully decorated inside, clean facilities. Blown Away by the bright vibrancy of the show. Loved every minute and will definitely be back. Great family show


London Box Office customer

Amazing

London Box Office customer

A colourful exciting experience I felt like I was back in Morocco with the scenery! Truly wonderful! A must see

A colourful exciting experience I felt like I was back in Morocco with the scenery! Truly wonderful! A must see show no matter the age.


London Box Office customer

Must see

London Box Office customer

Average for us

The costumes were great , but for me the show lacked punch. Apart from the Jeanie the acting was a little average Having seen the lion king 6 years ago when I was last in London I was really looking forward to a great show , but for my wife and I it just didn't hit the mark Saw stomp the night before and was really impressed but Aladdin just felt flat, the humor was average and the lead actress had a good singing voice but not great on the acting front In sure plenty of people enjoyed it especially the children but unlike stomp or the lion king there was no standing ovation from us


London Box Office customer

Amazing

London Box Office customer

lighting and set was very good the genie made the show

London Box Office customer

Must see

Acting, storyline and dancers were excellant but the scenery and effects were brilliant.

Review: ALADDIN at the Prince Edward Theatre

20 Jun 2016 in Reviews

Aladdin The Musical Packed with fun, spectacle and great songs, many of which we all know and love, Disney's stage adaptation of their animated big screen mega-hit is a joy.

Street kid Aladdin and his love interest Princess Jasmine have the perfectly toned physiques of porn stars and only face a few minor hiccups as they head towards their inevitable matrimonial happy ending. They're helped on their journey by a magic carpet, Aladdin's three bros, and especially by a show stealing genie, released from a magic lamp; all this despite the efforts of a villainous vizier and his pint sized and hyper sidekick.
