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.

Many of the singers were off key. The show lacked energy, cast seem bored, lost their zing.

Araaabiaaan niiiiights....

This was my first musical, my daughter, 9years old, chose it, cause she loves the Story. ( it means we have seen the movie a couple of times....). Still I was overwhelmed by the whole production, the story is basically the same but with some new parts and a lot of funny dialogues. The actors are terrific and very entertaining, loooved the dance parts, great choreography, excellent orchestra, wonderful colourful costumes. The stage scenery is just wonderful, and my daughter was delighted that there actually was a flying carpet !! We both loved it, our shiny colourful jewel on our Uk trip.

A very entertaining show. Good for families.

Genie steals the show

Much like many of the viewers going to see this musical, we've all seen Aladdin the Disney movie in our childhood. I was curious to see how this fantastic movie would be played on stage. The set design and costumes were dazzling and eye-catching, obviously filled with many details. And of course, the genie absolutely stole the show. He was engaging, entertaining, and brought passion to the stage. However, the other actors on stage lacked the energy and synchronization I hoped to see in an esteemed London theatre. Maybe it was an off day (it was a Monday night after all), but regardless, it was a little disappointing to see the iconic "A Whole New World" sung off key with little chemistry.


London Box Office customer

Colorfull

London Box Office customer

Great show but ...

Great show, great venue The leads were spectacular but one of the smaller actress was pretty of key. I'm sure it was just a bad day for her but it was some kind of grrr The costumes were fantastic And last but not least very funny


London Box Office customer

Aladdin magic matinee most suitable to a myriad of families and friends enjoyment

A multitude of magical colours, costumes and casts. I had a marvellous matinee show.


London Box Office customer

Good choreography and staging

The storyline and stage effects were good but I did not particularly like Aladdin's singing.


London Box Office customer

Great tome with a Jenie

Would go back for second repeat night. Great fun ! Great music and stage effects!


London Box Office customer

Amazing show but bad seating

The show was amazing at all points. The only bad point is more related to the theater as the seats are too small and we don’t have room for the legs.


London Box Office customer

General production very good, expected from Disney. Vocals not what seasoned threatre-goers will be used to, but the dancing is great. Plot wise, a bit too much focus on the genie and too many popculture jokes.

Amazing sets and costumes, but disappointing script

I was very disappointed with the script and did not enjoy the modern anecdotes added in for "humor". I would have enjoyed it more if the characters were more like the characters in the original. The sets and costumes were a true spectacle though and I enjoyed the dancing and signing.


London Box Office customer

Great experience!

London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

Amazing, funny, pure joy

Best show i've been to my whole life. Such a great actors, playing at their best. Use of humour and magic during the show was just bonus to this awesome experience. And saving the best for the end, the orchestra which escorted the entire show was flawless, such great sounds.


London Box Office customer

The BEST Musical you'll ever see!

Everything was exceptional, from the costumes, so sparkly and colorful, to the different backgrounds that were just amazing, to the musics that were so catchy and yet surprising! Needless to say, the actors were just the best, from Aladdin to his best friends, a nice new touch to the story! The GENIE.OMG, if ever they had to do all the show with just ONE character, he would be able to take it all! Amazing, never been happier!


London Box Office customer

Great Show! Genie was A-mazing!!

Amazing show, lights, costumes, tricks were fantastic! Favourite scene by far was the meeting the genie in the cave! Outstanding!!!!!

Good family entertainment ... just a big disappointment that the big feature of the show (flying carpet scene) didn’t happen due to ‘technical difficulties’ ... left us feeling a bit short changed in what was otherwise a great show.

London Box Office customer

frustrating for movie fans

I grew up watching Aladdin all the time as it was my favorite movie. I still have great affection for the movie. Maybe because of that, I found the experience overall to be quite frustrating. While the costumes and the story are still great, I did not like the way they adapted the picture to theatre (they should absolutely not have gotten rid of the animals!) What's more, the new original songs were pretty boring and the London cast overall was simply unimpressive. The one exception is the actor who plays the Genie - he was outstanding!


London Box Office customer

Amazing show!!

Loved the effects , lighting production, everything!! It was exceptional !!!


London Box Office customer

Spectecular

London Box Office customer

Lovely theatre with clever, comfortable seating. Not a Disney or musical fan but took partner who is and thoroughly enjoyed the spectacle. Genie was exceptional and the whole show encaptured the spirit of any Disney film. It's a must see!

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.
