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.

Must see!!!

London Box Office customer

There was a young Chinese girl who didn't speak English with her Dad behind us and they both talked throughout the whole show. At times it seemed like he was translating or explaining the story.


London Box Office customer

Set was absolutely fantastic

London Box Office customer

Amazing show

Very strong performers across the entire cast. Seats were perfect and felt as if we were immersed in the magic carpet scene. Highly recommended, well choreographed, and performed making it a truly memorable show.


London Box Office customer

A bold and bright spectacular!

I really loved this retelling of Disney's Aladdin. The additional characters added comic relief and the usual suspects were very good. Trevor Dion Nicholas was an absolute legend, bringing Robin Williams cheeky charm to the genie. I would be delighted to see this again!


London Box Office customer

Great sets, pity about the singing and acting

In a nutshell, we paid £123 for average seats and we were so so disappointed by a sub-standard show, which rides on the success of an excellent Disney animation film! The genie was excellent and the Jafar was great, but on the whole a very poor show, way below West End standards. Actors playing Aladdin and Jasmine were seriously disappointing. Apart from the genie, and one or two other characters, the singing was off key and poor and acting was only passable. One scene with Jasmine and her ladies in waiting, we couldn't understand a word they were singing. Also, the show was seriously over-Americanised and hardly tailored for the British audience. On the plus side, sets were brilliant.


London Box Office customer

Great family fun

Great show for all the family.


London Box Office customer

Background is 10/10

I like the background especially the Genie's Cave scene is superb stunning!


London Box Office customer

Great fun!

London Box Office customer

Very colourful

The genie is brilliant! And the magic carpet is a highlight.


London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

Brilliant casting

London Box Office customer

wow!!!!!

London Box Office customer

Good alround show

Ending felt rushed and not at all powerful, filler story songs (lyrics) were basic compared to power performances of known songs. Also having technical difficulties delay the show mid performance is understandably out of someoneones control, but show is not just a month old.


London Box Office customer

Everything I hoped for

The costumes were incredible as well as the magic carpet ride.


London Box Office customer

Such a spectacle!

London Box Office customer

Magical

Beautiful colourful show stolen by the genie! Made me smile from beginning to end. Highly recommend this show for all ages.

Enjoyable evening

The genie at our performance was 10 out of 10 he brought the show to life


London Box Office customer

Better than I expected!

The set, costumes, choreography, music, story line, and jokes were all on point. It was enjoyable to watch. I enjoyed the twist in parts of the story.I would definitely go see it again!


London Box Office customer

wonderful spectacular show

the show was marvellous -full of colour, special effects and great sets. We went as a family group and it exceeded the expectations of us all aged 5- 60 years old


London Box Office customer

Genie stole the show

I did wonder how they would take a Disney classic from the screen to the stage and I have to say they didn't disappoint. Whilst it felt like a panto in places, it was a great production and some of the songs were out of this world. The singing was a little quiet in places but overall a fantastic evening and money well spent...


London Box Office customer

Best musical ever

London Box Office customer

Colourful, Comedic and Creative

It was a really fun show. Enjoyed it very much. The actor who played the Genie done Robin Williams proud.


London Box Office customer

Costumes were AMAZING

London Box Office customer

Nice but not great

London Box Office customer

Not to be missed!

London Box Office customer

An amazing evening

I arranged to pick my tickets up from the box office and the process was so smooth. Our seats were perfect. The performance was amazing.


London Box Office customer

Worth the money

Genie made the show exciting. The dancing was spectacular, the dialogue okay for the most part. Seats in the centre down the front are the best.


London Box Office customer

Expected more

London Box Office customer

Spectacular sparkle at the West end!

As a life long disney fanatic I surprised my best friend with tickets to see the show 3 days before Christmas. From beginning to end I thoroughly enjoyed the show and was smiling and singing throughout. Beautiful costumes, amazing set design, and fabulous music (although a whole new world needed a bit more oomph in my humble opinion!) I absolutely loved the show however I was slightly upset when a member of theatre staff almost pounced on me because I tried to take a photograph - she actually grabbed my phone and startled me - I wasn't aware photos were prohibited and I was just showing my appreciation to such a pretty stage. There are ways and means of dealing with this and physical action shouldn't be one! A glamorous, glittering must see!


London Box Office customer

Colourful

Very impressed with this show . Really finished off a good day out .


London Box Office customer

Stunning!

I really loved the show! I was travelling in London for a week, and this musical was one of the best memories I have made. Awesome!!


London Box Office customer

Flames at the start, the interval and the end

Brilliant show, shame about the fire brigade having to come at the interval and clear everyone out of the building. Otherwise good night.


London Box Office customer

Great

6 of us attended all enjoyed


London Box Office customer

Reservations

Biggest problem was casting, Aladdin although a good actor and singer just did not look like Aladdin at all, this spoilt the show for me. The genie by far the best character in the show. Don't think this will be of the same standard as the Lion King - it isn't. More like a pantomime. No monkey and no tiger, they managed it with the Lion King. Did enjoy but not up to Disney standard.


London Box Office customer

Awesome!

A fantastic night of entertainment! Best for families with 5+ age of kids, but would recommend to anyone really who is open for dance, music and a light story peppered with a bit of contemporary humor. The Genie was fantastic! Best loughs for a long while!


London Box Office customer

Sorry but not the best

I think that we expect better from the west end as at today's seat prices it is ment to be a real treat . My 10 year old granddaughter enjoyed it so I am happy enough .


London Box Office customer

The show was amazing, will defitnely recommend


London Box Office customer

Wonderful show !!! A must see !

London Box Office customer

Magical

Absolutely the most magical show I've been to see in a very long time. I was astounded from start to finish. They made all of my childhood dreams come to life. £140 for tickets and worth every single penny. If you are booking tickets don't bother sitting at the back you need to see this performance up close and personal. Sit in the stalls between row A and K !


London Box Office customer

A Must See Show

It was a wonderful show. Everything was nice and well done. I recommend it to all ages. Go early and have dinner around the theater. the area is really nice.


London Box Office customer

The stage work is awesome but the singing can be better. Wonder whether it could be because it was a matinee show.


London Box Office customer

A must see

London Box Office customer

Amazing productions, a must see!

This was an amazing production with spectacular sets and special effects. I really liked all the actors but I didn't like Aladdin's voice so much. I don't think it fit perfectly the role. Other than that, it is a great show worth seeing.


London Box Office customer

Enjoyable

London Box Office customer

Definitely more of a pantomime than a musical

We were so excited to see Aladdin hit the stage, and we booked 5 tickets to celebrate a family birthday. An old family favourite Disney film. However, we were disappointed with the poor acting, production and directing. It was definitely more of a Pantomime feel (with some scantily clad women dancing) than musical. Our favourite character was the Genie, who pulled the whole show together - funny, stage presence and in character all the time. The costumes and scene changes were spectacular. Perhaps we have been spoilt with Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Wicked - Aladdin was no where on the scale of "up there". I'm afraid we wouldn't go and see this again, or recommend this show to others.


London Box Office customer

Awesome!

The cast were fantastic. Aladdin and the Genie were our favourites. Sets and costumes were amazingly elaborate.


London Box Office customer

Must See!

London Box Office customer

Absolutely beautiful

It was easily the most beautiful thing I've ever experience. Hilarious , vibrantly colorful, brilliant performance ... I would definitely remember this for a long time.


London Box Office customer

A must see!

London Box Office customer

Absolutely Fantastic

Wasn't sure what to expect but entertaining on all levels and would be enjoyable for anyone of any age.


London Box Office customer

Brilliant!! Vibrant!!

I was so extorted to see the show!! I've been wanting to watch it for long time and the show was amazing!! I'll definetrely come back to London again!! Thanks for the exciting night !! Xx


London Box Office customer

Fantastic

This was a fabulous show with great music. The genie made the show for us. I would really recommend it to everyone


London Box Office customer

Amazing! Top 3 for London Musicals

London Box Office customer

Worth to see it once!

The show was very good overall. I saw this musical also in Japan. The setting was almost the same and the casts were wonderful. If I had only one thing to say, Genie's act was splendid without a doubt but Jamine and Aladdin voices did not perfectly match. Aladdin voice did not have one of those musical long, stretching sound. But I enjoyed it very much!


London Box Office customer

treat to the eyes and the ears!

London Box Office customer

Partly spectacular

Though the cast is spectacular (especially the genie) and despite some truly incredible scenes, the production felt a little bit rushed and low key during the other scenes. Nevertheless, this is a show that you should see and you'll have a good time. The actor playing the genie is incredibly talented and you shouldn't miss the show if only to see his scenes !!


London Box Office customer

Great show for kids with great music, dance , costume and set design.

London Box Office customer

An excellent night out

A brilliant show ... comes highly recommended to anyone!


London Box Office customer

Best show in the West End!

London Box Office customer

An amazing show!

London Box Office customer

Genifried

Generally entertaining. Just about the right length. Don't expect it to be as comprehensive as the Disney film. No monkey and no parrot as such. Fight scenes are pantomimic, overheard one customer on leaving comparing it with a pantomime rather than a musical.


London Box Office customer

great family entertainmentg

Fantastic special effects. Came out feeling uplifted.Best show I have seen for a while.

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.
