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.
Want Aladdin tickets? We always have great availability and you'll enjoy excellent value for money on the complete range of ticket types and seats, cheap to posh.

I loved the show it was truly spectacular, I particularly liked the genie. However for me the show was spoilt because of a very noisy, selfish audience to my right. There were about three different families who I can honestly say were so rude. I thought there was a theatre etiquette in place. The family of five directly in front of me chatted loudly throughout, fidgeting the whole way through. Further forward on the right was a family scrunching sweet papers loudly throughout the show and talking loudly. The two ladies to my right were equally upset and told people to be quiet, I am sure you must be aware of them because they did not return to their seats after the interval and I can totally understand why. Two seats on from me then during the second half there was a child moving , fidgeting, standing sitting, bumping the seats. Then the family in front of me very noisily shared popcorn, chatting and fidgeting. I have to say sadly my experience was not too. Nobody came to tell the families to be quiet. I have to say for me it spoiled the whole experience. My daughter & I were there as a birthday treat and I have to say I feel I wasted my money.

I had no idea how magnificent this show would be. My soon to be 10 year old granddaughter asked me to take her for her birthday and as it isn’t till October we went yesterday as show is sadly ending soon. From the moment the show started we were spellbound. Genie is superb as were all the cast. Costumes and sets are breathtaking. Mustn’t give too much away but for anyone who hasn’t seen Aladdin yet please get tickets (even though they are absolute fortune).

The show was amazing. It was actually my second time seeing it. However, the usher in our section (if there was one?) did not address any of the obnoxious behaviour of some of the people sitting in the section. There was a child climbing all over the seat next to me and had her phone out and the woman in front of me was shopping on amazon throughout the show. I prefer to enjoy the show and not have to confront people around me but there was blatant phone use and no one doing anything about it in the section while it was clearly being addressed in the next section over. Absolutely brilliant show, but it was really dampened for me because of this.

Beautiful show and acting. The show was interrupted by 15 minutes due to technical difficulties. Two people sitting next to me spent most of the show talking to each other and playing on their phones. I was fortunate because a lady at the row of the back has offered me her seat, as she moved somewhere else.

I got my ticket on a whim, thinking this would be a fun, entertaining thing to do. It was so much more - the actors, especially the genie, were so captivating, the music catchy and the costumes and scenery simply impressing. I loved the references to popculture without ever leaving the mindset of the arabic world. Also, genie's nod to his previous roles and Alan Menken was lovely. Jasmin was a little too squeaky or me, but overall it was a great, satisfying show. New characters and songs were added, and the storyline slightly changed from the Disney movie, but it felt very fitting and not forced. Loved it!

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.Review: ALADDIN at the Prince Edward Theatre
