Aladdin, adapted from Disney’s animated film and age-old folk tales including “Arabian Nights,” takes on theatrical new life in this bold new musical. Aladdin’s Journey takes audiences to an exotic world of daring adventure, classic comedy and timeless romance. This new production features a full score, featuring all five beloved songs from the Oscar-winning soundtrack and others written especially for the stage.
The animated film Aladdin was released by Disney in 1992 and was a critical and box office success, becoming the highest-grossing film of the year.
The film won the Oscar for Best Original Score and featured the hit song “A Whole New World,” which won the film’s second of two Academy Awards for Best Original Song. The Peabo Bryson/Regina Belle recording of the song peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Aladdin is designed by seven-time Tony award-winning set designer Bob Crowley, six-time Tony award-winning lighting designer Natasha Katz, two-time Tony award-winning costume designer Gregg Barnes and sound designer Ken Travis.
The production team also includes illusion designers Jim Steinmeyer and Rob Lake, hairstylist Josh Marquette and makeup artist Milagros Medina-Cerdeira.
