Disney’s Aladdin Comes To Broadway


Broadway’s newest musical is based one of our favorite Disney classic movies, Aladdin.

Aladdin is the story of a young street urchin, Aladdin, played by Adam Jacobs, who wants to marry the Princess Jasmine, Courtney Reed, and is helped by Genie, James Monroe Iglehart, to defeat Jafar, Jonathan Freeman, to become the man who can and does end up with the Princess. Not a new comer to Broadway, Jacobs has been on Broadway since the age of 13 and has stared in shows like The Lion King (Simba), Cinderella (Prince) and Les Miserables (Marius).Excited by yesterday’s news of Disney’s desire to have a Broadway musical based on Frozen, I was even more excited to see this announcement. If this is anything like the Aladdin show at California Adventure at Disneyland, then we are all in for a real treat because I couldn’t stop laughing.

Aladdin opens February 26th at the New Amsterdam Theatre in New York and is currently scheduled to run through August 31st, 2014. There are no current plans for a tour of Aladdin.

Over the last few years we have been trying to about creating a website that is both fun for us, but has interest for the reader. We thought long and hard, but everything we thought of was not long term interesting to us. We needed something we could love and bring life to it, that is when it hit us, we should start a website about Disney. We knew though that there were many websites out there that already touched on many Disney subjects, we needed something to be different. It dawned on us while building the website that our love of runDisney could be combined with our excitement for all other things Disney to bring to life not only a resource for those who run Disney, but to Disney fans alike. We wanted to bring a bit of magic, and we hope you hang on for the ride as we explore the magical world of Disney World .
