A Whole New WorldFollowing the success of its other stage adaptations, Disney enlisted the help of its longtime composer Alan Menken, who wrote the memorable scores for The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Tangled and much else, to bring Aladdin to the stage. Menken added several new songs and arrangements but otherwise kept most of the original soundtrack with lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice. Playwright Chad Beguelin, who had previously worked on Elf and The Wedding Singer, adapted the storyline of the film into a book for the musical. He also wrote the lyrics to most of the new songs. Aladdin made its Broadway debut at the New Amsterdam Theatre on March 20, 2014. The Broadway production starred Adam Jacobs as Aladdin, Jonathan Freeman as Jafar, James Monroe Iglehart as the Genie and Courtney Reed as Princess Jasmine. It also featured Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon and Mean Girls) as director and choreographer. Since its original premiere, Aladdin has become one of the most popular musicals on Broadway, grossing more than $400 million. Critical reception was likewise positive. The Broadway production received five nominations from the 2014 Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score. James Monroe Iglehart walked away with the sole win for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical. Aladdin also received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Musical Theater Album.
