Aladdin The Musical Houston Tickets
Aladdin Houston TicketsIf you’re going to be in the Houston area, and you're looking for a little magic, consider checking out a performance of the hit play, Aladdin. This adaptation of the story, Aladdin and the Magic Lamp, from the Middle Eastern story, One Thousand and One Nights, is also based on the 1992 movie. For those that experienced this movie during its first run, this play is like a walk down memory lane; many of the same scenes are intact, and the musical score is top-notch. The story follows the main character, Aladdin, as he negotiates through life. Aladdin has to steal to eat and he knows that his prospects are poor. Fortunately, he also understands that things will get better. This production has won multiple awards, including a Tony, which went to the original Genie performer back in 2014.
A Magic Carpet Ride for the AgesBefore 2010, no one knew that the movie would be getting a live-action Broadway release until the movie’s original musical composer let it drop that he was working on adapting the songs to the big stage. After that, many people wondered if the show would be similar to other Disney movies that were adapted for the play format. At the time, these included adaptations of classics like Mary Poppins and The Lion King. To ensure authenticity and quality, the original screenwriting treatment was used to plot out the stage play, and established playwright Chad Beguelin was utilized to help put together the play’s book. After four years of development, the show premiered in the center of Times Square, and it quickly became beloved by critics and audiences alike.

What’s the story behind the song, "Proud of Your Boy?"In this live adaptation of the tale of Aladdin, there’s an extra song that plays in the first act. The title of the song is "Proud of Your Boy," and the song was originally slated to appear in the film. Unfortunately, Aladdin’s mother was cut from the storyline, and Alan Menken opted to cut the song as well. Howard Ashman wrote the song, and sadly, he died one year before the film was released.
How long is the performance of Aladdin?The standard length of the Aladdin performance is two hours and 30 minutes. This runtime is approximate, with a 15-minute intermission between the two acts.
What famous Alan Menken songs appear in the play?One of the best features of the original Aladdin is its Broadway-friendly musical numbers – Alan Menken is famous on Broadway, and he stated that he was adapting the majority of the movie’s soundtrack into the production reasonably early on. As a result, classics like "Arabian Nights, "A Whole New World," "One Jump Ahead" and "Prince Ali" are all featured throughout the two acts.
What actors can I expect to see performing for the show?Currently, Clinton Greenspan plays the titular role, and he’s joined by Major Attaway as Genie. Prince Jasmine is portrayed by Arielle Jacobs, and the villainous Jafar is portrayed by the man who originated the role nearly 30 years ago in the film, Jonathan Freeman.
