Aladdin The Musical Philadelphia Tickets
Aladdin The Musical Philadelphia TicketsRelying on your friends is the key takeaway of Disney’s Aladdin, and that same bright message rings true in the Broadway musical production that’s based on the famous 1992 movie. In 2010, the first inkling of the debut of this play was provided by the movie’s composer, Alan Menken, and four years later, the musical comedy made its debut. Like the movie, the stage show is based on characters that appeared in the Middle Eastern tales, One Thousand and One Nights, which were known for their swashbuckling fables about characters like Aladdin. Since its debut in 2014, >Aladdin the musical has been performed thousands of times. Since its premiere, the show has been nominated five times for the prestigious Tony Awards, and lead actor James Monroe Iglehart won a Tony for Best Featured Actor in a Musical. The show has had performances at its home on Broadway and has gone on to be performed in locations worldwide, including the United Kingdom, Germany, New Zealand and Japan.
A Boy and His GenieAt the heart of the stage play is the relationship between the title character and his magical friend, Genie. Genie serves as the primary comic focus, and Aladdin is his comic foil. Much of the play’s plot was directly lifted from the movie, so characters like Jafar, Jasmine and Iago all make appearances, and fans will be delighted to hear that Jonathan Freeman reprises his role as Jafar in the play. This means that the musical numbers that are Jafar-centric have much of the same feeling that they did in the film, which is a delight for many fans of the cinematic originator. Chad Beguelin, who created the book for the play, has an extensive history on Broadway of helping to adapt film properties. He was responsible for adaptations like The Wedding Singer, The Prom and Elf the Musical".
