Aladdin The Musical Pittsburgh Tickets
Aladdin Pittsburgh TicketsWho doesn’t remember the 1992 movie Aladdin, which has become a favorite among Disney fans? Now you can see the story on the stage. Aladdin tells a narrative that transcends time. Its main character struggles with poverty but remains optimistic and is always looking for a chance to excel. Since its premiere, the musical has won its share of awards, and its original Genie, James Monroe Iglehart, took home a Tony award for his acclaimed performance.
I Can Show You the WorldThere’s little question that Aladdin is a tale about love and friendship, and the stage play features all of the scenes that many filmgoers fell in love with back in the '90s. However, Alan Menken, who was the composer of the film, has added a few surprises for the musical adaptation for Broadway. Since debuting on Broadway in 2014, the show has had more than 1,000 performances. For the five-year anniversary, five of the actors who have played Genie returned for a show-stopping, iconic dance number.

In addition to Alan Menken, who contributed to the score of Aladdin?When you have Aladdin tickets, you’ll be amazed at how many songs from the 1992 film you'll hear throughout the musical. This is a result of Alan Menken being involved and working with the material that he, the late Howard Ashman and Tim Rice created for the original movie. In addition to these credits, Chad Beguelin, who worked on the lyrics and book of the Broadway adaptations of The Wedding Singer and Elf the Musical has also contributed to the score.
What's the story behind the song "Proud of Your Boy?" in Aladdin?Those who saw the original film may notice a musical number in the first act that’s called "Proud of Your Boy." Aladdin sings this in the memory of his parents who passed away. This song was to be included in the original film, but the role of Aladdin’s mother was cut. As a result, Alan Menken had to make the tough decision to remove the song. The number had been created by Howard Ashman, and it was a tribute to his own mother. He unfortunately passed away a full year before Aladdin made it to the silver screen.
Is there a way for those who don’t speak much English to enjoy the show?If you speak Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Mandarin or Korean, you can use the Audien service, which was selected by the producers of Aladdin as a way to help those who have limited knowledge of English. The service includes a headset that translates the play. It costs about $10 to rent at most venues.
Who are some of the actors featured in Aladdin?The stage play has a very talented cast. These include Major Attaway as Genie and Clinton Greenspan as Aladdin in the Broadway cast. Jonathan Freeman, who plays Jafar on Broadway, also played the role in the 1992 movie in 1992. The touring cast includes Korie Lee Blossey as Genie and Jonah Ho'okano as Aladdin.
Are the characters precisely the same as those of the movie?In the early stages of the film’s production, there were three extra characters that served as Aladdin’s best friends. These characters were cut and replaced with Abu the monkey, who proved to be a fan favorite. Instead of using Abu, who would have been difficult to present in a stage production, these earlier three friends were reintroduced into the play. Their names are Babkak, Omar and Kassim.
