I really enjoy musicals and theatre, so when I heard Aladdin was coming to Melbourne, I pretty much bought tickets as soon as they were out on pre-sale (Oct 2016 for a May 2017 show)!
Now, while Aladdin wasn’t my favourite Disney film growing up, I’ve always really loved the songs, so it was a real treat to see them performed live on stage by talented performers (hello genie!). And although there were many songs (and part of the story line) that differed from the original Disney film, I still really enjoyed everything and do recommend it.
We watched Aladdin at Her Majesty’s Theatre, and although I really enjoyed the show, I was disappointed in the size of Her Majesty’s and the close proximity of the person next to me did distract me from the show quite a bit! However, apart from that, Aladdin the Broadway Musical is definitely something you should check out if you ever get the chance!
