From the producers of The Lion King is a timeless story of Aladdin. It is an exciting new production full of surprises and breathtaking spectacle. Aladdin is a musical inspired by the 1992 Disney animated film. Chad Beguelin, by the way, is the author of the book. The hit musical has 3 songs written by Ashman for the film. There are also 4 new songs written by Menken and Beguelin. Alan Menken composed the songs with lyrics co-written by Howard Ashman, Tim Rice, and Chad Beguelin.
It is a story of a poor young man who stumbled upon a lamp and was given 3 wishes by the lamp’s residing genie. He uses his wishes to enchant the princess and to stop the sultan’s evil Grand Vizier’s wicked schemes. The setting is in Agrabah, a fictional Arabian city. The characters and the location are Middle Eastern.
The animation made a history of being the first in Disney to feature non-white protagonists. On the other hand, the modification of Aladdin and Jasmine’s spoken language to English drew mixed reviews, stating that Disney may have lacked an authentic representation of ethnically diverse characters.
In 2011, Aladdin premiered at the 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle. The musical was then given a Toronto tryout in 2013 after being distributed in different regions and produced internationally in 2012. On the 20th of March, it opened on Broadway at the New Amsterdam Theatre. The musical received positive reviews that led to its 5 Tony Awards nominations.
