"What a fab show! "

Being our first time in New York, we were told you have to go and watch a broadway performance so we made sure we did. We booked tickets prior to flying out to New York and this is definitely something I recommend doing because the tickets at the theatre are quite expensive or you can risk getting tickets on the day for that evening at a ticket stand. We picked up our tickets from the theatre the morning that we were going and found out we had really good seats in the stalls which we were really happy about. The show was absolutely amazing. I haven’t seen it in London but it was brilliant. So entertaining and funny and the whole cast were fantastic. Would definitely recommend.

I'm not a massive theatre person but I have been to the West End to see Lion King twice. I've always said I'd like to see a Broadway show, I am glad it was Aladdin. The genie is brilliant, plenty of jokes for children and adults. The production itself is fantastic and the magic carpet is exceptional and very clever. Only downside for us was the family behind us were very loud and constantly talking! Other than that, brilliant!!!

The whole show is amazing. Everyone’s great but the performance of the Genie can not be described with words, is beyond great. Also, the magic carpet was one of my favorite parts. The music is so perfectly executed by the live band, they make the magic happen. Thank you to all cast members, it was a unforgettable experience.

"Nice production with technical dificulties on stage"

I was here on Friday, Jan 25, 2019. About 40 mins into the production there was a malfunction on stage and the curtain went down. About 10 mins later the curtain came up and there was an announcement that one of the cast members had been changed. Looking back through internet posts this does not appear unusual..so just be prepared to allow yourself more time in planning your evening. As for the show, there are a lot of cast members prancing around with predictable outcomes. However, the show is not boring it just needs to be cut down a bit in duration Would I go back, probably not, unless I had to take a family member who absolutely wanted to see the show. For my tourist friends, this show is NOT a MUST when coming to NYC.
