Disney's Aladdin, a stage adaptation of the 1992 Academy Award-winning animated film musical, is in rehearsals for its Nov. 1 premiere at Toronto's Mirvish Theatre, where it will run through Jan. 5, 2014.
As previously reported, Aladdin will open on Broadway March 20, 2014, at the New Amsterdam Theatre. Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon) directs.
Menken previously told Playbill.com that the stage production incorporates many ideas he and Ashman conceived for the 1992 film that never made it to the screen. Among them are a trio of Aladdin's friends, Omar, Babkak and Kassim, as well as a handful of early songs including "Proud of Your Boy."
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
