"Aladdin" Cast?
Posted: 5/7/13 at 09:15am
I know there hasn't been an official announcement, but does anyone know who was been cast in the show so far from word of mouth?

I know James Monroe Iglehart really wants to play the Genie again.

Callbacks were last month so if calls have not gone out yet, I am sure they will soon.

I wonder now that Tuck Everlasting has been put on hold, will Andrew Keenan Bolger be in the cast, assuming the trio has not been cut.

I do know that the show HAS been cast. They have just not announced it yet. I heard through the grapevine/some where on social media that Andrew Cao (Anything Goes, Nice Work If You Can Get It) was cast, but I don't know what role. But casting and call backs have been done. Just not officially announced yet.

Speaking of Dan Domenech and Disney, he is playing Tarzan in Manila in June. I'm still rooting for Adam Jacobs as Aladdin.

Is it normal for a show to be cast six months before opening? Are they doing readings or workshops first?

Hesione Hushabye thinks it tastes like ashes.

I know for a fact they've talked to Karen Olivo, now I don't know if anything ever came of it but I do know her and the Aladdin team have been in touch.

That's what I thought as well but I assume if you're approached to originate an original part of a famous Disney princess you take the call.

Please, for the love of all that is good, just and right, tell me Jonathan Freeman is back as Jafar...

THAT would make my life.

Olivo could play Jasmine's mother!

^That could work if Jasmine's mother is only in the show once or twice a week.

If Jonathan Freeman is not back as Jafar, I will freak out!

Really, he was the best thing about the Seattle version of the show.

And Karen Olivo is completely wrong for Jasmine. Sorry girl, luv ya but...

Yurel Echezarreta is in the ensemble and will also understudy the role of Cassim, Aladdin’s father.

Hi All,

I'm covering Aladdin for BroadwayWorld Toronto for their out of town tryout. As of right now no casting has been confirmed by the producers.

As soon as news about the production is available, I'll post a link to it here. I don't think it'll be anytime soon. Based off of my experience, we don't usually get a confirmation/press release until all contracts are signed and they go into rehearsal.

Even though she doesn't have the "skin color" or the "nationality", but Laura Osnes played Jasmine regionally alongside her husband. They both were understudies. She defiantly has the voice, and I think she would be freakin' fantastic IMO. They could "spray tan" or "paint" her every night like they do with Elphaba, but eh...that's probably too much and probably wouldn't look good on stage (who knows? Have they ever tried this with a actor?) I have a good feeling that Adam Jacobs will be reprising the role on Broadway, since he already has a relationship with Disney. Robin de Jesus could also be a considered choice, he played Aladdin too, and he already has experience on the Broadway stage..

Is the skin color makeup comment trolling, or not? Of course they've tried it, it's an enormous and ugly part of our history. And there is really no excuse for not just finding someone who fits the race of the role as written, because God knows there's enough talented people of any.

^^ Very true. I wonder how Laura Osnes looked like in the costume, did she even look like Jasmine? If anyone can find any pictures of it, please post!

I too hope that Jonathan Freeman is still Jafar! This show needs no big stars just some really talented performers! I have high hopes for this show!

From what I have heard contracts have been offered to ALL of the leads from Seattle. I don't know who accepted and who did not.

I wonder will Andrew Keenan Bolger be involved seeing that Tuck has been delayed?
