I'd see it at a discount, but so far they haven't offered any. I guess that means it's selling well.

Technical difficulties during the premiere of #Aladdin at #Mirvish in #Toronto. Why doesn't the Genie just fix it?!? Use the lamp!!

Stitch Kingdom ?@stitchkingdom 10m

RT @melwantsmusic: Honestly though, one act in and this show is phenomenal. Regardless of opening night bugs, it's gonna do great. #aladdin

I did a quick search and found these two things:

Autumn Swalley ?@TheDisniac 1h
Aladdin and Jasmine's carpet ride became less romantic when Aladdin fell through the magic carpet. #AladdinPremiere #Toronto #IsYouGood

and

Matt Tonks ?@Tonktista 3h
So much for Aladdin and his magic carpet ride on opening night in toronto #aladdin. And waiting... pic.twitter.com/SRQITDCcZZ

Not sure what happened... because I also found the tweets that were quoted before, like:

Stitch Kingdom ?@stitchkingdom 4h
RT @gordonmac67: #Aladdin GENIE is AWESOME. A Toronto MUST SEE! And that's just the first act!

There was just a short delay during the show because of technical difficulties. After a quick pause, everything was back to normal. This is fairly normal for a first preview.

I had a great time at the show, though! Had lots of fun.

I'd love to know how it differs from the Seattle production apart from the set.

I can't really comment on the production comparing it to other Disney shows or on the performances. They're still in previews and it's not a finished product, and as I write for BWW it wouldn't be fair to do so. Either way, I'm not making any judgements until I do see the finished product in the future - which I really am looking forward to!

The show was really good though, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

There are lots of comments on twitter using hashtag #AladdinTO for anyone who's curious.

So why post you will be at the first preview, and than say cause you write for this website you can't post anything?
Well I didn't want to get into it, but he's a Satanist. Every full moon he sacrifices 4 puppies to the Dark Lord and smears their blood on his paino. This should help you understand the score for Wicked a little bit more. Tazber's: Reply to Is Stephen Schwartz a Practicing Christian
