Bryan, I see you own a device that allows you to post on these boards. Congratulations, you officially meet the requirements of being able to purchase the digital copy of Aladdin. Now you can hear it before the Tony Awards.
No one gives a damn about the list of shows you've seen.

I preordered the cd at the show in December in Toronto. Never been able to do this before. I'm assuming that I'll get it in June when the physical cd is released? Anyone have any other thoughts?

Entertainment Weekly is offering a sneak peak at the cast recording with a "A Whole New World" and "High Adventure". I just finished listening to "A Whole New World" and it sounded beautiful.

Listening to "A Whole New World" and this is my first exposure to our Broadway Jasmine... wow Courtney Reed is incredibly bland.
Words don't deserve that kind of malarkey. They're innocent, neutral, precise, standing for this, describing that, meaning the other, so if you look after them you can build bridges across incomprehension and chaos. But when they get their corners knocked off, they're no good anymore…I don't think writers are sacred, but words are. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones in the right order, you can nudge the world a little.

Courtney Reed is the definition of bland. She looks the part but that's about the extent of her "talent."

^ I think she's okay, but Lea Salonga is WAY BETTER. I think Jessica Sanchez would make a great Jasmine if she's ever interested in doing Broadway.

I actually thought she sounded great. Everyone has the original version engraved in their minds, but not everyone can be Lea Salonga. Lol. Love the arrangements and orchestrations.

I think Melissa O'Neil would be a great Jasmine as well.

The fact that Dany Troob was not recognized with a Tony nomination for his incredible orchestrations is ridiculous.

The dialogue bits sounds a bit flat but the songs are great, Friend like Me and High Adventure are my favourite so far.

I really love "A Million Miles Away." The instruments sound fantastic in that one.

I could also go on and on about how ridiculous it was that ALADDIN's creative team was snubbed completely with the exception of Nicholaw's choreo.


I'm also rooting for ALADDIN or BRIDGES for score. The other two don't even compare.

"The fact that Dany Troob was not recognized with a Tony nomination for his incredible orchestrations is ridiculous."

I probably would've nominated him in place of Doug Besterman.
