BWW Review: Board a Magic Carpet with the Kiddos for Orlando Shakes' ALADDIN AND THE MAGIC LAMP
by Libby Champion - Jun 28, 2017

The tale of Aladdin is one most of us know from the Disney telling of the story in the famous animated film of 1992. Growing up, Aladdin was my favorite Disney film, so, when I was given the opportunity to review ALADDIN AND THE MAGIC LAMP at the Orlando Shakespeare Theatre, I jumped at the chance!   I quickly realized however that the show is not based on the version from the film, but instead on the Middle Eastern folktale 'The Arabian Nights' - which, was unexpected but a great surprise!

So, if you plan on seeing the show be prepared for some things to be a little different than what you remember.  (more...)
