Adam Jacobs Plays His Final ALADDIN and Prepares to Lead the North American Tour

As Disney Theatrical Productions previously announced, Adam Jacobs, who originated the title role in Aladdin on Broadway, will play the iconic role in the show's eagerly-anticipated North American tour.

Jacobs leaves the iconic show today, February 12, 2017.

Sources indicate that Jacobs will be replaced by stage veteran Telly Leung. Leung's Broadway credits include Sam Kimura in Allegiance, Godspell, Rent, Pacific Overtures, & Flower Drum Song. TV audiences will remember Telly as Wes, the Warbler on "Glee." He's heard on many Broadway cast recordings and two solo albums - I'll Cover You (2012) and Songs for You (2016). Leung, currently starring in IN TRANSIT, has yet to confirm a start date. Beginning February 14, Aladdin understudy Joshua Dela Cruz will play the role.
