It's been an enchanting carpet ride for the company of Aladdin since they opened at the New Amsterdam Theatre over two years ago!

Now in its third smash year on Broadway, Aladdin opened to critical acclaim on March 20th, 2014 and quickly established itself as one of the biggest new blockbusters in recent years, already welcoming over 2.5 million people worldwide and breaking 11 New Amsterdam Theatre house records. Its global footprint has expanded to include productions in Tokyo, Hamburg, London and Sydney, and the upcoming North American tour.

Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, Aladdin features music by Tony Award and eight-time Oscar® winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Newsies, Sister Act), lyrics by two-time Oscar winner Howard Ashman (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid), three-time Tony Award and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice (Evita, Aida) and four-time Tony Award nominee Chad Beguelin (The Wedding Singer), with a book by Beguelin, and is directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon).
