The tale of Aladdin is oneÂ most of us know from the Disney telling of the story in theÂ famous animated film of 1992. Growing up, Aladdin was my favorite Disney film,Â so, when I was given theÂ opportunity to review ALADDIN AND THE MAGIC LAMP at the OrlandoÂ Shakespeare Theatre, I jumped at the chance!Â Â I quickly realized however that the showÂ 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! The premise of the story is still the same, there are just a few slight variations (for example, there are two genies instead of one!). So, if you plan on seeing the show be prepared for some things to be a little different than what you remember.Â
