If one of your three wishes was to see the 1992 Disney film Aladdin make its way to the Great White Way, you’re in luck. After much anticipation, the stage adaptation, directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw, with a book by Chad Beguelin, music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Tim Rice and the late Howard Ashman, officially opens at the New Amsterdam Theatre on March 20. To celebrate the show's official opening night, Broadway.com resident artist Justin “Squigs” Robertson sketched this portrait of the cast in action.
Adam Jacobs, Jonathan Freeman, James Monroe Iglehart, Courtney Reed, Brian Gonzales, Brandon O'Neill, Jonathan Schwartz, Clifton Davis and Don Darryl Rivera tell the story of a street urchin who, with the help of a magic Genie, wins the heart of Princess Jasmine.
Broadway.com wishes the cast and creative team of Aladdin a magical opening night!
About the Artist: With a desire to celebrate the magic of live theater and those who create it, and with a deep reverence for such touchstones as the work of Al Hirschfeld and the wall at Sardi’s, Squigs is happy and grateful to be among those carrying on the traditions where theater and caricature meet. He was born and raised in Oregon, lived in Los Angeles for quite a long time and now calls New York City his home.
