Adam Jacobs in 'Aladdin'
'Aladdin' shines like a 'diamond in the rough' by joining the top five.

Make way for Prince Ali, Broadway! The new Disney musical Aladdin has flown into the top five grossing shows, joining perennial box office faves Wicked, The Lion King, The Book of Mormon and Kinky Boots. Meanwhile, Broadway audiences have made it clear that they love seeing celebs up close and personal. Making appearances in the top five shows by capacity last week were the Neil Patrick Harris led Hedwig and the Angry Inch, A Raisin in the Sun starring Denzel Washington and Cabaret with Michelle Williams and Alan Cumming.
