You ain’t never had a friend like James Monroe Iglehart! The Aladdin star is the latest to give us a glimpse of backstage life on the Great White Way. Get excited for his video blog series, I Dream of Genie: Backstage at Aladdin with James Monroe Iglehart.
The Tony winner will grab a cam and show us just how magical life is over at the New Amsterdam Theatre, where he grants wishes, taps up a storm and launches pyrotechnics eight times a week. We’re also looking forward to lots of glitter hugs, cartwheels and visits to the fine establishment that is McDonald’s.
In addition to his Tony-winning turn in Aladdin, Iglehart’s Broadway credits include Memphis and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. He also appeared in the Encores! presentation of The Wiz.
I Dream of Genie kicks off on August 7 and will run every Thursday for eight weeks.
