In the middle-eastern town of Agrabah, Princess Jasmine is feeling hemmed in by her father’s desire to find her a royal groom. Meanwhile, the Sultan’s right-hand man, Jafar, is plotting to take over the throne. When Jasmine sneaks out of the palace incognito, she forms an instant connection with Aladdin, a charming street urchin and reformed thief. After being discovered together, Aladdin is sentenced to death, but Jafar saves him by ordering him to fetch a lamp from the Cave of Wonders. Where there’s a lamp, there’s a Genie, and once Aladdin unwittingly lets this one out, anything can happen! Will Aladdin’s new identity as “Prince Ali” help him win Jasmine’s heart and thwart Jafar’s evil plans? Will the Genie’s wish for freedom ever come true?

The beloved characters from Disney’s 1992 animated hit are given fresh life on the New Amsterdam Theatre stage, including the “Friend Like Me” Genie, who leads two show-stopping musical numbers. The costumes and set design are among the most beautiful on Broadway, and Aladdin and Jasmine’s magic carpet ride to “A Whole New World” inspires gasps of delight. Seven new songs help flesh out a story that keeps audiences entranced all the way through to its happily-ever-after ending.
Is Aladdin Good for Kids?
