Aladdin, Prince Edward Theatre - ★★★- Until August 24, 2019.


Another Disney film makes it to the stage and re-imagines the film in theatrical form. “Aladdin” doesn’t really have the depth of “Lion King,” but it is another successful adaptation. It is a winner with devotees of the movie, but where are Rajah or Abu? The flying carpet amazes and delights but not all the animated effects make the stage. As with the movie, this version is stolen by the character of the genie. The stage really lights up every time he appears, and it is no surprise that the audience rises to its feet for his curtain call.
