Aladdin The Musical

Aladdin

The National Autistic Society arranged a relaxed performance for Aladdin The Musical.
It had been booked since we went to see Mama Mia –link
Due to works at Waterloo, we went via Bus six in total there and back I would say it took over an hour.
It’s always a great feeling to see the theatre lit up with the current performance being shown,
I did a little theatre spotting for fun and as they are near

 Prince Edward Theatre

Aladdin Musical Review

The show is approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes,

including a 20-minute interval. providing the fire alarm doesn’t go off and having to be evacuated,
yes, it was an accident and nothing serious kk was finding it hard to keep calm
along with other people in the auditorium. Yet,
that being said I have to say how great the theatre team and
NAS along with the Disney store team handled it
thank you for keeping us safe!

 Relaxed Performance 

As always the main cast comes out on stage to introduce themselves
to there character names The stage props were very eye-catching and true
Agraba sandstone buildings with orange hues.
The costumes were bedazzling and Princess worthy.

Aladdin The Musical

Jasmine

I would have liked to if seen Jasmine played by Jade Ewen,
being sassier in her role, how it’s portrayed in the film you wouldn’t really mess with her.
Aladdin played by Matthew Croke was a sweet character,
and showed good choreography skills building climbing and jumping. 

Jafar

Jafar, as played by Don Gallagher, fair played the character.
could even have been a bit darker in his look and speech but this was a good character role.
But, I have to say although I enjoyed watching Aladdin The Musical
I was disappointed that Abu and Raja weren’t included, That saddened me.

what’s Aladdin without them?

I did enjoy The magic Carpet scene.
brought Aladdin The Musical to life.

Robin Williams was the full centre for me in Aladdin. he put so much energy into his roles and Genie was a massive role for him, growing up him as one of my Idols I wasn’t sure if anyone could be any better.

Genie

So what did  Trevor Dion Nicholas character portrayal of Genie,
he was fun bubbly and passionate about his role.

4-out-of-5-stars-rating

Overall I enjoyed watching Aladdin The Musical it’s definitely a must-see.

But for me, Abu and Rajah were missing.

so 4/5 from me
