Thomas Schumacher, head of Disney Theatrical Productions, is in talks with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Theatres about securing the London Palladium for Disney’s Aladdin.

The show is proving a big hit on Broadway – and James Monroe Iglehart scooped a Tony Award this month for Best performance by an actor in a featured role in a musical for playing the Genie.
They are looking for a West End Theatre for 2016, with the Prince Edward (part of Cameron Mackintosh’s Delfont Mackintosh theatre group – whom Schumacher worked with on Mary Poppins) being the favourite venue, but looking unlikely now that Miss Saigon is nicely bedded in.
