Disney’s West End spectacular musical Aladdin will close in Autumn 2019.
Following three dazzling years, Disney’s musical stage adaptation of the much-loved animated film will complete its West End run at the Prince Edward Theatre in late August 2019.
The production will make way for a revival of Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Olivier and Tony award winning production of Mary Poppins, which ran for three years at the Prince Edward Theatre from 2004.
Disney’s Aladdin is currently one of the West End’s big spectacular musicals with exhilarating choreography, show-stopping numbers and astonishing visual effects.
Filled with daring adventure, classic comedy and timeless romance, Disney’s Aladdin features all the songs from the Academy Award-winning classic film including “A Whole New World”, “Friend Like Me” and “Arabian Nights” plus new music written for this production.
The musical currently stars Matthew Croke (Aladdin), Jade Ewen (Princess Jasmin) and Trevor Dion Nichols (Genie).
Disney’s Aladdin was brought to the stage by world class creative team including director and choreographer, Casey Nicolaw (The Book of Mormon, Dreamgirls) with music by Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast), lyrics by Howard Ashman (Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), Tim Rice (The Lion King, Evita) and Chad Beguelin (Elf), and a book by Chad Beguelin.
Disney’s Aladdin is currently booking until 9 February 2019, with the final performance to be late August 2019 at the Prince Edward Theatre, London.
