Musical mogul and President and Producer of Disney Theatrical, Thomas Schumacher, flew in from New York to officially unveil plans of the musical that has been described by credible theatre critics as “awesome”, “jaw-dropping”, “fabulous and extravagant” and “Broadway magic”.
Having seen the musical in New York earlier this year, this writer thinks it is all this and much more. Aladdin is pure, A-grade entertainment and even better, proves that a night at the theatre is the perfect antidote to sitting on your smart phone around a restaurant table or on the lounge at home all night.
“You know, we are very excited to be partnering once again with the New South Wales Government and Destination NSW on Aladdin which is our third Disney production to premiere in Sydney,’’ said Mr Schumacher.
“Director Casey Nicholaw and his team have created an entertainment as full of heart as it is joy and I cannot wait until we get to play it in Sydney, one of the world’s great theatre cities.”
