Rating: 4/5 stars

Aladdin, one of Disney’s most popular movies, play adaption can be viewed at London’s Prince Edward Theatre. The set and special effects are well designed and one actually feels present in the fictional kingdom “Agrabah”. Additional use of background characters brought more life to the scenes, however occasionally they distracted the viewer from the main scene.

Credit goes to Trevor Dion Nicholas and Dean John-Wilson for accurately portraying the characters Genie and Aladdin as well as being very interactive with the audience. Overall the play provides one with the delight and joy for which Disney is popular for.
