Disney has announced that the movie “Aladdin” is going to become a Broadway play! The musical show will arrive on Broadway in New York City in 2014.
Thomas Schumacher, the president of Disney Theatrical Productions, revealed:
If I look around Broadway right now, what I want to see is big production numbers. I want to see lush environments. I want surprise. You want a lot of humor, which we will do. And you want heart.
The show will be directed and choreographed by Tony Award winning Casey Nicholaw while the story and lyrics come from Chad Beguelin.
Disney’s “Aladdin” musical will arrive at the Ed Mirvish Theatre in Toronto in November 2013 to be tested before arriving at the New Amsterdam Theatre in New York in 2014.
