Gayle Turner, founding member of Vivid Seats' Fan Ambassador blog Disney Gals, went to see Aladdin on Broadway last week. The show was a big hit with the lifelong lover of Disney and theater. It also marked Gayle's first chance to see a Broadway musical on Broadway, and a Disney musical no less.
You can read about the Aladdin on Broadway review below where Gayle highlights pleny of tips for first-time Broadway attendees, as well as many notes specific to this particular show at New York's New Amsterdam Theater:
This is the perfect show to bring the entire family to and introduce them to the world of musical theater. Disney’s Aladdin starts at 6:30 allowing for younger children to be a part of the magic that comes from the special evening out on the town. I know my own grandchildren who range in age from 5-10 would have loved every minute of it, especially being the Disney family that we are. After the show, be sure to take the kids around to the Stage Door where many times they have the opportunity to meet the performers, who go out of their way to take the time to say “Hello”, pose for pictures, and sign autographs. Talk about a once in a lifetime memory.
It's safe to say that Gayle was blown away by the magic of Aladdin on Broadway, including the show-stopping musical number "Proud of Your Boy" and James Monroe Iglehart's stunning performance as The Genie. There was even a little bit of interactive photo op fun on site at the theater.
