What's the story?
Set in the fictional Arabian town of Agrabah, orphan 'street rat' Aladdin spends his days foraging for food and trying to stay one jump ahead of the palace guards. Meanwhile, in the palace, Princess Jasmine is being persuaded to find a suitable husband. Resentful of the pressure, Jasmine disguises herself as a peasant and breaks out of the palace.
In the marketplace, Aladdin saves Jasmine's life and the pair fall instantly in love. The Sultan's evil advisor, Jafar, discovers that Aladdin is a 'diamond in the rough' and orders him to open the mysterious Cave of Wonders and bring him a magic lamp.
Aladdin reluctantly obeys and enters the cave to retrieve the lamp but the plan falls through, leaving him trapped inside the cave. As Aladdin accidentally rubs the magic lamp, he is greeted by a shape-shifting Genie who offers to grant him three wishes… and it is then that his real adventures begin!
Who's in it?
Having played the Genie to standing ovations every night on Broadway, Trevor Dion Nicholas squeezed into his lamp and took the magic carpet across the ocean to London, where he repeats his role at the Prince Edward. His performance is packed with energy, charisma and magical star quality that literally stops the show. Last seen in the musical 'In The Heights' at the King's Cross Theatre, Jade Ewen is the feisty Princess Jasmine. Jade previously represented the UK in the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest when she performed an original song written for her by Andrew Lloyd Webber. West End Newcomer Dean John-Wilson stars as the chirpy 'Aladdin' and Don Gallagher plays the evil 'Jafar' with Peter Howe is his sidekick 'Iago'. Irvine Iqbal is the Sultan. Nathan Amzi , Stephen Rahman-Hughes and Rachid Sabitri are riotously funny as Aladdin's friends: Babkak, Kassim and Omar.
