One of the best shows I have seen, so colourful, sparkling and funny, The flying carpet was amazing, would highly recommend.
Maybe the best musical exer
Enjoyed it immensely
I think the original Disney version of 'Aladdin will always be the best and most definitive. I am really glad that I went to see 'Aladdin and for the most, I was pleasantly surprised. I think the recent live-action version with Jafar was a complete let down. In this version, they were faithful to the characters and mostly did them justice. I think Jafar and Iago were a good match, although seemed sidetracked for other, more insignificant characters. Abu the monkey and Raja the tiger were not present at all. Princess Jasmine was good, but did not have the feeling that she was from Agarbah. This was the same as other characters. Whilst there were fun dance numbers, perhaps some of the dances needed to be more loyal to where they were from. Aladdin had a good voice and the Geanie nailed it from his dramatic entrance and stole the show. The actual costumes, lighting, special effects, and, particularly the stage set were powerful for the cave. The cloth back sheets in between scenes made this pantomime like. I think Jafar and Iago had a lot of potential and were not really used enough. Why did Jafar not use his cobra cane with his hypnotic powers and the ending to Jafar was rushed. With all the effects and a high budget, allow the villain to go for it and turn him into the oversized cobra, which people like to see and expect. I think the cave scene was incredible and the flying carpet was lovely. It is very important to stay loyal to characters which everyone loves so much. With Jafar, who is an incredible Disney villain, ensure he gets the justice he deserves. I do think this is a production worth going to see and is a good version of the original version. I think the costume, set, lighting, visual effects and the actors did their absolute best with what they have been asked to deliver. The scriptwriter needs to consider roles which were better suited to the original. They have missed a trick with the magic of Aladdin and Abu. Similarly, this can be said for Princess Jasmine and Raja. The element of making Jasmine a stronger character was a good element and she did a good job of embodying a Disney princess. Overall, there are elements which make this production very good, but, it did perhaps lack in sections. Having just seen Tina Turner which is a force to be reckoned with and perfect in every way, Aladdin, as ambitious as it was, needed to do more to impress. Story is so important. Thank you.
Was awesome overall, nice experience. I had my daughters with me 7 and 12 and they had great time as well..
This was an amazing production. The set was amazing and the cast were incredible especially the genie. The genie was funny especially loved his dance that was a copy of Will Smith
The best show yet that I have seen! There was action all the way through not once did we get bored, the show had us gripped all the way until the end. The colours of costumes stood out and looked amazing. If I get the chance I would love to watch it again!
What an amazing show my First time seeing one in London loved it all booked to see Mary poppins at the same venue next year
Amazing props, costumes, backdrops, illusions and energy by the whole cast in the play. My family loved the genie the best! A show not to miss!
I absolutely loved the show! The cast were great and the genie was my favourite! So many laughs throughout the show. I was so happy I could get tickets for this great show. Also thank you to the staff! Who were really understanding of my invisible illness and escorted me from outside to my seat.
Such an amazing and uplifting performance! Loads of energy and the sets are very impressive. Definitely worth seeing!
Amazing performance by all the cast. Genie was especially comical. Casted brilliantly and costumes were spectacular.
The show was excellent. The genie made the show amazing!
Saw the show last week and it was superb! One of the best musicals I have seen in a long time. In addition to the actors performing wonderfully special praise must be given to the creators of the sets and the special effects - absolutely mindblowing. Cannot praise the show enough.
From the intro to the final bow, this show is full of comedy, drama and a lot of greatly timed on liners and sequins. Incredible cast and the genie was magical! Best show I have seen in along time. Fun for all the family
The show was highly enjoyable but we were initially unsure as it seemed as if it was going to be a slightly pantomimey show, our doubts howere where removed by the time the genie stole the show and the great effects came into Action xx We loved this show and the staff at the theater were extremely helpful as we were slightly late xxx
Amazing show and great production, would definitely recommend !
Because of London Pride being on this Saturday we had no option other than to walk from London Victoria to the theatre as there was no public transport or taxis. Wished when booking this performance a few months ago an alert could have been added to the theatre website!! My granddaughter was so disappointed
Late to the party, and just had to get tickets for the final weeks, and so glad we did, it was simply incredible! The set designs, the production, the quality of the vocals, the music and the humour, it ticked every single box. It followed the classic and very beloved Disney threads, but added its own unique spin on things. The genie brought the house down every time he entered stage. Go see this before it's too late! You won't regret it.
Seats were fabulous, show was amazing...programme was reasonably priced.....beautiful theatre...loved it.
We went to this show for my daughters 21st birthday and it was perfect. Amazing sets, costumes, dancing and singing. We absolutely loved it.
Absolutely loved the dance choreography, + top class performances from all concerned singing and performing was excellent. Would definitely go again
Day out for my wife’s birthday, both remember reading the Disney books and watching movies from our childhood days. Would definitely recommend it was absolutely brilliant experience very acted the costumes the sets were amazing. The only disappointing part was that there was no magic carpet scene. ☹️
Nice I like the genie
It was a really good show, but we had to leave after 20 minutes because it was too loud for my daughter who was just getting over an flu so her ears were a little bit too sensitive. Even I thought it was very loud so I would suggest taking sound reducing ear protection for the little ones mainly for just the music parts.
I must admit that I generally love musicals and might therefore be a bit bias, however I did go to Aladdin with very little expectations and was blown away. What a funny yet brilliant performance with great current adaptations. To be honest vocally it is not my favourite musical though the lack in outstanding talents (despite the Genie and Jafar) was made up by its wit, great acting and stage sceneries. All in all a must see and defiantly a musical that leaves you in great spirit.
Sets were spectacular & costumes, theatre good air conditioning easy to find in West end. Disappointed with quality of sound in the grand circle granddaughter fell asleep as performance seemed a bit tired & lack lustre. Shame I imagine performances were tip top when the show first started. A delay of 10/15 minutes in middle of show with technical difficulties meant you didn’t get into the story. All was lost feel it wasn’t value for money.
Really good show. All the actors performed amazingly. Music was beautiful.
I was a bit underwhelmed at the start, but the show picks up significantly once the Genie comes in to the storyline. But overall great experience, and recommend to all!
Fantastic show, so colourful and magical, amazing flying carpet
Fantastic, fun and funny show enjoyed by all the family !!!
I was looking forward to the show but due to high temperatures and traffic we only just made the show. The staff were very rude I asked for water as I felt like I would pass out and got a big fat no. The show stopped for half an hour some people left and didn’t come back it was so hot in there. I felt they rushed the end part through no final song sang just a bow and it finished. So disappointing.
Absolutely loved every second of this magical musical. Can’t recommend highly enough.
ONE WORD AMAZING
Α fantastic show for children and grown-ups. A must-see amazing production (from music to the sets and actors) in a very beautiful venue. We loved Michael James Scott's performance, however the whole cast give their best on the stage. Highly recommended!!!
My girlfriend and I went to watch and have to say, absolutely breathtaking. Definitely the best showing I have ever seen and its sad that its all ending after August. Hope it comes back because its too outstanding for the show to end. If you havent seen it yet, i highly recommend you toooo. BEST SHOWWW ALADDIN.
great rendition of Aladdin genie had a very good booming voice which illuminated the performance the jokes costumes lighting were very good the rest of the cast lacked the voice clarity expected in a west end show thoroughly enjoyed it though and would recommend it
Could see everything, actors were superb!! Could only wish that we bought the tickets so we can view from the stalls!! Was hilarious and better than the film!
We set in GB1.1 and GB1.2 in the boxes, the website said that we will need to bend over a little bit, but even when we did, and not a little bit we couldn’t see the show properly. Part of the stage was unseen. And it defently effected my expirience. These seats wasn’t worth the price.
I’ve seen better shows I wouldn’t recommend it,
A perfect family night out with lots of dancing, amazing outfits and a talented cast. Was 100% worth it, our daughter was amazed throughout, especially during the magic carpet ride. Really brought the magic of Disney to life on stage, with a few Easter eggs for the adults!
We enjoyed the show but it fell a little short for us as we had recently seen the new Aladdin film and the storyline in the show was very simplistic in comparison. The costumes and set were stunning and the cast were fabulous. The show had a pantomime feel and was very suitable for children.
Amazing show production and the actors were the best, will definitely Go and see it again
This show is coming to the end of its run and for me, personally, I felt that some of the performances were a bit tired. Sorry, Aladdin but I thought you were actually over rehearsed and looked like you were just going through the motions, the same songs, moves, scenes you had done so many times before. I am a dance teacher and fully understand the amount of work goes into a production like this so I am sorry to be a bit negative. Some of the scenery was a bit out of proportion and I missed some of the dialogue. The special effects were well done (genie/magic carpet) and overall it was colourful and fast moving.
Funny, entertaining and just a magical fun night overall, recommend to all
Out of this world, enjoyed every minute
The most Amazing, magical and energetic show I’ve seen in years . The staging is incredible. Just loved every minuet of it. Thank you .
