Disney's ALADDIN In Chicago

Maggie and I had the pleasure of experiencing Disney's Aladdin in Chicago at the Cadillac Palace Theater last week. It is a breathtaking spectacle that will leave you asking "How did they do that?" every step of the way!
Featuring the 5 original songs from the animated movie, you're in for a treat. Never Had A Friend Like Me was one of the highlights of the show. The Genie lights up the stage for a full 13 minutes and it is AMAZING! I don't think I stopped smiling for a moment of it.
I was blown away by how they not only brought the essence of what made the movie so beloved, BUT the musical makes it it's own. Every character lights up the stage. Jafar and Yago, diabolically hilarious.
I was completely swept away by A Whole New World. My daughter and I sat there with our jaws on the floor wondering HOW they got a magic carpet to fly. Was I watching an amazing Vegas magician? HOW DID THEY DO THAT?! Every set, every costume, every choreographed moment is a treat for your senses. It is a colorful stunning masterpiece of a musical.
Aladdin was a staple when my kids were little and I LOVED experiencing the muscial with Maggie. It really is something I will treasure for years to come. Check out the North American Tour on their website. You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter. If it's coming to your town, treat yourself and take the family. Truly Disney at it's finest.

*Thanks so much to Broadway in Chicago for having me. While I was comped tickets to this event, all opinions and experiences are my own.
