Presse

Les critiques sont très bonnes:

"The production’s relentless razzle-dazzle and its anything-for-a-laugh spirit also infuse the show with a winking suggestion: If you can’t be yourself, just be fabulous." Charles Isherwood for New York Times

"The production’s best special effect isn’t the carpet, but the rollicking and endearingly over-the-top turn by James Monroe Iglehart ('Memphis'), who handles Robin Williams’ role as the genie. With nonstop joking, fist bumps, declarations of 'Oh snap!' and nimble dance moves and smooth vocals, Iglehart shines with enough charisma to light a thousand and one nights." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"Disney’s new 'Aladdin' doesn’t quite catch lightning in a bottle — but it lets a pretty nifty genie out of a lamp." Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

"For a child who's never seen a show before, the bright colors and broad silliness might be fun, but their adults will likely find it a teeth-grinding experience (although many dads will be diverted by Princess Jasmine's plunging necklines)." Robert Feldberg for The Record

"This is a wonderful adaptation filled with color, charm and loads of theatrical magic." Roma Torre for NY1

"The magic carpet flies smoothly and so does the rest of 'Aladdin', a buoyant musical comedy fashioned from the 1992 Disney animated feature." Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

"While it doesn't rival the imagination or innovation of 'The Lion King', the show's ebullient comic spirit should make it a popular hit." David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

"Casey Nicholaw... stylistically turns the film’s romantic fairy-tale adventure into shtick comedy." Marilyn Stasio for Variety

Quelques commentaires

Differences between the musical and film
The Genie replaces the absent Peddler as the narrator for the opening of the show.
Abu the monkey and Rajah the tiger are excluded from the show.
Iago is not a parrot, but is played by a real man as seen on stage. He is also arrested after Jafar's defeat instead of being dragged inside a lamp by his master when Jafar wishes to become a genie.
Jafar's henchman, Gazeem, does not make an appearance in the show.
Aladdin is given three partners named Babkak, Omar, and Kassim. He is also given a scene where he remembers his mother.
The Genie makes fewer references to popular culture and instead is given a Cab Calloway-esque persona.
Aladdin's second wish is used to free him and his friends from capture, not to stop him from drowning as it is in the movie.
Jafar's second wish is to be Sultan, instead of the most powerful sorcerer in the world.
Jafar's banishment of Aladdin to a frozen wasteland, followed by the carpet's rescue of Aladdin, is cut from the show.

 

Historique du musical

Génèse du musical

In November 2010 Alan Menken confirmed that a musical theatre adaptation of the movie was in the works with a book written by Chad Beguelin. The musical premiered in Seattle, Washington, at the 5th Avenue Theatre from July 7–31, 2011. Jonathan Freeman, who voiced Jafar in the film, played the role in the stage adaptation. Adam Jacobs and Courtney Reed played Aladdin and Jasmine. Additional cast included James Monroe Iglehart as Genie; Clifton Davis as the Sultan; Don Darryl Rivera as Iago; and, playing Omar, Kassim and Babkak, a trio of characters originally conceived by the film's creators but not used, were Andrew Keenan-Bolger, Brian Gonzales and Brandon O'Neill, respectively. The show was directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw.

In 2012, productions of the musical played at the Tuacahn Amphitheatre in Ivins, Utah from June–October 2012 and the The Muny in St. Louis in July 2012. In 2012, Aladdin was staged in Manila, the Philippines at the Meralco Theater. Directed by Bobby Garcia and Chari Arespacochaga, it starred Tom Rodriguez as Aladdin and featured Aiza Seguerra as Genie. The musical was staged in Spanish in Bogotá, Colombia in 2013.

Aladdin had a pre-Broadway tryout at the Ed Mirvish Theatre in Toronto, Ontario from November 2013 to January 2014. Nicholaw again directed and choreographed, with book and additional lyrics by Beguelin, scenic design by Bob Crowley, and costume design by Gregg Barnes.

The musical premiered on Broadway on February 26, 2014 in previews and officially opened on March 20, 2014 at the New Amsterdam Theatre, taking the place of Mary Poppins. The show was nominated for five Tony Awards, winning one for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical for James Monroe Iglehart. The cast album was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album.
