Rousuck's Review: Disney's "Aladdin" at the Hippodrome
Theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck joins Tom for another of her weekly reviews of the Maryland stage, and today she spotlights the spectacular new musical production of Disney's Aladdin, the Broadway touring show now brightening the stage at Baltimore's Hippodrome Theatre.
Based on Disney's Oscar-winning 1992 animated film of the same name (which was also adapted earlier this year into a live action version), the Broadway musical adaptation retains Aladdin's successful creative elements: the Alan Menken music, and the lyrics by Howard Ashman, Tim Rice and Chad Beguelin, who also wrote the original book.
The lavish touring stage production is directed and choreographed at the Hippodrome by Casey Nicholaw, with scenic design by Bob Crowley, and featuring a nearly forty-member cast led by Jonah Ho'okano as Aladdin, Kaenaonalani Kekoa as Jasmine, and Korie Lee Blossey as Genie.
Disney's Aladdin continues at Baltimore's Hippodrome Theatre through Sunday, December 1st. Ticket info here.
