    Aladdin heading to Broadway in '14

    Sorry for a new thread, but the old one has been closed.

    Anyway, update time...

    Mary Poppins, one of the Disney shows currently on Broadway, will be closing in March to leave a space open for Jasmine, Genie and Jafar. However, while a musical version of Aladdin has been touring the country over the past few years, it turns out the eventual Broadway production – likely to open in 2014 – will be an overhaul of that current version.
    The version of “Aladdin” that hits Broadway next year will be substantially overhauled and will not be a transfer of the 5th Avenue production…That show was seen as a pilot production, designed to test the new book and additional score material. The Broadway production will involve a major new key player on the creative team, the individual said.

    You can imagine the overhaul will likely be more on the visual side than musical side, attempting to up the spectacle in the competitive Broadway market place. As it stands now, the musical has four songs that weren’t in the movie: “Proud of your Boy,” a song that was written for the movie, cut, and now resides in the stage musical as well as ”Call Me A Princess,” “Babkak, Omar, Aladdin, Kassim” and “High Adventure.”
