    Our Extremely Hilarious "Aladdin" Performance

    Okay so we just saw today (January 31)'s 5:50 PM performance of Aladdin at California Adventure. In the Mezzanine section, there was this one far-left section of people (they filled up the entire 50 seats or so) that had people with some common identity...don't know what it was lol.

    Anyways, during the scene (after "A Whole New World") where Aladdin mentions how he can't give Genie his last wish to set him free, that entire section started booing Aladdin for not giving Genie his wish!! (realizes this is a humongous section of people simultaneously booing). Genie and Aladdin became quiet for a bit, before Genie said "Are there cows in the theater or something?" (Aladdin tried to hide a smile at this point). The group continued to boo, at which point it became infectious and most of the theater was booing Aladdin for not holding up his end of the deal to Genie!

    After the crowd quieted down, the Genie said "WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?? He (pointing at Aladdin) is the good guy! Gooood guuuuuy!! If you gotta boo someone, boo at Jafar! Heeeee's the baaad guuuy!!"

    So the scene finally continued on, until the part where Genie transforms Jafar into the Sultan. His dialogue went something like this:
    "Poof. You're the Sultan. (Crowd starts booing loudly, calms after about a minute)." At this point, Genie points at Jafar and everyone starts booing again, and stops when he puts his fingers down. He points at Jafar again, and everyone starts booing again. Then he pointed at himself, and everyone loudly screamed with joy. Then he started his routine: Pointing at Jafar twice, then pointing at himself, so it souded something like: "BOO-BOO-YEAH! BOO-BOO-YEAH! BOO-BOO-YEAH!" (try saying it outloud to get the full effect). The chant resembled something along the lines of the opening of the song "We Will Rock You" by Queen, so Genie started singing "Buddy youre a boy make a big noise..."! After the applause and laughter died down, Genie gracefully made his transition into the "Are we through yet?" part.

    It may sound absurd in words, but for anyone that was there, you would know how excellent it sounded. I don't know who that large group was, but humungous kudos to Genie for his ingenious ad-libbing (and to Jafar for dutifully laughing during the total of about 4 minutes of booing).

    I've had this happen before too, a few weeks ago when I saw the show. Guess a lot of people boo Aladdin at that point :P

    sounds funny but also annoying and rude for a large group of people disrupting the show for guests that could have been seeing the show for a first time.

    I love how the Genie improvises even through crowd reaction. Great and funny story!

    I love Genie's improv..... I was there Fri for the 4:15 show and he was standing next to Jafar and someone screamed "we love you Genie!!" Genie laughs and told Jafar... "they love me, you... not so much..." He went on with "the Bird is the word" bit that had some of the other actors turning their faces so you can't see them laughing

    He was at his best last night, too. At the 5:50 show.

    1. The Genie told Aladdin he couldn't wish for any more wishes, "just like Blagojevich."

    2. Then, at the Sultan pepper shaker part, Genie and Jafar did their typical stares at each other, and Jafar starts staring at the crowd. Genie then said, "You have too much eye liner. Did you learn that from Amy Winehouse?"
    Jafar snapped his neck at Genie and his mouth dropped. If he could have talked at that point, you know it would have been: "What did you just say?"

    3. During the stairs scene, the Genie said, "This is better than any Super Bowl halftime show!"

    Great stuff.
