I was disappointed the first time I saw the Aladdin stage show in DCA when I heard the "One Jump Ahead" song.
The part where he says
"You're my only friend, Abu!" Was completely cut out and the way they chose to do it sounds really awkward and badly transitioned to those of us who are big fans of the Disney songs and know all the words
From then on, Abu was never mentioned or shown in the show.
They have a Iago puppet dude for Jafar, so why not Abu puppet? How hard would that have been?
I'm a bit confused as to why they completely left him out the entire show, if somebody could shine some light on the reason that would be great.
Show some love for the monkey.
