If Disney's "Aladdin" can appear at the New Amsterdam theatre on Broadway,
then 45-minute versions "Mary Poppins" and Julie Taymor's "The Lion King"
can have 3-year runs in DCA.
For your convenience if you have one of the comments below you can just write 1, 2, or 3, and with #3 you can list the play you'd prefer.
1. "But I don't think 'The Lion King' would work at 45 minutes."
2. "But I love 'Aladdin,' and the Genie makes it fresh, and I want it to stay for ____more years."
(How long has it been running in DCA, btw?)
3. "But I want 'Frozen,' 'Toy Story,' 'Pocahontas,' 'The Jungle Book,' 'Song of the South,' 'Snowball Express,' 'John Carter,' 'Cars 2' or ___ on stage."
