Shining, Shimmering, Splendid
As the cast and crew of Aladdin: The New Stage Musical go through their final rehearsal before the curtain goes up in front of their first audience, I'm delighted to announce that 5th Avenue have released the full video of the Aladdin Spotlight Night held last month at the Paramount Theatre!
Hosted by David Armstrong (Producing Artistic Director at The 5th), the video runs nearly an hour and features interviews with Steve Fickinger (VP Creative Development for Disney Theatrical), Chad Beguelin (Writer, Lyricist), and the cast of Aladdin: The New Stage Musical.
We've been treated to some of the footage before ("Why Me?", "Babkak, Omar, Aladdin, Kassim", James' interview) but the full video contains much more discussion with the cast and two additional performances; "Call Me a Princess" and "A Whole New World"!! The performance is amazing, and if that was Adam when he feels under the weather, I can only imagine how good he'll be on stage tonight!
I'll take this opportunity to once again say good luck to all involved tonight.
It's show time!
