It's a Combination which Works Me Up to Fever Pitch!

Hey everyone!  Sorry it's been so long since my last post, it's been a busy week!  Whilst there's nothing new to report about the show's future, there's still some news to be reported from the show's Seattle run.  On that note, check out this interview Inside the Magic conducted with Jonathan Freeman at the end of last month;

Credit for the find goes to Princess of Agrabah from Aladdin Central.  The interview starts around the 17 minute mark and contains some new images of Jonathan Freeman as Jafar in the show!

Also, make sure you check out Adam Jacobs' website which he's now updated with photos from Aladdin: The New Stage Musical.  We've seen most of them before, but there are a few nice new photos including this beautiful shot of Adam and Courtney as Aladdin and Jasmine;

And if you want a fan's review of the show make sure you check out the Agrabah LiveJournal (well technically the review's on Rosanna's LiveJournal, but it's all good)!  But be warned there are lots of spoilers as this review covers the show from start to finish, telling you EVERYTHING you want to know about the story, the changes, the characters, etc.

I think that's just about it this time around!  Remember, if you're in New York you can catch Jonathan Freeman and Andrew Keenan-Bolger in Mary Poppins (but be quick, AKB will be taking another "break" next month to star in the World Premiere Production of Newsies!), James Monroe Iglehart in Memphis and from next month Adam Jacobs will be taking on the lead role of Simba in The Lion King.  Tickets for all are available via the links, but if you're in New York then do yourself a favour and go to the theatre box office, you can use the money you save on fees to get something nice from the show merchandise stand.  If I find out what the rest of the cast are doing I'll be sure to post it here!

Oh, and one last thing!  Can't believe I almost forgot this!  If you live in the UK and can get to London on either 3rd or 10th September then make sure you book tickets to see Aladdin on the big screen at BFI Southbank as part of their "The Disney 50" Season!  I think this might be the first time Aladdin's been on the big screen in the UK since it's original release here back in 1993, so make sure not to miss this fantastic event!
