It's All So Magical

Just a quick update today, as I found this video on youtube and just had to share!  Adam Jacobs talks with Stage Rush about playing Aladdin in Aladdin: The New Stage Musical.

And if you can get to New York make sure to check out The Lion King where Adam is currently starring as Simba!  And TONIGHT (sorry for the late notice) he is performing in PhilDev Celebrates Broadway: Suites by Sondheim alongside the original Princess Jasmine, Lea Salonga!  The event starts at 7:30pm at the Alice Tully Hall at 1941 Broadway (65th street between Broadway and Amsterdam) and tickets are still available here and I'm assuming at the box office as well.  This is a benefit concert with all proceeds going to the Philippine Development Foundation, so if you can get there at such short notice make sure you go, you'll hear some great music performed by very talented artists and help a good cause all at the same time.


  1. Hi! Just found your blog! Do you know if the music is available yet? Either sheet music or recordings? I'm preparing for an audition and would love to be familiar with the show and maybe even audition with a song from it! THANKS!


  2. Hi Erin

    Sorry it's taken me so long to respond!

    I'm afraid that at the moment there's nothing like that available from the show. As Disney developed the show with the intention of licensing it out there's a very good chance that the sheet music will be released at some poiint in the future (though probably not this year as they're only licensing 2 regional productions).

    A Seattle Cast CD is my absolute dream, but at this point it seems like it will remain that way. There was no studio recording done for the show. However, it is very likely that an archive recording of the production exists (I'm assuming this, or at least parts of it, would be made available to those licensing the show for reference) though it's very unlikely that Disney would take audio from this to make a CD. The best hope is for the show to be extremely popular in this years regional productions and for Disney to decide they want to take the show (and as much of the original cast as possible) to Broadway as that would pretty much guarantee a CD.
