Artist Spotlight - Chad Beguelin

The countdown to Broadway continues this week as Disney Theatrical release the second video in their Artist Spotlight series!

This time it's the turn of writer and lyricist Chad Beguelin who talks about going back to Howard Ashman's original treatment and bringing something new to the stage version of Aladdin.

When I saw the show in Utah I was amazed at how well Chad Beguelin's book managed to work in so many of the lost Howard Ashman elements (from characters to songs to the tone of the show) whilst still staying true to the heart of the film that so many people grew up with.  He's truly done a fantastic job and from what I've heard out of Toronto the show has only gotten stronger during its preview run

Previews of Aladdin: Broadway's New Musical Comedy begin 26th February and tickets are now on sale from the show's official site.
