A special news round up this week as the Daily Herald has published an interview with Courtney Reed. In the interview Courtney talks about her Broadway debut in Mamma Mia, what led her to become an actress and, of course, playing Princess Jasmine in Aladdin.
Disney's official blog has posted a sneak preview of the upcoming merchandise for the show. Looks like I'll be getting a few new t-shirts in New York! The merchandise for Aladdin will be available at the New Amsterdam Theatre when the show opens and also (I believe) online via the Disney Store.
And finally, this week Disney Theatrical have announced that Rush Tickets for the show will be $32.50. These tickets will go on sale the day of the performance and are limited to 2 tickets per guest. Seating locations will be at the theatre's discretion and Rush Tickets may not be available for every performance. You can read the full announcement at Playbill.
Tickets for Aladdin are now on sale at the show's official website. Previews begin February 26th with the official Opening Night on 20th March.
