Broadway's Aladdin on TV & The Actors Fund Celebrates 20 Years of Disney on Broadway

On Tuesday 15th April Broadway's Aladdin will be making two very special appearances on ABC.  First they will be performing Arabian Nights on "Good Morning America" and then Prince Ali on "The View".  Playbill is reporting that there will also be a first look preview on "Good Morning America" on Monday 14th.

But it gets better!  If you live in New York and can get to the New Amsterdam Theatre that morning then the show's official website is offering you and five friends the chance to be part of the audience for this live recording!  And if that wasn't enough everyone who attends will receive a special gift and one audience member will receive a pair of tickets for that evening's performance of the show!  So head on over to for your chance to be a part of this special event!

That evening will also see Director and Choreographer Casey Nicholaw appear on ABC's "Nightline" along with stars Adam Jacobs, Courtney Reed, James Monroe Iglehart and Jonathan Freeman.

I'm just going to cross my fingers and hope that Disney Theatrical puts these up on their YouTube channel since we don't get ABC here in the UK.

And speaking of special events at the New Amsterdam Theatre, D23 is reporting that on Monday 27th April the theatre will play host to a special gala celebrating the 20th anniversary of Disney on Broadway.  This one night only event to benefit The Actors Fund will showcase the very best of Disney on Broadway with special cast appearances and production numbers from all of Disney's shows from 1994's Beauty and the Beast through to 2014's Aladdin.  Tickets range from the special low priced $20 for 20 years balcony tickets right through to $1500 full gala tickets which include the post-show cast party.  Tickets are available from The Actors Fund website.

I will be doing (hopefully sooner rather than later) a big round up of all the reviews and news that I missed whilst I've been away but obviously this piece was time sensitive so it jumped to the front of the queue!
