Looking back now it seems hard to believe that when the show premiered Broadway was just a dream in the hearts of fans and cast alike. Whilst the show may have needed some creative magic to reach its full potential, Aladdin won the hearts of Seattle audiences who saw it for the diamond in the rough that it was.
Happy anniversary to the cast and creative team of Aladdin, past and present, and to everyone at The 5th Avenue for starting this amazing journey that proves wishes really do come true!
Aladdin played at The 5th Avenue Theatre 7-31 July 2011 and is currently making Disney magic at Broadway's New Amsterdam Theatre in New York where I can't wait to see it again!
