The Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye is back with more rumours about the upcoming West End production of Aladdin and, if he's right, we now know who will be bringing Aladdin and Jasmine to life in London next year!
According to Bamigboye Dean John-Wilson (From Here to Eternity, Here Lies Love) and Jade Ewen (In the Heights) are in early talks to play the classic Disney couple.
Disney Theatrical declined to comment, telling the Daily Mail that "deals aren't done and we won't be announcing the full cast for some time." Bamigboye speculates that a cast announcement may come on November 23rd when tickets officially go on sale. I'd love that to be the case but I think it'll be later. The Broadway production didn't announce its cast until the first day of rehearsals so based on that I'm not expecting the announcement to come until next year. But I'd love to be wrong!
Priority tickets for Aladdin are now on sale (guess what I'm booking tonight!) and general ticket sales begin November 23rd! For more details check out www.aladdinthemusical.co.uk
