Ring Bells, Bang the Drums! Aladdin is Going on Tour!!
If you can't make it to New York then the magic carpet is coming to you!
Disney Theatrical today announced the North American Tour of Aladdin! The first stop on this magic carpet ride is a 12 week engagement in Chicago at the Cadillac Palace Theatre from April 11 to July 2 2017 with future venues still to be announced.
Disney Theatrical's Thomas Schumacher announced the tour saying "We've had the privilege of entertaining more than one million people in New York City with Casey Nicholaw's glorious production. I am delighted that audiences in Chicago and throughout North America will soon have the opportunity to experience Aladdin in their own back yards."
"Aladdin will be the fourth new production we've launched in Chicago in 16 years. Chicago's canny audiences, its theatrical infrastructure and its stunning theatres make it a peerless town for creating new productions. We are thrilled to return with Aladdin."
Lou Raizin, President of Broadway in Chicago, added "We are excited Chicago will be the first North American city outside of New York to see Aladdin."
Group bookings (for 15 people or more) are now on sale and you can find more details at the show's official website http://www.aladdinthemusical.com/tour where you can also sign up for email updates.
Call me sentimental but I really hope that Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre is one of the stops on the tour!
