Just a quick follow up of the article I posted earlier this week about Disney’s Aladdin the Stage Musical. This news comes to us from The Seattle Times.
The stage version of the Disney animated musical “Aladdin” will have its world-premiere run at the 5th Avenue Theatre July 7-31 in Seattle.
Set to direct and choreograph is Casey Nicholaw, the director-choreographer of the Broadway musicals “The Drowsy Chaperone” and the recent “Elf: The Broadway Musical.” Nicholaw has also choreographed “My Fair Lady” and “The Prince and the Pauper” at 5th Avenue.
The 5th Avenue describes “Aladdin” as “a loving homage to the Hope-Crosby road pictures with a score invoking the jazz sound of stars like Cab Calloway and Fats Waller.” Some songs from the original score that did not wind up in the movie will be included in the stage production.
Other Broadway veterans set to participate in the show are set designer Anna Louizos, costume designer Gregg Barnes and lighting designer Natasha Katz.
