Took my mum here as part of her 50th birthday celebrations! And it was absolutely fantastic! I paid just less than £180.00 for two tickets! (stalls row K seats 21&22)And even though I was abit apprehensive about paying so much I can tell you it was worth every penny!!!! The cast are fantastic!!! And the special effects are brilliant! Would highly recommend!.

This was such fun spending the afternoon to see the musical Aladdin.
The show was fast, dazzling, sparkling and very funny. The genie was fantastic to watch.
And the music is so recognizable so you spontaneously start to sing a long.

If you're looking for a very visual production, with great sets and costumes, this is certainly the show to see. However, the fact that the sets and costumes are so great, can only go some way in disguising the fact that this is a very poor production of a popular Disney classic for the West End. Unfortunately, it felt like I was in my local theatre watching a Christmas pantomime, except with West End Prices, but without the man in drag playing Widow Twanky and the audience shouting "He's behind you"
The lead actor/actress can't sing or act, considering it's their craft, with Aladdin being marginally better than Jasmine. The substitution of the monkey for the 3 stooges added nothing to the storyline, and their attempts at being funny wore incredibly thin very quickly! As for Jafar, he was perhaps the worst part of the show. He was an incredibly camp pantomime villain, which wouldn't have been too bad if I was expecting to see a pantomime. The actor however seemed like a pretty decent actor and could have done the role justice, if the writing had been better. The Genie wasn't too bad, but instead of trying to make the Genie their own, the writers tried to create an artificial version of Robbin Williams which obviously is impossible. As a result, the one-liners and gags not only fell flat as the show progressed, but got very annoying, very quickly. I'd probably say he was the best character, but only because the others were so awful.
As for the second half of the show, it ended so abruptly, you'd be forgiven for not being too sure if the show was over or not which was also very disappointing, especially as the second half didn't really culminate in anything other than a damp squib.
In all, if you want to see a show that is all style and no substance, this is certainly the West End show for you. If you want to see something that has both style and substance i'd save your money and see the Lion King, if you haven't done so already.

One of the best shows I've seen in many years. Unleash your inner child and treat yourself to a ticket . Only downside is the ticket prices, way too expensive... but it has to be seen. Enjoy .

My husband and I absolutely loved Aladdin! This show was amazing, my favourite show after seeing The Lion King and Wicked- this show was just one step further and amused us! The cave song and scene was WOW!!!! Gutted couldn’t record it, would love to go back and watch it again! Was quite a lot of kids in the screening too they would love it also. This show is for all ages!
