Saw Aladdin the cast and show was wonderful, I highly recommend seeing the show! Chairs were a little crowded, not much leg room.

Took my 8 year old niece to watch Aladdin. They offer booster seats for young kids which is great. Since the theater is not so big any seat is a good seat. The Alladin cast is amazing, enjoyed every moment. If you buy tickets from...More

This theatre provides an excellent nostalgic feel to the whole experience of going to a live show on Broadway. The actual show was outstanding and the experience was memorable.

As expected, a great production on broadway. Genie stole the show (as he should...!) very genuine to the origins film meaning the songs and story was familiar and easy to follow for anyone who has seen the origins film.

You can take photos of the theater before or after the show. Most productions do not allow photos of any kind to be taken during a performance.
