I went with my 25 daughter and we both thought it was absolutely brilliant.
The genie stole the show he was really funny and very entertaining.
The costumes , scenery’s and special effects were outstanding.
We enjoyed all of the musical.
My only complaint was the cold air coming from the vents in the floor i did find it chilly,but maybe it was me.
I would go back and watch it again

Brilliant musical, the best one we've seen so far. Colourful, beautiful, funny and witty. Gene deserves 5*

As Kathi C mentioned in her review, the entrance foyer is a little small, so when the doors open it gets a little cramped while waiting for the bar to open for a pre-show drink...however there is another “lounge” bar upstairs near the Dress Circle entrance. I do not recall seeing this bar being signposted and it took a little while before the lady setting up in the foyer bar mentioned it as she would be about another 5 minutes before she would be open.
We went upstairs as we were sitting in the Dress Circle anyway, very funny guy working that bar last night (Sat 31st March), decided to just get a bottle of water for now and order the drinks for the interval.
My husband likes to get theatre tickets for the Saturday of Easter weekend and previously, at various theatre shows have sat in the stalls, usually 6-8 rows from the front so the Dress Circle seemed very high in comparison but it afforded a fantastic view of the entire stage.
The show was brilliant, a great but relatively small cast involving some frequent & rapid costume changes (keep your eye on Tarisha Rommick as the fortune teller/attendant/ensemble, she pops up everywhere!)
Apart from the fact the show (& obviously the Disney animation) is named after one character I think the genie has the “it” factor and Trevor Dion Nicholas is certainly a great genie!!
As with all shows of this type (and particularly on a holiday Saturday) you run the risk of it being spoiled by people talking (don’t get me started on Lion King a few years ago!) and unfortunately we had a family of four immediately in front of us where mum sat one side and dad on the other and the little boy & girl kept talking to each other or mum or dad, not all the time but enough to be distracting. I just wish the parents would at least try to a little harder :/
Despite the distraction, the show was brilliant, with bright colourful costumes and clever sets & sitting up high you get a better perspective on how the sets move & evolve too!

The show was incredible. The costumes, scenery and effects were breath taking and beautiful. The cast did the songs and story line all the justice that this Disney classic deserves. The scene of the magic carpet ride was the most unbelievable sight... sadly it was at this time that a steward (on some kind of delusional power trip) came over and started flashing his light in our faces. He began asking us not to take pictures, we kindly explained, showing our empty hands, that we are not taking pictures. He then continued to say "Delete them!" and "I saw you!" . . . . funny that, since we WEREN'T TAKING PICTURES. Once he realised he made a mistake he apologised and left but the damage was done we had missed the very scene that we had been looking forward to since we booked these (very expensive) tickets.

Finally got to see Aladdin with the kids and the rest of the family and what a treat it was! The theatre itself is easily accessible by a number of tube stations and is surrounded by places to eat. It’s a beautiful venue, a classic London theatre with what look like original fixtures and decor, which in themselves are worth a look. Keeping in mind the age of the venue, it’s not particularly roomy. My very tall nephews had a struggle not to knee the people in front of them so anyone tall may want to pick an aisle seat! Then there was the show, it’s an adaptation of the Disney classic, a family favourite, and we were not disappointed. The sets and costumes are incredible, bright and dazzling. All of great songs from the film are included, and more. It’s actually quite a small cast which makes all the costume changes even more impressive. The genie is simply amazing as are the routines and the magic carpet moment is magic. We were a group from small kids to grown ups and we all left singing. Amazing.
