The musical comedy “Aladdin” is coming to DeVos Performance Hall January 16-21, 2024. Presented by Broadway Grand Rapids, tickets for the long-awaited engagement are now on sale.
Based on Disney’s hilarious 1992 animated hit that starred Robin Williams as Genie, “Aladdin” follows the adventures of a young man who is granted three wishes, a story that his its roots in “One Thousand and One Nights” (aka “Arabian Nights”), a collection of classic Arabic folktales.
This newest incarnation of the timeless tale began in New York City’s New Amsterdam Theatre in 2014, offering audiences a thrill ride packed with comedy, romance, and plenty of toe-tapping music. Featuring songs from an Academy Award-winning soundtrack, and more music written especially for the stage, the Broadway production has received widespread critical acclaim, and is touted as one of the biggest new blockbusters of recent years. The current North American tour has played in over 40 cities to more than a half million people so far. A previous tour played to an additional nearly 3 million patrons.
Disney’s Aladdin is 2.5 hours (including intermission) and recommended for children ages 6 and up.
