I go to the theatre every summer with my family, and this is one of the best I’ve seen. The singing and dancing was incredible, and the set absolutely beautiful. The genie was by far our favourite, such a great performance.
Lively, exciting and colourful show- I didn’t like it I loved it😁
Very happy with the show!
The play was excellent but the setting was not
Excellent show,great set and costumes. Seats were good,last 2 in row T and U despite saying that there may be a problem with overhang of upper circle. Our main problem was rude people in front on their phones and chatting throughout the first half. Staff handled it well but why would you pay for a show and be on the phone?
AMAZED AND BLOWN AWAY! ALL THE ACTORS WERE PHENOMENAL AND THE DANCERS!!! THEY CHANGED COSTUMES SOO QUICK IT FELT LIKE A MAGIC SHOW XD the boy playing Aladdin had barely any breaks and HIS VOICE KEPT STEADY AND PERFECT, really good casting overall. The only improvement I would say is to add a tiger plushie in jasmine's room for a symbolism.
Great show - well worth a watch.
This show was everything I expected and more. Brilliant choreography, great acting , funny and exciting. The costumes and scenery stunning well worth seeing . Well done team Aladdin a fabulous evening.
Excellent show. Would definitely recommend. We loved the sets!
It was not at all what I expected, the genie was the best part. Didn’t enjoy it and Jasmin isn’t very good at all.
A wonderful production, with fabulous scenery and amazing special effects. The magic carpet, was awe inspiring, not a cable in sight. It must be some sort of drone! The dancing and choreography was outstanding. The singing, was good enough, but not as strong as many musicals I have seen.
Very disappointed. The genie was irritating.Alladin was dull. I liked the settings, choreography and dancing, though it was a bit Bollywood. Suitable for children, not adults. Should have guessed with Disney involved. Had hoped for a magical experience and didn't get it
I would like to right a great review of Alladin, unfortunately if it wasn’t for the genie we would not had stayed after the interval, mediocre songs and disjointed scenes made the show very hard to follow.
The gini was amazing the whole cast was really good the costumes were gorgeous the show was spectacular it’s the 2nd time I’ve been. The band was great!
We were delighted with the degree of talent from all the cast, whether singing, dancing, doing acrobatics or making us laugh. The orchestra sounded to be having a ball even though they could probably play the score in their sleep. Excellent costumes, sets and special effects.
Amazing show from start to finish, great cast
actually, it was fantastic and imazing show thank you
I loved the entire performance! The actors were amazing, especially the Genie. The stage itself was incredible, it honestly felt like watching a movie rather than a theatre performance. I absolutely loved it and would highly recommend it.
What a fantastic show and a very lovely theatre.
The staging of the show is amazing, especially the treasure cave and the flying magic carpet scenes, but it often feels ad if the orchestra and performers are fighting each other to be the loudest and shoutiest. The genie was everything a human version of Robin William’s cartoon should be, and stole the show., and the rest of the characters were excellent. Well worth the ticket price.
It was one of the last bigger Musical tittles from west end I have not seen and I didn't had high expectations, but the show blew me away with great cast (specially genie), amazing costumes and choreography and with few impressing visuals.
A really good toe tapping, light hearted family entertainment. Well worth watching. Very sad it’s finishing soon as would of definitely watched again.
A wonderful evening out with the family. Great performances by all especially the main characters Good wholesome family entertainment - make sure you don’t miss the opportunity with only a few performances to go.
An incredible night with a 7 and a 9 year old! They loved it!!!
I think that Aladdin is a wonderful musical and the character of the Genie was quite a statement. If there was any improvement this could have been made on our first impressions as the staff on arrival were shouting instructions which was rather stressful and uninviting. But the show made up for it - it was amazing throughout and got better and better. We particularly enjoyed the element of comedy in the show - it reminded us a bit of Pantomime!
If we could have showed you our 9 year old boys face, they stopped for an interval and he was hypnotised and didn't notice that we were staring at him for 30 seconds and the play had stopped
From start to finish this production will have you captivated. Everything from the singing, dancing, music to the set is fantastic. And as for the Genie, well he just made the show! I want to see it again!
A superb performance from everyone. Mesmerised by the magic carpet! Definitely worth another visit. Hope it tours as I live in Lancashire.
First 5 minutes and I’m thinking this is not quite right, it’s not like a musical I’ve seen before. I Thought, it’s going to get better, hes just trying to warm the crowd up. How wrong was I, it got worse. I stayed until the interval and decided to leave. It’s more of a pantomime than a musical and I’m not the only one to agree. As we had pre ordered drinks for the interval we had them, whilst drinking our drink we heard another woman saying exactly the same thing that we thought. We haven’t come to see a Panto! Worst musical I’ve ever seen!
Great show me and my daughter had the best time great seats as well
Absolutely brilliant show the genie is hilarious really made everybody laugh the whole show is one for any age funny from start to finish
Waited so long to see this! Had an outstanding night. The genie stole the show! The magic was executed really well and I thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
The positives, the genie was perfect, such humour and really brought the performance to the audience. The three mates of Aladdin were also perfect and added a sense of light heartedness, importance, and fondness to the Aladdin story. The signature song, a whole new world, whilst sang well didn’t really lift me the way I thought it would. That however is the only bad word I have to say about the performance. Ignorant and rude audience members sat next to us unfortunately marred the show a little, constantly talking and messaging on their phones. But that can not be helped.
Amazing production from start to finish I highly recommend to see it any age group.
The play was ok.
Such a fantastic show. One of my favourites. Took my 6year old granddaughter she loved it. Had great seats row A dress circle and she was given a booster cushion
Indistinct music. Mainly consists of scenes of "rejoicing" on a large scale.
Really really one fantastic spectacle. Everything beautiful. I loved ❣
Myself plus two teenage girls. We loved the show, so colourful and full of life. The Genie was an absolute delight. The time passed so quickly, that’s a sure sign of a great show. All three of us would have loved to have a grand finale of the whole cast singing A Whole New World , excellent.
Aladdin was everything we hoped it would be and more! An amazing cast and fantastic costumes! It was spectacular the whole family loved it
A wonderful show in a lovely theatre, we all really enjoyed it.
Grandaughters birthday treat. Great seats in the boxes but it looked like wherever you were in the stalls would be fine. Lots of laughs and good songs and choreography.
The genie was a genius
Who doesn’t love a good Disney musical! It was bright, sparkly, funny, mushy and entertaining, everything you could want! I would definitely recommend getting the box at the back of the stalls for seating! The whole experience was amazing!
My daughter and I had a fantastic evening at the St Edward Theatre enjoying watching and getting lost in the story of Aladdin. The cast were spectacular and the Genie utterly amazing. The sets are beautifully designed and are moved around wonderfully well. The scene where Aladdin and Jasmine are taking flight on the magic carpet was awesome and you were lost in that moment. Wonderful story telling and exquisite costumes and sets. Before this show ends, don’t be disappointed and go and treat yourself.
Excellent day out and really enjoyed the show
I've been 4 times now, once for a friend's birthday, once with family, once with my partner, and most recently a work friend who isn't from London. We both loved it. It makes me happy every time and shifts away from reality for the performance - very upset show is coming to an end soon, thank you for making so many people laugh, smile, and tear up (in a good way) everyday doing what you do.
