Cast, Broadway dates for ‘Aladdin’ musical

From Seattle Times theater critic Misha Berson:

The producers of “Aladdin,” the new musical from Disney, have announced the cast for the show’s Broadway premiere.  And there are some familiar names on the list for those who frequent Seattle theater, and who caught the show’s  2011  try-out here at the 5th Avenue Theatre.

With Casey Nicholaw repeating as director and choreographer, the show (which received middling reviews in Seattle)  will feature longtime Seattle musical theater favorites Brandon O’Neill reprising his role as Kassim and Don Darryl Rivera as Iago.

Adam Jacobs and Courtney Reed, who co-starred as romantic leads Aladdin and Jasmine at the 5th Avenue, will also encore their parts, and James Monroe Igelhart will again play the genie.

“Aladdin” opens a Toronto engagement in November, and begins performances at  Disney’s New Amsterdam Theatre on Broadway in late February 2014.
