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.

“A Christmas Story,” the refurbished holiday musical comedy that was a box office hit at 5th Avenue Theatre last season, will embark on a five-city national tour with several members of the 5th Avenue’s cast. Among them is Clark Hallum, the talented Olympia middle-schooler who plays the lead role of Ralphie, a kid weathering Christmas with his quirky family. The show will play in Hershey, PA, next month, then travel to Detroit, Raleigh, Tampa, and Chicago. Read Misha Berson’s review of the show in Seattle here.
