Aladdin London Theatre Review

Saw the matinee performance of Disney's Aladdin today at the Prince Edward Theatre in Soho, London. Following the plot of the animation closely (minus Abu and Rajar) it goes through all the great musical numbers plus a few extra fillers. "You Never Had a Friend Like Me" and "Prince Ali" are the show stoppers they deserve, with the Genie's song being the highlight of the show. "A Whole New World" is also magical with the flying carpet sequence done perfectly. The only minor points that let it down are Aladdin himself (slightly weak voice) and the ending not quiet as good as the animation. On the whole though a superb performance all round.
