The 5th Avenue Theatre is thrilled to announce casting for Aladdin featuring Adam Jacobs and Courtney Reed as Aladdin and Jasmine, James Monroe Iglehart as the Genie, and Seattle mainstay Seán G. Griffin as the Sultan. Jonathan Freeman takes the stage to embody the role he originally voiced for the film, the Royal Vizier Jafar. He is joined by comedic favorite Don Darryl Rivera as Iago. Aladdin restores a trio of characters originally conceived by the film’s creators: Omar, Babkak, and Kassim, played by Andrew Keenan-Bolger, Brian Gonzales, and Brandon O’Neill, respectively.
Direct from the sensational Broadway hit The Book of Mormon, for which he received a Tony® Award nomination for Best Director, acclaimed director and choreographer Casey Nicholaw returns to the place where it all began: the 5th Avenue Theatre. Nicholaw received his first professional choreography gig (The Prince and the Pauper, 2001) and later choreographed My Fair Lady (2002). On Broadway, Nicholaw won praise as the choreographer of Spamalot, and as the director / choreographer of The Drowsy Chaperone and Elf: The Broadway Musical_, garnering three Tony nominations for his work. Music for_Aladdin is by Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Tangled_), who has won a total of eight Oscars, more than any living person. Lyrics are by the late Howard Ashman (Little Shop of Horrors, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid_) and Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, Chess, The Lion King). Librettist Chad Beguelin wrote the books for The Rhythm Club, Wicked City and The Wedding Singer, which premiered at the 5th Avenue in 2006. Menken and Beguelin contribute additional lyrics.
