We feel Disney’s Aladdin has a universal appeal and the musical will bring the magical story alive, making it truly memorable for our audiences here,” said Vikrant Pawar, Head Live Entertainment & Local Content Studio, Disney India.
Originally produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, the show features music by Tony Award and eight-time Oscar® winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Newsies, Sister Act, Little Shop of Horrors), lyrics by two-time Oscar winner Howard Ashman (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid), three-time Tony Award and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice (Evita, Aida).

Disney’s Aladdin promises to continue the legacy of the same magic on stage and be yet another spectacular musical to be experienced.
