File this one under "It's about damned time!" LOLz!!
Aladdin is one of our FAVORITE animated features!!
We cried ourselves to sleep night after Arabian night while its Disney siblings were invited to become Broadway babies and Prince Ali was left in the dust!!
We cry no more, friends!
Alan Menken — the Oscar-winning musical producer responsible for a slew of successful Disney-to-stage adaptations — says they're prepping our street rat and his loving Princess (and their monkey!) for a Broadway run!!
What a glorious sigh of relief! It's like a magic genie granted us three wishes!!
The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast might be one jump ahead of Aladdin in terms of stage seniority but we are positive this musical will be epic!
Creators will even incorporate 3D glasses for the Cave of Wonders scene!!
Yes, yes, YES!!!
This whole production is destined to be shining, shimmering, and splendid!
