Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...Fortunately, the story does get going again. During their meet-cute in the marketplace, the disguised Jasmine and Aladdin run afoul of the law. Aladdin is arrested and dragged to the palace dungeon, where, through sorcery, Jafar learns that this unprepossessing con man is actually "the diamond in the rough," the one person worthy of entering the Cave of Wonders that holds the magic lamp."

LA Weekly - Somewhat Recommended

"...Bob Crowley’s diverse and extravagant sets — especially the grand, intricate labyrinthine cave and his expansive nighttime sky — truly are a feast for the eye, while Gregg Barnes’ costumes are exotic and colorful and the hues in Natasha Katz’s lighting design are rich and lovely. The problem is that all these elements in tandem frequently overtake the performances of the actors, who are tasked with propelling a weak, none-too-clever narrative."

Stage and Cinema - Highly Recommended

"...Despite Beguelin’s book, marred by a jokey-to-glib penchant for hip pop-culture references, and Nicholaw’s locomotive direction (with choreography that blends old-school vaudeville with reliably “exotic” high-step hoofing), there’s enchantment galore. And the cast is having a blast."

Musicals In LA - Highly Recommended

"...As Disney stage musicals go, the North American tour of Aladdin that just opened at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre is the big, splashy colorful delight kids and musical theatre lovers want to see. Dressed in a dizzying array of dazzle and glitz, it offers a top-of-the-line audience experience for fans of the beloved and well-known tale anxious to be whisked away to a dreamy world where the underdog gets the girl, the villain loses, and the comic relief holds court every time he steps on stage."

Showmag - Highly Recommended

"...Channeling Robin Williams' manic take on the genie in Walt Disney's animated feature Aladdin, Michael James Scott takes center stage as the Broadway Arabian nights tale of the "street rat" from the fictional city of Agrabah gets three wishes from from a genie in a magic lamp and has a happy romance with a princess. It is tailor-made for Disney, as their princesses are big business for the company, and the audience on opening night was liberally sprinkled with little girls cheering on the hero and heroine. Some were carrying purchased Jasmine dolls. Its message is positive, and it is delivered with humor and a generous portion of energy."

Stage Raw - Somewhat Recommended

"...There’s plenty in this Aladdin to wow the kids, but surprisingly, it’s not a significant improvement on the long-running abridged version of the movie that played four times a day at Disney’s California Adventure theme park until 2016."

Haines His Way - Recommended

"...Casey Nicholaw’s direction gives the show a forward momentum that the childish dialogue and antics often attempt to derail. His choreography is fairly rote although well executed by the large chorus. He throws everything but the kitchen sink into the big Act One production number, “Friend Like Me.” What he didn’t use then, like the streamer shooting cannons, he saved for Act Two’s “Prince Ali.” If you can go into the show with the enthusiasm and critical awareness of a hyper screaming nine year old, Disney Aladdin will suit you fine."

On Stage and Screen - Highly Recommended

"...There is an inescapable nostalgia factor attached to Disney Theatrical Productions, and it was on full display at the Pantages in Los Angeles last night as the national tour of Aladdin opened to a very receptive crowd. For the most part, this stage adaptation of the 1992 film, which debuted on Broadway in 2014 and still runs there today, delivers exactly what you expect from it. The brightly colored, exuberant spectacle is designed to be perfectly family friendly while dropping in enough punny jokes to keep the adults in the audience amused. Any shortcomings are easily forgotten by the time you arrive home, surely still singing “A Whole New World” and “Friend Like Me” to yourself."

Ticket Holders LA - Highly Recommended

"...Now, I understand Aladdin's Tony-nominated book by Beguelin follows the original animated classic basically scene by scene and word for word, but for someone new to the experience, I couldn't help wonder if the adult-ifying of the script was new to the Broadway version, as the familiar and predictable storyline itself made me want to run for the exit before the show even began. No matter, though, because everything thrown upon the also visually-stunning Pantages stage by Disney's imagineers is most welcome, quickly transcending the expectations of even the crustiest of ancient and world-weary critics."
