Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) June 16, 2014

It's like a dream come true. For those wishing to see a stage version of Disneys 1992 animated film classic "Aladdin", the wait is finally over. Some 22 years after the blockbuster first hit theaters, the musical has now magically materialized on Broadway.

After a preview run began last February at the New Amsterdam Theatre, tickets were released today to over 234 full dress performances through January 4 of next year. Adapted for the stage by writer Chad Beguelin and eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, the play features hit songs from the film, plus several more written for Broadway.

Directed by Tony-winner Casey Nicholaw, the production also features Adam Jacobs and Courtney Reed as Aladdin and Jasmine, Jonathan Freeman as Jafar (reprising his part from the movie), and recent Tony Award winner James Monroe Iglehart taking on the role of the Genie: an ardent assignment given actor Robin Williams' memorable movie moxie.

Like the film, the play is garnering rave reviews in its own right. Not only was it nominated for a remarkable five Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Original Score, said Marta Ault at online discount ticket marketplace, James Monroe Iglehart, who stars as the genie, also won the 2014 Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actor.

"Thats why were proud to be able to offer theatre-goers the most comprehensive and continuously updated selection of discount theatre tickets online, with a Worry-Free Guarantee to protect their purchase, added Ault.

The story, created from centuries-old folk-tales including "One Thousand and One Nights, was a massive box office success and sold a record-breaking 25 million VHS recordings. In the musical, Aladdin, played by Adam Jacobs, is a charismatic street rascal in Agrabah, who stumbles upon an ancient lamp that proves to be much more than meets the eye.

Unwittingly, he frees the lamp's rib-tickling Genie, played by James Monroe Iglehart, who grants him three wishes. Transformed from vagrant to prince, Aladdin catches the eye of the beautiful Princess Jasmine, played by Courtney Reed, who is longing for an adventure. Unfortunately, the wicked royal vizier Jafar and his minions are plotting to use the lamp for evil and it is up to Aladdin to keep Agrabah out of his grasp.

The original soundtrack for the film won an Academy Award and Golden Globe for Best Original Score for composer Alan Menken and lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice. Menken also wrote songs for "The Little Mermaid, "Beauty and the Beast" and "Newsies.

The films music also tallied a BAFTA Award nomination, while the song "A Whole New World" earned an Academy Award for Best Original Song, a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song and the Grammy Award for Song of the Year with lyricist Tim Rice. In addition, the movie album is one of the best-selling animated film soundtracks of all time, with nearly two and a half million copies sold in the U.S. alone as of April 2014.
