Aladdin Gives Minneapolis Fall Colors some Competition
What arguably became popular because of Robin Williams’ role as Genie, Aladdin the movie has been adapted to the stage and is a Broadway success. This is one of those stories that really shine on stage because the setting naturally has a lot of color and vibrancy. The culture lends to a lot of energy, and so the actors can zealfully bring their characters to life.
The magic comes to Minneapolis for a 3 week run. The Hennepin Theatre Trust website says this about it:
“From the producer of The Lion King comes the timeless story of Aladdin, a thrilling new production filled with unforgettable beauty, magic, comedy and breathtaking spectacle. It’s an extraordinary theatrical event where one lamp and three wishes make the possibilities infinite.”
The Orpheum will host the adventure form September 15th – October 8th. That’s almost 30 chances to see this beautifully impressive version of your old Disney favorite.
