Washington Post - Somewhat Recommended

"...Of course Disney will fold “Aladdin” into as many shapes as it can profitably manage for as long as it can, and of course the Broadway version will burst trying to provide you with a spectacular time. That’s the numbing bottom line of recycled culture. It’s a showbiz world."

MetroWeekly - Highly Recommended

"...Not a whole new world, but rather an opulent remodel of the hit 1992 animated movie, Disney’s Aladdin works hard to bring magical fantasy to life onstage. And the ingenuity put forth in director-choreographer Casey Nicholaw’s touring production of his Tony-winning Broadway staging does appear to make magic carpets fly.x

"...Now in its second year, the national tour of the 2014 Broadway mega-hit musical Aladdin offers the kind of family friendly entertainment opportunity (and, let's face it, name recognition) that really sells itself. Some questionable casting choices and a book by Chad Beguelin that's filled with a little too many eyeroll worthy anachronistic jokes, aside, the touring production has a few elements that make a trip to the Kennedy Center worth it. A stellar - albeit deeply caffeinated - performance by Major Attaway as the Genie, moments of Disney magic (how about that magic carpet?), some really fun production numbers featuring a really talented ensemble cast, and of course some great songs by Alan Menken (Music), the incomparable Howard Ashman, Tim Rice, and Chad Beguelin (Lyrics) are some of the reasons you might give this show a look."

"...Greenspan and Kekoa are attractive, sing beautifully, and have good chemistry, especially as they sing "A Whole New World" while floating on a gravity-defying magic carpet in front of a colorful, fireworks-lit night sky (lighting design by Natasha Katz). The entire cast keeps up the energy for two and a half hours, especially the hard-working chorus, and a sizable orchestra provides powerful support."

"..."Aladdin" doesn't have the gravitas of so many other productions that come through the Kennedy Center (for example, "The Band's Visit," also currently showing there). However, the production is fun, it's gorgeous, and it makes for a family-friendly night of live theatre-and sometimes all that's needed. "

"...Well Ali Baba had them 40 thieves, Scheherezad-ie had a thousand tales! But DC, you in luck, 'cause on your stage- you got a Disney show that never fails! You got some Disney in your Opera House, it's the summer show, it's set up camp! The Kennedy Center's punching with pizzazz, and all you'll wanna do is rub that lamp and you'll get- Disney's Aladdin! Direct from Broadway on its National Tour, the iconic full-length animated feature classic has received the bippity-boppity-Broadway treatment and is now appearing live as a stage musical. Camping out in The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts' Opera House Stage through Labor Day weekend, this childhood classic tale is Disneyfied and will delight young audiences, those young at heart, and everyone in-between. It's a whole new world of magic, just waiting to be lived."

"...Whether this national tour of Aladdin is for you really depends on what you value in a big time stage adaptation of a popular property. If you are looking for new material that improves and enlivens the original with consistent and complex performances across the cast, you might want to hold off. But if you want the glitz of Broadway amalgamated with an unforgettable performance and a deep draught of nostalgia, then the Kennedy Center's Aladdin is the show for you."
