5 Years Ago...
It's hard to believe but 5 years ago this week (yesterday to be precise) Disney Theatrical announced the World Premiere of Aladdin at Seattle's historic 5th Avenue Theatre! Yes, the original production of Aladdin will celebrate it's 5th anniversary this summer!
Back in January 2011 5th Avenue said "We are thrilled to partner with Disney on this prestigious new project ... This new Aladdin incorporates all of the beloved songs from the film's Oscar-winning score plus never-before-heard Menken/Ashman songs restored from early drafts of the score ... The new stage production will be a feast for the eyes and ears and a magical treat fit for the whole family."
I just can't believe it's been 5 years. That means I've been doing this blog for 5 years! Not bad considering I didn't expect it to last past 2011! I can only imagine how life altering it must have been for some of the cast and creative team who've been with this show from the beginning! It's been an amazing journey and it isn't over yet!
