Ah, salaam, and good evening to you worthy friend. Welcome to Agrabah, city of mystery, of enchantment……
Last week I was taken back to a time in my childhood where I knew every single song to every Disney movie that existed (well, to be honest, I still do), and my favourite of them all….? Aladdin!!
Last week Aladdin was brought to life in an absolute extravaganza at Crown Theatre. It was one of the largest, brightest, show-stopping performances I had ever seen. I clearly wasn’t the only one on this page as the audience gave not one, but two standing ovations throughout the musical.
‘Friend like me’, performed by Gareth Jacobs, the super fun and sassy Genie, would have to have been the performance of the night. The stage, the lights, the sparkles went off which resulted in the first standing ovation of the night and in the first half of the show I might add! You couldn’t help but sing and clap along to the performance, it was brilliant.
What also blew me away was not only the incredible performances by our very own Perth talent but the glittering sets and special effects that captured your attention every step of the way. If the outfits weren’t already extravagant enough, add into the mix a magic flying carpet, The Cave of Wonders and a magic spell book and you have a musical night to remember forever.
I loved Aladdin!! And with so much on offer at Crown at the moment, it makes for the perfect date night. Cocktail at The Waiting room, dinner at Nobu, show at Crown Theatre, what an incredible night that would be.
