"Halt, you worthless street rat!"
"That's MR Worthless Street Rat to you!"
"One jump ahead of the breadline, one swing ahead of the sword, I steal only what I can't afford, and that's everything..."
It's already been a smash-hit on Broadway, and now Dean John–Wilson stars as the rakish street urchin–turned–handsome–prince in Disney's lavish new musical production of Aladdin, now at the Prince Edward Theatre.
Directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon), Aladdin the Musical gives you the songs from the classic Disney film plus new material by Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast) with lyrics by Howard Ashman (Beauty and the Beast) and Sir Tim Rice (The Lion King).
