Time to take a magic carpet ride as Disney’s Aladdin, part of the FAIRWINDS Broadway in Orlando series, will transform the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts into a whole new world from January 22 through February 9, 2020.
Even better, Orlando native Michael James Scott will come home to play the iconic role in Orlando for the three-week engagement. Scott has previously played Genie on Broadway, in London’s West End, on the North American tour, and in Australia, where he originated the part and won a Helpmann Award (the Australian version of The Tony Award).
Korie Lee Blossey, the tour’s current Genie, will return to the role following the Orlando engagement.
Aladdin, the hit musical based on the Academy Award®-winning animated film, opened on Broadway at the New Amsterdam Theatre to critical acclaim on March 20, 2014 and quickly established itself as one of the biggest new blockbusters in recent years, breaking 14 New Amsterdam Theatre house records.
Worldwide it has welcomed more than 10 million people and grossed over $1 billion.
Aladdin, adapted from the Academy Award®-winning animated Disney film and centuries-old folktales including “One Thousand and One Nights,” is brought to fresh theatrical life in this bold musical.
This production features a full score, including the five cherished songs from the Academy Award-winning soundtrack, and more written especially for the stage.

Tickets start at $31, and are available at DrPhillipsCenter.org, the venue box office, or via Ticketmaster.
