A week ago I went to London for my birthday to see one of the most amazing performances I’ve ever seen. It was a singing, dancing sensation. Full and glamour, jewels and full of sparkle. The show was glamorous, energetic and such fun.
Disneys Aladdin was my childhood favourite film. I had all of the dolls, soft toys and kitchen wear. So this was the perfect birthday gift for me.
I wore a blue off the shoulder dress similar to the colour Jasmine wears. And wore my Aladdin themed necklace brought from https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/SandyKissesUK. It was a birthday present off my sister, I was over the moon with it.
We stayed close to Prince Edward Theatre. We were only a short walk away which was perfect. We arrived at the theatre thirty minutes early enabling us to buy a drink, find our seats and visit the merchandise stall. (My favourite!). I buy a programme from every show I see so that was a must. There were two programmes a big one with pictures and a small one with information. I brought both. I also collect magnets from places I visit so when I saw the golden lamp I had to have that one. And finally there was an offer which consisted of a canvas bag, fleece blanket, mug and jasmine tea, so I brought that also.
We sat in the front row in the Dress Circle in seats A20 and A21. We had plenty of leg room and the seats were very comfortable. As the show started I felt like a child I was so excited. I had the biggest smile on my face. The music and singing was amazing, the dancing was brilliant, the costumes were absolutely beautiful and the little twists were great and worked well.
My favourite scene was when Aladdin entered the cave of wonders. The stage background was spectacular. Flashing lights, smoke, fireworks and lots of gold! This is when we got to meet the Genie played by Trevor Dion Nicholas. He was brilliant! Such a great performer. He sung, danced and was very comical. He defiantly lived up to the role.
Another magical moment was Aladdin and Jasmine flying on the magic carpet through the night sky. “Wow” is all I could say. Truly beautiful moment.
Overall the performance was spectacular. It’s a must see show and I’d highly recommend it to everyone. I would love to go and see it again!.
