News   PHOTO CALL: The Cast of Aladdin Joins in Annual New Year’s Eve Confetti Test
 
The cast of Aladdin on Broadway joined event organizers and threw handfuls of confetti from the New Amsterdam Theatre marquee as part of the annual confetti test, on Monday, Dec. 29.

Adam Jacobs (Aladdin), James Monroe Iglehart (Genie), and Courtney Reed (Jasmine) joined Times Square Alliance President Tim Tompkins, and Countdown Entertainment President Jeffrey Straus in preparation for the release of more than one ton of confetti—by hand from Times Square rooftops by more than 100 volunteers—at midnight on New Year’s Eve.

Each year, visitors from countries across the world write their wishes for the New Year on pieces of confetti, which are collected at the New Year’s Eve Wishing Wall. These pieces are then mixed in with 3,000 pounds of confetti that will flutter down onto revelers gathered in Times Square when the Ball, designed by Waterford Crystal and lit by Philips Luxeon Rebel LEDs, drops at midnight.

Here's a look at the cast at the event:
