Aladdin Sitzprobe Meshes the Voices and Orchestra of Disney's Newest Broadway Show
Adam Jacobs (Aladdin), Courtney Reed (Jasmine), James Monroe Iglehart (Genie) and the cast of Aladdin rehearsed with the show's orchestra for the first time at the sitzprobe of the newest Disney Broadway musical. In the room were Alan Menken (music), Casey Nicholaw (director-choreographer) and Michael Kosarin (musical director) as the cast and orchestra were finally able to realize the full sound of the score that will be performed on the stage of the New Amsterdam Theatre.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
