@Matthew_daniel_: My favorite was either Hedwig, Violet, or Aladdin. @NY_dee: Aladdin. I had brushed it off as just another kids show. Then James Monroe Iglehart & his energy just blew me away. @kesspeak: most definitely @aladdin. so skillfully done, and such amazing performers. @JenniferSo129: ~ They were all so amazing! I loved Aladdin! I saw a test show in 2007 in DL, & I'm so excited it's on stage! ✨����
Watch Tony Award winner James Monroe Iglehart and the cast of Aladdin:
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.
