Disney's Aladdin, starring Adam Jacobs as charming street rat Aladdin and Courtney Reed as misunderstood princess Jasmine, will fly into Broadway's New Amsterdam Theatre Feb. 26. In anticipation of its first performance, meet the stars of the show in Disney's Artist Spotlight video series.

Aladdin officially opened its pre-Broadway engagement Nov. 21, 2013, following previews that began Nov. 1, at Toronto's Mirvish Theatre. Opening night on Broadway is set for March 20. 

Jacobs (Les Misérables, The Lion King) and Reed (In the Heights, Mamma Mia!) co-starred in the show's Seattle premiere. James Monroe Iglehart, of Broadway's Memphis, also reprises his performance as the Genie, and Jonathan Freeman, who voiced the nefarious villain Jafar in the 1992 animated Disney film and reprised his performance on stage, again plays that role.

Brian Gonzales, Brandon O'Neill, Jonathan Schwartz play Aladdin's sidekicks Babkak, Kassim and Omar, respectively, and Tony nominee Clifton Davis plays the Sultan with Don Darryl Rivera as Iago. Merwin Foard and Michael James Scott standby for several principals.

Rounding out the cast are Tia Altinay, Mike Cannon, Andrew Cao, Lauryn Ciardullo, Joshua Dela Cruz, Yurel Echezarreta, Daisy Hobbs, Donald Jones, Jr., Adam Kaokept, Nikki Long, Stanley Martin, Brandt Martinez, Michael Mindlin, Rhea Patterson, Bobby Pestka, Khori Petinaud, Aleks Pevec, Ariel Reid, Jennifer Rias, Trent Saunders, Jaz Sealey, Dennis Stowe, Marisha Wallace and Bud Weber.
