27 Mar 2014
Disney's Aladdin, starring Adam Jacobs as charming street rat Aladdin and Courtney Reed as misunderstood princess Jasmine, opened at Broadway's New Amsterdam Theatre March 20. Meet Jonathan Freeman, the show's Jafar, in Disney's Artist Spotlight video series.
James Monroe Iglehart, of Broadway's Memphis, reprises his show-stopping performance as the Genie, and Freeman, who voiced the nefarious villain Jafar in the 1992 film and reprised his performance on stage, again plays that role.
