Original Aladdin cast member Michael James Scott rejoins the Broadway company, again assuming the role of Genie beginning February 28 at the New Amsterdam Theatre.

Scott, who served as a standby when the Disney musical first opened in 2014, went on to play the Genie full-time in Australia, in London's West End, and in the North American tour. His additional credits include Something Rotten! and The Book of Mormon (both, like Aladdin, directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw).
