Thanks for the link! Very Happy

Mermaid is going to Holland first... interesting! Guess I'd better not hold my breath for a UK debut for Aladdin! What will be really cruel is if they do Aladdin in say France and do a full cast recording but we still don't get a Seattle cast recording. Sadly it could happen.

The Newsies is temporary, right? So that definitely could happen.


I believe so, I think one of the articles I read quoted someone at Disney Theatrical as saying something along the lines of "strike whilst the iron is hot" as Newsies is very topical in the current climate so they can capitalise on that.

Plus as that article says, the Broadway stint will help boost the demand for the licensed version. Aladdin may not need the same boost (it was created due to high demand for the license) but it certainly couldn't hurt! But Disney probably think they can wait for Aladdin as there will always be demand, but Newsies is topical now so that's why they're pushing it.

I got a nice holiday surprise;

http://aladdinmusical.blogspot.com/2012/01/street-rats-on-three.html

An interview with Brandon (Kassim) O'Neill!! Enjoy!

Brandon seems like a great (and very hard working!) guy and gives some really nice insights into Kassim and his character.

Only 2 cast members left. I'm gonna do what I can to chase up those and the 3 production team interviews.

Edit - Missed a fairly important tweet from Alan Menken last November!! He had 3 days of meetings with Casey and Chad about the show. I'm guessing this was part of the next round of development mentioned in the article that said the show was going to Europe.

Adam and Courtney looking gorgeous at the premiere of their new show Once on this Island at the Paper Mill Playhouse.



The show runs until around the end of June (24th I think)

JMI has posted a gallery of new Genie production photos on his website

http://jamesmonroeiglehart.webs.com/apps/photos/album?albumid=12380325

I'm guessing most of these photos that the 5th didn't use for publicity which is why we've not seen them anywhere before (it's also possible this means JMI paid the photographer for the rights to have them on his site if they weren't in the batch selected by 5th Ave for publicity purposes). I think I've found the photographer on Facebook so I'm going to try and contact him and see if he can provide with some "new" images for a 1st anniversary piece I'm working on.

Has it really been a year? It doesn't even feel like it! Looking at those photos are making me all mushy inside, though, so some enough time for nostalgia to kick in must have passed Laughing. Can't wait for the one year piece you're working on!

And I somehow missed that picture of Courtney and Adam. This board sometimes doesn't like to tell me about updates Mad . They're so cute, though, aww.

Well last night was the 1st anniversary of the show's official opening! What better way to celebrate than with some reflections by the cast!

http://aladdinmusical.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/reflections-on-aladdin-1st-anniversary.html

I wasn't able to get hold of everybody so I have taken quotes from old interviews, but there's still plenty of new stuff in there and I know at least 1 more is on the way in the near future (Courtney was on holiday).

Hope you all enjoy!

Oh, by the way, does anyone else have trouble with the JMI Show where he interview Andrew, Brian and Brandon? I wanted a quote for Brian but it keeps freezing around the eight and a half minute mark when Brian is talking so I've not been able to get anything!

Uh oh, I feel some ugly crying coming on Laughing. I can't believe its been a year. Thanks for post, Chris. I feel like I was there...even though, you know, I wasn't there Laughing

I have the same problem. It originally stopped loading at that point, continued to load, and then stopped when the video marker finally made it to that point. I think I saved that video last year (because I'm one of those types of fans who has to document everything), so I can upload it and send it to you if you need it (or give you the quote you're after, even).

Yeah, that's exactly how doing the blog has made me feel. I said to Jane when we were in Utah, one of the strangest things was realising how much I didn't know about the show!

Bit late (been a mad few weeks) but if the offer to upload/transcribe the interview still stands I'd really appreciate it! Laughing

So you didn't feel like you've already seen it despite knowing how everything came together? That's good to hear.

I'll PM you a link!

It felt fresh every time I saw it. It's just so fast paced, you never get bored and it never feels like it lags at any point. They've done so well blending the film, the original songs and new story elements to tie it all together.

Thanks for the PM, I'll update that in the week! Really appreciate it Smile
