To celebrate the fifth anniversary of Aladdin on Broadway, five current and former Genies — Tony Award winner James Monroe Iglehart, current star Michael James Scott, tour Genie Major Attway, and current Broadway standbys Juwan Crawley and Deonté L. Warren — came together onstage after the March 31 performance to perform a medley of songs from the show. Check out the performance below.

Based on the 1992 Disney animated film, Aladdin opened on Broadway on March 20, 2014. With a score by Alan Menken, Howard Ashman, and Tim Rice with songs such as "Friend Like Me" and the Academy Award-winning "A Whole New World," the show features a new book and additional lyrics by Chad Beguelin.
