Aladdin Stars and Creators on How Disney Made Their Broadway Dreams Come True

Meet the folks who are bringing the classic film to the New York stage. logo

Adam Jacobs, Courtney Reed, James Monroe Iglehart, and Jonathan Freeman have two major things in common: They all loved the Disney movie Aladdin and they all wanted to be on Broadway. So starring on Broadway in Aladdin? Naturally, it's a dream come true (even for the Tony-nominated Freeman, who played Jafar in the film). We caught up with them at the production's press meet-and-greet where they proudly shared thoughts on how this one-of-a-kind experience is already changing their lives.
