Theater Gone Wrong: James Monroe Iglehart Leans Into His Genie Improv at Aladdin

The crowd got a great show during Iglehart's most forgetful day on Broadway.

James Monroe Iglehart, currently starring as Lafayette and Jefferson in Broadway's Hamilton, is probably best known for his Tony-winning performance as the Genie in Disney's Aladdin. We can all agree that focus is not one of the Genie's defining qualities, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise during one particularly harrowing show. Iglehart may have been sweating bullets, but for the audience, it was the most Genie-us performance they had ever seen.
