Aladdin on Broadway to Celebrate its 10th Anniversary Next Month

Aladdin on Broadway marks its remarkable 10th anniversary at the New Amsterdam Theatre on March 20, 2024. As it dazzles audiences with its 3,513th performance on this momentous occasion, Aladdin will have graciously hosted nearly 6 million attendees at the New Amsterdam Theatre, securing its spot as #15 among Broadway’s enduring productions. Throughout its illustrious run, Aladdin has consistently graced the Top 10 list of highest-grossing Broadway shows, a testament to its enduring appeal.

In the span of this decade, only the titans of Broadway—The Lion King, Wicked, and Hamilton—have surpassed Aladdin’s box office success. To commemorate this milestone, a special celebratory performance is slated for the following week, on Thursday, March 28, where director-choreographer Casey Nicholaw promises a treasure trove of hidden Easter eggs and an awe-inspiring surprise within the show’s iconic production number, “Friend Like Me.”

On a global scale, Aladdin’s resonance and popularity stand as a rare feat among Broadway musicals. With 11 productions spanning across four continents, audiences worldwide have been enchanted by the spectacle crafted by Nicholaw and his exceptional creative team, recipients of an impressive 24 career Tony® Awards.
