OH EM GEE. What a night!
I was at the Gala Premiere Night of Aladdin The Musical yesterday. I have nothing else to say but one word – AWESOMETASTIC!
OK, maybe that’s not enough to sum up the whole show so I’ll walk you through some of what I had experienced at the musical. The backdrop was beautiful in EVERY scene! Love all the details they put into the backdrop and the colors of the lighting so that it blends well with the clothes and dances. The stage looked very spacious in comparison to when I was there during behind the scenes tour.
When I registered at the Surf Beach entrance, I was placed under the “media” section and so we went to the Lighthouse Cafe for refreshments first (yummy food freshly cooked) before going to the amphitheatre on the buggy. I brought my mom as company with me last night. After dinner, met Shemah and her sister at the amphitheatre.
Mr. Aaron Soo was there for the opening speech before the musicals starts. He thanked all the sponsors and partners for making the musical come true.
Then it began. And I was blown away. What a performance! We saw Aladdin made a spectacular “flying” entrance on the zip line, we saw the gorgeous Princess Jasmine and her father the Sultan, there was the phenomenal headpiece of the evil Jafar (it was bigger than the girls’ headpieces), we loved the very cheeky and funtastic Genie with his wit and butt-gyrations and so much more. We even loved the 3D lights and flying live chickens on stage.
Aladdin the Musical had been an amazing performance. With a little tweak on the sound system (because sometimes we can’t hear what was said), everything would be 100% perfect.
I’m sure you guys have heard or read about Aladdin and his Genie but this musical is a bit more funnier than the original tale.
Songs involved in this musical are mostly current pop songs that young and old can sing along to such as Travie McCoy’s “Billionaire”, Bruno Mars’ “Marry You” and so many others. Of course they must also sing the classic “A Whole New World” by Peabo Bryson and Regina Bell but the attention-seeker Genie who sings every time he makes and entrance makes it livelier and dance-worthy.
The best part of this night? A number of those who came tonight get to take photos with the casts. So, of course I would not miss out on this chance! Jess Elmer (Slave Of The Ring) remembered me and suddenly just hugged and kissed me. She’s absolutely gorgeous! All the others are friendly as well. Peter Jamieson (Sultan) is so camera friendly and will hug you anytime and Michael Morgan (Jafar) is just so cool, always ready to give “evil” stares to the camera.
I was laughing all the time at this show and I know I am not going to regret going to this musical again next week.
