WOW!!! What a fantastic musical. From start to finish it is non stop. Costumes were just amazing, and so many of them. Genie was wonderful, did Robin Williams proud. We sat in one of the boxes, and the view was great.

I saw this last Christmas but was bitterly disappointed. I was expecting some brilliant songs and many laughs, but ended up yawning and nearly falling asleep in my seat. The actors seemed as though they would rather be at home, and I can assure you...More
