@ Prince Edward Theatre on Thu, 26th Oct 2017 - Sun, 20th Oct 2019

Featuring much-loved characters such as Genie, Aladdin and Jasmine, the musical is just as heart-warming as the film. There's a lot of big names behind this West End smash, including lyrics from Howard Ashman of Beauty and the Beast fame, and Tim Rice.
