Cadillac Palace Theatre, 151 W. Randolph
Disney’s ALADDIN opened its North American tour to critical acclaim on April 19 in Chicago at the Cadillac Palace Theatre.  The Chicago Tribune hails ALADDIN as, “eye-popping and extravagant.” The Chicago Sun-Times raves, “This quintessential musical comedy flies into Chicago on an opulent magic carpet.” The Daily Herald declares, “Aladdin soars into Chicago and has audiences cheering!!” and Time Out Chicago heralds ALADDIN as, “Old-fashioned Capital-E entertainment. A dazzling, entertaining spectacle that’s comic gold.”

Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, the show features music by Tony Award and eight-time Oscar® winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Newsies, Sister Act), lyrics by two-time Oscar winner Howard Ashman (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid), three-time Tony Award and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice (Evita, Aida) and four-time Tony Award nominee Chad Beguelin (The Wedding Singer), with a book by Beguelin, and is directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon, Something Rotten!).

One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, THE KING AND I boasts a score that features such beloved classics as “Getting To Know You,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance,” “I Have Dreamed” and “Something Wonderful.” Set in 1860’s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna Leonowens, a British schoolteacher, whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.

Directed by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher, the Lincoln Center Theater production won four 2015 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical. Hailed as “first-rate, sumptuous” (The New York Times) and "too beautiful to miss" (New York Magazine), this iconic musical is led by Olivier Award-winning actress Laura Michelle Kelly, known for her performance as the title role in the London production of Disney’s Mary Poppins as well as Sylvia Llewelyn Davies in the Broadway production of Finding Neverland. Kelly stars opposite Jose Llana who returns to the role of “The King of Siam” after two starring engagements in the acclaimed Lincoln Center revival.

Sher reunites with an award-winning creative team from Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific and The Light in the Piazza. THE KING AND I has music direction by Ted Sperling, sets by Michael Yeargan, costumes by Catherine Zuber (Tony Award winner for THE KING AND I), lighting by Donald Holder, sound by Scott Lehrer and casting by Telsey + Company/Abbie Brady-Dalton, CSA.
