The show's charm is twofold: it's a song-and-dance spectacular in the old tradition that happens to have one of the more diverse casts in Broadway history. With, perhaps, one demographic exception. Months before the March premiere, a rumor circulated online that the member cast includes no performers of Middle Eastern heritage. First posted anonymously on a theater blog by a self-identified Middle Eastern actor, the claim has since gone viral, gaining notice in recent weeks from sites like Racialicous and Jezebel. In an email to The Huffington Post, a Disney representative explained why the ethnic breakdown of the cast can neither be confirmed nor denied.
What's more, the credo that drives colorblind casting -- that the best person for the job should win -- is open to interpretation.
Casting policies notwithstanding, ethnicity ultimately mattered when Disney petitioned the Actors' Equity union to keep certain South African members of the cast in the country because of the "unique quality" of their accents, as reported by Playbill.
Its sun-baked setting of Agrabah, after all, took shape in Hollywood, and the original tale itself is also thought to be a Western invention. Compiled by Antoine Galland, a French scholar and traveler, the 17th-century edition remains the pre-eminent collection of what were previously scattered stories, many of them orally told.
One theory is that Galland heard the tale of Aladdin from a Christian monk who fabricated it. Another theory holds that Galland made up the story himself.
Aladdin's standalone name is not typical to Islamic folklore, which tends to revolve around stock protagonists all titled some variation of "Clever Hassan," "Clever Ali" or "Clever Mohammed.
Hasan El-Shamy, an Egyptian-American folklorist at Indiana University who has written extensively on Galland's translation, said the French writer's tale popularized harmful notions of Islamic culture that have thrived in the West for centuries -- "that [Muslims] are an unrealistic people, that they are violent, that they are superstitious," he said.
Go ahead, say something smart, Yogi! Were you talking to me?
Read something from your book there. Something astute.
Well, here is a love poem. I love you more than a smelly elephant. No matter how many princes you bring to me, I will love only one! The prince I met at the market today! What kind of a prince goes skulking around in the market? Wait until you see the next one, my dear.
You'll fall in love in an instant. OMAR enters.
He makes great sweeps of his cape as he bows. You told me of your daughter's charms, sir, but I see you were modest. Why, not even the stars in the sky can compare to these sparkling eyes.
Omar is well connected. Note: This is a sample from the actual script. It was originally written for the Disney film, but it was cut. The songs are somewhat different in Aladdin Jr. There are additional changes in the musical. For instance, three princes come to try for Jasmine's hand in marriage. The additional narrators reprise "Arabian Nights" several times throughout the musical in order to more quickly further the plot as well as have " red carpet interviews" with several characters at the beginning of the show.
MTI's "Kids" musicals are written for even younger performers and are shortened further to run approximately 30 minutes. Inside the marketplace, a Shop Owner berates the hungry Aladdin for stealing a loaf of bread, causing Razoul and his Guards to chase after him and his pals "One Jump Ahead" until they escape.
In the palace, Jafar plots with Iago to become Sultan as Jasmine rejects Prince Abdullah and the Sultan declares that she must marry by the next moon.
Frustrated, Jasmine confides in her attendants - Isir, Manal, and Rajah - who encourage her to open up to experiences beyond the palace "These Palace Walls". As Jasmine disguises herself and takes off to heed their advice, Jafar and Iago invoke an incantation, and a Spooky Voice reveals that Aladdin is the key to finding a magic lamp that will grant Jafar the power to become Sultan.
In the marketplace, Aladdin and his friends put on a show in the hope of earning some money "Babkak, Omar, Aladdin, Kassim".
