If you feel like your trust and faith in Aladdin has been betrayed by the trailer for the upcoming Will Smith, well, you’re right to be dismayed. However, a beacon of hope for you, Aladdin loyalist, will arrive at the Segerstrom Center. The touring musical that is faithful to the original 1992 version that dazzled audiences in theaters will be arriving on stage. The play which was once the toast of Broadway is currently on tour and features a number of the hits that made the characters and the songs favorites for kids of a certain time (you remember “A Whole New World” right?). Regardless of what you think of the rebooted version of the film, Aladdin will be a pleasant reminder of a simpler time when the animation was (somewhat) basic, and the songs catchy and enjoyable.
