Have you been yearning to see a full-blown stage production of Disney’s Aladdin on the Great White Way? If so, your wish may soon be granted: A source close to the production has confirmed to EW that a live-action version of the studio’s 1992 animated hit is taking a magic carpet ride straight to Broadway. The New York Times first reported the news.
Aladdin will take residence in the Disney-owned New Amsterdam Theater after Mary Poppins closes this March. It probably won’t begin performances until the spring of 2014.
