    Literally, the broadway Aladdin naturally looks like Aladdin without anything to make him change into him. He’s natural!
    As for broadway Genie, he is as close to the original Genie as anyone can get!

  11. Jesse Collins says:

    I wouldn’t even care if my kids were Democrats they were that talented.

    Wow, these three make such a great team. I admire Alan Menken for being able to just improvise on the spot and memorize all those songs. I mean, I know he wrote all of them, but still.

  27. Joseph Kienstra says:

    I like how the Genie is like "I'll be the small guy this time and you can be the big guy" for Gaston but the small guy is who sings the whole song hahah

  29. Fabian Birke says:

    You three emit such a friendship and joie de vivre that it's wonderful to look at. More people should have as much fun in life as you demonstrated in the video. Keep it up! You are great.

    It is like my dream to meet Alan Menken.
