Aladdin, one of the biggest hits in Broadway history, celebrated its tenth anniversary at the New Amsterdam Theatre last month. The hit production has played over 3,500 performances and welcomed nearly 6 million guests to the New Amsterdam Theatre.

Ranking number 15 on the list of all-time long-term Broadway shows, the man currently behind the Genie’s glitter is actor Michael James Scott. He chatted with the DivaGals about the mega-anniversary show and why Aladdin has brought so much joy to millions over the past decade.

In the tenth anniversary production, director-choreographer Casey Nicholaw staged a slate of hidden Easter eggs, including cameo appearances by Aladdin’s original stars: Adam Jacobs (Aladdin)—who is now appearing in a revival of TommyCourtney Reed (Jasmine) and Jonathan Freeman, who brought Jafar to life in the animated film before originating the role on Broadway. And of course, no reunion would be complete without James Monroe Iglehart, who won a 2014 Tony Award® for originating the role of Genie.
