ALADDIN – Cadillac Palace, 151 W Randolph St., Chicago, (312) 977-1700, broadwayinchicago.com
Q-tips say: You know the story….. so, Great show. Super special effects, acting, dancing, singing, etc. A lot of dancing & singing, more than I care for but great for families, kids of all ages, bur not sure if it is for real young kids – some of the special effects could be frightening for real young people. The audience was mostly younger adults in 30’s, 40’s. The older crowd had grown kids with families and grand children in tow. See it!
Critics say below: but what do they really know? Probably more than I.
