The original star will reprise her performance as Jasmine for a limited engagement.
Broadway's original Princess Jasmine, Courney Reed, will return to Aladdin for a limited engagement October 16–27. The star originated the role when the stage adaptation opened in 2014 at the New Amsterdam Theatre and went on to join the national tour and West End casts.
Reed will join Clinton Greenspan and Major Attaway as Aladdin and the Genie, respectively, when she returns. The current Broadway cast also includes Jonathan Freeman as Jafar, Brian Gonzales, Mike Longo, and Brad Weinstock as Aladdin’s sidekicks Babkak, Kassim, and Omar, respectively, JC Montgomery as Sultan, and Don Darryl Rivera as Iago.
Based on the Oscar-winning animated film—which was recently adapted into a live-action feature—Aladdin is now in its sixth year on Broadway.
