The Broadway company of the Disney musical Aladdin welcomes the return of Major Attaway in the role of the Genie beginning September 23 at the New Amsterdam Theatre.
Attaway follows Michael James Scott, who played his final performance September 22. Attaway previously played the Genie on Broadway from February 2016 through February 2019.
