Aladdin on Broadway

It's here, it's here, it's finally here! It's possible you weren't as excited about Aladdin debuting on Broadway at the TicketNetwork.com team, but we're pretty thrilled the show will make its debut tonight. It seems like just yesterday we were announcing the new show and musing over the leaked details.

Tonight, Aladdin — the next Disney musical to grace the Great White Way — begins its previews at New Amsterdam Theatre. Adam Jacobs will star in the lead role of Aladdin, while Jonathan Freeman plays Jafar; James Monroe is Genie; and Courtney Reed will play Jasmine. Buzzfeed provided a sneak peek of what these characters will look like on stage, and it looks just as great as we imagined.

But we'll stop gushing now. Instead, we'll leave it at this: break a leg, Aladdin!

Theater news

After the announcement that Broadway is willing to take a chance on a show like "Rocky the Musical," it's not too surprising to learn that "Back to the Future" is the latest famous film to get an on-stage adaptation.

The musical will celebrate the 30th anniversary of "Back to the Future" starring Michael J. Fox. It is slated to open in London's West End come 2015, with a possibility for it to also make an appearance on Broadway.

Robert Zemeckis will write the plays book, along with Bob Gale and Jamie Lloyd, while music and lyrics will be composed by Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard. Lloyd, who will also direct the show, said, "The production will include illusions, skateboarding and many other surprises that will capture the spirit of the film but freshly interpret it for a new audience."

He's one of the main concert events during this Sunday's Broncos-Seahawks game, but Bruno Mars wasted no time in letting fans know when they can get tickets for this year's leg of the Moonshine Jungle Tour.

So, in a sense, Sunday's performance will be a preview of what's to come during the tour, which begins April 18.

Meanwhile, 15 of the 30 additional tour dates announced last week for R&B singer John Legend's "All of Me" tour go on sale this Friday and Saturday. The tour begins on March 20 in Temecula, CA.

And, in sports, the NCAA Mens' Basketball Tournament has initial tickets up for grabs, with onsales this Saturday for the First Four in Dayton, OH; the St. Louis, MO, set of rounds two and three, and the Midwest Regionals in Indianapolis, IN.
