It was as if a genie granted our wish when cast members from Disney’s Aladdin – the hit Broadway musical, stopped into Seacrest Studios at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta recently! The musical scored great reviews from Atlanta critics but the visit to the studio scored even better reviews from patients! After previewing the movie Aladdin earlier in the week, patients and families were excited to meet Clinton Greenspan (Aladdin), Lissa deGuzman (Jasmine), Zach Bencal (Babkak) and Michelle West (Ensemble) and chat about everything from speedy costume changes to special effects!
Interestingly, all four hail from different cities, and many took different paths (singing vs. dancing vs. acting vs. sports) to get where they are today – terrific performers enjoying their dream job! It’s a good thing this talented foursome loves what they do because Aladdin, the musical will be on tour until 2020! There was no shortage of questions, just limited time as the cast had to head straight to rehearsal before the show that night. We are so grateful for the opportunity to meet the wonderful stars of Aladdin. Thank you for taking the time to visit and continued good luck with the tour!
