Exclusive: Alan Menken talks Aladdin on Broadway

As part of their ongoing video series detailing the production of Aladdin, the new Broadway musical, Disney Theatrical Group has given us an exclusive first look at a new video featuring composer and Disney Legend Alan Menken. Alan was responsible for scoring the original Aladdin animated film, for which he won two Academy Awards along with collaborator Howard Ashman. This time around, Alan is collaborating with book-writer Chad Bequelin, who we recently interviewed about the process of bringing Aladdin to the stage.

Watch this video for some extra insight from Alan about the creation of the original Aladdin music, the new Broadway show, and what it has been like working with both Howard and Chad.
