Aladdin Buddies

Two friends of mine are currently part of the the enormously popular universe of Aladdin "On Stage".
Jonathan Freeman is the first and only actor who voiced a Disney animated villain and then went on to portray the role on stage.
I loooved animating to Jonathan's voice, and he is dynamite in the Broadway show. If you anywhere near New York, treat yourself to a fantastic evening.

A different, non Disney production of Aladdin is happening right now in Paris. My friend Alexis Loizon plays the title character. Here is a group shot with the main cast, Alexis is the one with the six pac case you wondered.
Our Disney connection is actually Beauty and the Beast. Alexis played a forceful French Gaston in the Disney stage production of La Belle et La Bete.
I am thrilled that he will also appear in Disney's upcoming live action movie Beauty and the Beast, not as Gaston though. Stay tuned!
