Aladdin, based on the 1992 animated film, is currently running at The New Amsterdam Theatre.The premier place to see Disney Broadway productions, the New Amsterdam Theatre was first opened in 1903, making it one of the oldest Broadway theatres. The building is rather narrow and offers seating for about 1,700 audience members. During the Great Depression, the theater was forced to close. A few years later it reopened as a movie house and remained so until the late 1980's when, in a court battle, the State and City of New York took over ownership of the building. In 1995, Disney signed a 49-year contract to lease the building and put on theatrical productions.
The building finally reopened in 1997 with the premiere of the animated movie Hercules. Shortly thereafter, The Lion King moved from Minneapolis, Minnesota, to the New Amsterdam Theatre where it was met with great success. It is currently the third-longest running show ever and the highest grossing production of all time, having made over $1 billion.The New Amsterdam Theatre is located at 214 West 42nd Street, near Times Square, in Manhattan.
