Storyline

In a once-great kingdom, the Royal Vizier must set off on an adventure to save his city from its bumbling Sultan, an invading prince, and the most notorious thief who's ever lived. This twisted quest for magic lamp containing a wish-granting Djinn (who's really funny, by the way) celebrates and lovingly pokes fun at everyone's favorite series of hand-drawn animated musicals.

Trivia

Most of the characters don't go by their Disney names, presumably to avoid litigation from the famously brand-protective corporation: Jasmine is only known as "The Princess," Abu is only known as "Monkey," and Iago isn't even named. The titular vizier, who went by "Jafar" in the original Aladdin (1992), is here called "Ja'far." The one exception is Aladdin, whose name existed centuries before Disney adapted the story.

Quotes

Sherrezade: Once upon a time, in a far away land, there was a magic kingdom that prospered through its commitment to two simple ideals: Duty and Devotion. The 2D's.

A Masterpiece of Comedy
12 March 2019 | by Morgan24601See all my reviews

Starkid proves once again why they are one of the best theater companies of the 2010's. With a cast of amazing talent, writing that will leave you laughing non-stop, music that is beyond catchy, and so much more. If you want to kill two hours of time, do it with Twisted.
