Watch: Broadway’s ‘Aladdin’ Cast Pay Tribute to Robin Williams and His Genie
Broadway is also mourning the loss of Robin Williams.
On Tuesday night, the cast of Aladdin paused to sing a song in honor of the actor’s career and legacy.
Led by James Monroe Iglehart, who plays Genie (a role Williams voiced for the 1992 Disney film), the stage talent and the audience belted out a heartwarming performance of “Friend Like Me.”
On Wednesday, all of Broadway will pay tribute to Williams a minute-long lights out along the Great White Way at approximately 7:45 p.m. EST.
In 2011 Williams starred in the Broadway production of Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo. Some 10 years prior, he held a one-man show called “Robin Williams: Live on Broadway.”
