Aladdin goes West End

Next year the successful Aladdin Musical that’s been playing on Broadway is setting up shop in West End, London. The opening is planned for summer 2016. Open auditions are held for August & September 2015. I’m very excited that the musical comes to Europe. Here’s hoping that Stage Entertainment, the biggest musical producer in Europe, sets Aladdin up in Holland in the 2017-2018 theatrical season. lists the audtions exact dates.


Scott Weinger reuntions with his “Full House” costars in “Fuller House”

I expected this news to come out sooner or later but now Scott Weinger himself confirmed it, His character “Steve Hale” has making an appearance in the Full House sequel Fuller House. After All he had a big part in the show in later seasons.

As you might remember he was DJ’s boyfriend for a couple of seasons before they broke up and she got into other guys. Steve did return for the last episode of the series to take DJ to her High School Prom.

My guess is that the makers of Fuller House wanted the main cast together before looking at other big guest roles. I wonder how they included Steve into the series. Speculation says Steve has passed away after marring DJ and starting a family with her. This because the premise of Fuller House is about widow DJ raising her daughters with the help of Steph and Kimmey Kibbler

Visual Development from Aladdin by K. Sean Sullivan

It’s a beautiful piece of work Although credited to K. Sean Sullivan I have my doubts because of the following reasons. On her own blog, see link in Thumblr post above, she says she didn’t get to work at Disney before 1993 and her Disney credits start at Pocahontas. Second IMDB doesn’t list a  K. Sean Sullivan or any variants.
