Nailing date night is tough. Like, really tough. With bragging Instagram posts to contend with now, dinner up at the local just does not cut it anymore—because if your night doesn’t end up on your significant other’s Insta story, then did it really happen?! (the answer for those playing at home, is no!).
So ladies and gentlemen, we are here with THE best date night idea since that time you went go-karting. Disney’s Aladdin The Musical has everything; costumes, music, Princess Jasmine, and so much nostalgic goodness, it’ll bring a tear to your 12-year-old self’s eye (and your partners!). Plus it’s Christmas, so combine this as being date night AND a Christmas present and you sir, have just ticked two things off your to-do list and got quite a few brownie points along the way. WINNING!
Broadway extraordinaire and the brains behind The Book of Mormon, Casey Nicholaw is at the helm of the hit musical and directs a very legit cast of Ainsley Melham, Hiba Elchke and Michael James Scott, just to name a few, ensuring that you get so much bang for your (date night) buck!
But let's get real; on a level of one to overwhelming-nostalgic-feelings, how good is seeing ‘A Whole New World’ sung live in the flesh? Pack the tissues and prepare to unleash your inner child because just when you thought you saw it all back when you were 12-years-old, in comes Princess Jasmine and Aladdin only five feet away from your bulging colour-filled eyes and all bets are well and truly off!
Afterwards, you can truly charm the pants off your lover with a post-performance feed at one of the taste bud tingling restaurants that line the theatre district. Job well done!
So with Disney’s Aladdin The Musical rolling out of it’s Melbourne stay oh so soon (like 28 January soon), you know what you have to do!
