Before I go into the musical itself, I hereby want to announce that I, Nana Eddy the Brat, will NEVER EVER EVER going to ANY events being held at SUNWAY LAGOON SURF BEACH EVER AGAIN!! not unless they improve on their parking system or someone else drop me off, or someone else is driving or work related.
It was the worst experience I had in finding a parking - even worst than in KL or any other place for that matter. I was there for the first MTV World Stage in 2009 and at that time, I had to walk in the dark from the only parking space I could find for at least 15 minutes! But at least, they provided a parking space - even if it was damn far from the actual venue.
I thought after 2 years, things would have improved, but NO! it gets worst!. I actually spent 2 effing f**king hours just find a parking spot. Oh, and not to mention the rude worker that insist I go out when I haven't even parked! (It was an auto pay parking and I had passed the minutes for free parking coz I was stuck in a jam INSIDE the parking lot). He actually cornered me in with a cones which cause me not able to move at all! So, in the end, I did, what every sensible, hot headed, blood boiled brat would do - run over the cones.
To make it worst, because of the stupid incident of not being able to park, when I arrived at the entrance of the Surf Beach, I was not allowed to go in because the show had already started. OF COURSE IT HAS! I was stuck in the stupid parking lot for 2 hours!!!! And then, when I was complaining about it, they suddenly decided to allow me in, and they LEFT ME alone wondering HOW THE HELL to get to the amphitheater!
|I felt like a lost kitty~|
I mean seriously. You boast of doing big shows, events and everything at your place. That is FINE. It's GREAT. But seriously??? Do something about your parking system will you? It is no use if you have a great place but people can't get to it. It's no good if you aim for ppl to have fun, but even BEFORE entering your place, people are already in a foul mood. It would definitely cloud the whole event. It did for me.
|Also in the same predicament as me, Isaac and My Sis (we came separately)|
About the musical, through the half hour of what is left of the musical, I must say, I was honestly quite shocked at how okay the sound system was - I mean, considering it to be an amphitheater. I thought it would've been worst. Well, it wasn't the best, but it wasn't at all the worst. The stage was beautiful, the lighting was awesome, costumes was colorful and lively. The flame throwers during the opening of act 2 was definitely a good touch on their part.
I don't really like what the main cast wore except for the Genie, and Jasmine unfortunately, look fat in most dresses. I saw her picture without the dresses posted by other fellow bloggers at meet the cast session, and I know she's not fat. What's worst is that her makeup makes her look ugly, compared to the good looking Aladdin.

The casts~~~. Of course, like most people would've find, I love the energetic genie. He plays his role very nicely and he have a lot of witty and humorous lines. His personality was so giddy, that it annoy my sister out of her skin. lols.
Aladdin on the other hand, was charming. I've seen his pictures, and I never thought that I would be enchanted by this prince. I guess he's just not that photogenic, cause seeing him acting in real life, could almost (I repeat ALMOST) make me fall for him. And OMG, does he have the most manly beautiful voice! heheh~
|My favorite song. Both of them sounded beautiful.|

and actually, there were too much promotion of Sunway Lagoon throughout that short half hour. It kinda get on people's nerve. However, the snowing part on the show was quite a nice surprise. It creates a blissful and beautiful ambiance of sort.
|Love the Snow, But hate the ugly Tiara.|
Here's a sneak peak of "A Whole New World". But let me warn you, this recording feels nothing like watching it real life and letting their beautiful voices fill up your ears. You have to go there and listen to them yourself to really feel what I mean. This clip is credited to www.enveeus.com
Should you watch it? I'd say go if you don't mind the troubles I had. Should you pay to watch it? That one is up to you. I'd say it's still ok, but hey, I watched it for free. Enveeus would've said go for it! but Tony would've said No Way! Click on their names to read their review :)
That's it from the Brat,
