The original Broadway Jasmine will return to Disney’s hit Broadway musical Aladdin for a limited time later this month. Courtney Reed will step back into Jasmine’s slippers beginning Wednesday, October 16th through Sunday, October 27th.
Reed previously held the role on Broadway, opening March 2014 to warm reviews, including The New York Times which declared “Jasmine is played with a likeable touch by Courtney Reed,” and USA Today said “Courtney Reed is a charming Princess Jasmine.” She played the role until January 2018. Since then Reed went on to reprise her role in the North American Tour and was recently part of the closing cast for the West End production.
Some lucky fans have also seen Reed as part of the Broadway Princess Party tour featuring many performers from Disney on Broadway’s musicals.
Here’s Reed’s updated bio for the show Playbill:
