Watch the Broadway cast of Aladdin lead a ‘Friend Like Me’ sing-along in honour of Robin Williams


It’s been a rough week. Let’s close it out with a brief, beautiful, human moment.

Theatres across Broadway dimmed their lights this week to honour the passing of Robin Williams, but the most moving tribute came from the stage of the New Amsterdam, where the musical Aladdin was being staged.

At the end of the show, James Monroe Iglehart – the Tony winning actor who plays Genie – emerged from behind curtain with the rest of the cast, leading the audience in a rendition of ‘Friend Like Me’: the song made famous by Williams’ own Genie in the 1994 Disney film.
