PRAISE FOR DISNEY ALADDIN: A WHOLE NEW WORLD
"Looking like an artifact from the Cave of Wonders-all goldedged pages and padded silk cover-this sumptuous volume, created by Welcome Enterprises (responsible for the previous book on the making of the Poppins musical by Michael Lassell and myself), takes the reader, as the title suggests, on the theatrical journey that led Tom Schumacher and his creative colleagues to bring the popular animated film with its Broadway-style score by Menken, Ashman and Rice to Broadway itself. Lassell introduces us to everyone involved in the process from the set, costume, make-up and lighting designers via the wizardry responsible for a magically-appearing Genii and a flying carpet to the cast who brought Aladdin and his friends and foes to life on stage."—Brian Sibley, writer, broadcaster, and Disney scholar

PRAISE FOR THE LITTLE MERMAID: FROM THE DEEP BLUE SEA TO THE GREAT WHITE WAY

"The 176-page book written by Michael Lassell is richly illustrated with drawings by the show's set and costume designers, archival images from the Disney vault, never-before-seen shots of the rehearsal process, and dozens of dazzling full-color photographs of The Little Mermaid that gives readers a front-row seat for the creative process from beginning to end."
