Actor Jonathan Freeman has reprised his role as Aladdin villain Jafar in the Broadway adaptation of the hit 1992 Disney film. He tells People magazine, "It's a privilege to play the character for such a long time. I was leaving the theatre, and somebody said, 'You sounded just like the guy in the movie!'" The musical, which first debuted in Seattle, Washington in 2011, is due to open at the New Amsterdam Theatre on Thursday night (20Mar14).
