Never Had a Friend Like Me

“Aladdin” On Broadway Honors Robin Williams

We’ve never had a friend like him and we’ll never have a friend like him again. In honor of Robin Williams tragic death, the cast of Aladdin honored the comedian and actor through a touching reprise of the show’s signature song. Williams, who played the Genie in the 1993 movie of Aladdin, was saluted by James Monroe Iglehart (who has taken on the role on Broadway) in a very heartwarming rendition of “Never Had a Friend Like Me” sung by the cast, crew, and even the audience. It looks like we have yet another reason to love the show.
