#BroadwayLife Ep. 17 with Jonathan Freeman

This week's #BroadwayLife episode features Jonathan Freeman, who brings to life that sinister Sultan wannabe Jafar in Disney's ALADDIN on Broadway. It's a role he help create 27 years ago for the animated film, adding another iconic Disney villain voice to the history books.

You'd never guess he's originally from Ohio. 😉

In this episode, Jonathan discusses the unusual and surreal experience of recreating a character after so much time has passed, the evolution of Broadway over his long, successful career, and the rise of box-office cache and celebrity culture in the theatre industry.

He also shares how he manages 8 shows a week and how staying open to the audience led him to work on an Oscar-nominated documentary. Plus, you'll learn his advice for living your BEST Broadway life!
