ALADDIN's Major Attaway Talks With Deborah Howell On Becoming The Genie

March 11, 2019

Major Attaway is currently starring in Disney's Aladdin at the Segerstrom Center For The Arts in Costa Mesa and is stealing the show every single night.  I chatted with him about how he prepared for this ultra-juicy role, about how he ever gets to sleep after a performance, and about what's the best and worst thing about playing the role of the Genie.
