Subscribe to Channel 95.7 on

Robin Williams brought so many fantastically funny, inspiring, and downright quirky characters to life. But a favorite among many is that of Genie from Disney’s Aladdin.

On Tuesday night, the cast of the Broadway version of Aladdin led the audience in a sing-along of the song “Friend Like Me.” And now there’s something in my eye. Is it dusty in here?Via the Associated Press:

James Monroe Iglehart, who won a Tony Award as the Genie, led the crowd at the New Amsterdam Theatre on Tuesday in a rousing version of “Friend Like Me” after the curtain went down. The show’s Playbills had been stuffed with the song’s lyrics and everyone was encouraged to sing along.

The lights were also dimmed Wednesday night on Broadway in memory of the Williams who was not only an actor but also a theater veteran. Williams’ comedy show Robin Williams: Live on Broadway debuted in 2002,  and more recently he performed a tiger ghost in 2011’s Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo.
