Don Darryl Rivera, affectionately called “DDR,” originated the role of Iago in Disney’s Aladdin on Broadway! Originally hired to develop the character during the show’s pre-Broadway tryout in Seattle, he was quickly asked to stay on board once the show went to Broadway. He’s been with the show ever since! As an actor, playwright, composer, and puppeteer, DDR is eager to talk to you about all sides of the theater world! He loves connecting with fellow Disney lovers for meet-and-greets and lessons! Be sure to ask him why he considers his journey to Broadway “unicorn-like”!
