BroadwayWorld.com shared the following, “Matthew Pomeroy, who plays the title role in the production, got down on one knee in front of the surprised audience and proposed to his Princess Jasmine, Natasha Lamb.
“The last four years you’ve changed my life,” Pomeroy said. “Tash, I love you with all my heart. You’re my best friend and if you’ll let me… I want to share my life with you.”

Comickbook.com explained, “Of course, the audience was blown away by the proposal which Lamb said yes. The moment was made even more special as Pomeroy managed to get both of their parents in attendance for Aladdin that night, so that made Pomeroy more nervous than ever.
“It was scary,” Pomeroy shared with the BBC. “I hadn’t worked out where to put the ring after my costume change for the finale as it didn’t have pockets – so when I bowed I thought it would fall out the belt.”

Comicbook.com continued, “As for Lamb, she said she’s blown away by the ordeal. While some may not want a grand proposal such as this, the actress admitted Pomeroy couldn’t have picked a better place to get down on one knee.
“It’s the best way for us. We spend every day together on stage and shall carry on for however many more years to come,” Lamb said. “It’s a bit of a blur – I’m glad I’ve got the video to watch it back. I had no idea what he was going to do, it was incredible.”
