Frozen on Broadway
You’re invited to discover that love is a force of nature... at Disney’s new musical, "Frozen."
For the first time, "Frozen" comes to life on Broadway, re-imagined for the stage in a new production by an award-winning team.
This is the timeless tale of a family pulled apart by a mysterious secret. Both are searching for love. They just don’t know how to find it.
The show’s expanded score features twice as many songs as the original film, all written by the husband-and-wife composing team of Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.
Tell Me More
With great power comes great responsibility. When Princess Elsa of Arendelle discovers she has the ability to turn ordinary objects into ice — including the heart of her playful younger sister, Anna — she distances herself from her family and vows to never let her force become fatal. Years later, after both their parents have died and when Elsa is to be crowned Queen, her powers prove to be stronger than ever. After Anna upsets Elsa at her public coronation, Elsa storms out and accidentally unleashes her power before the court, turning the entire city of Arendelle to ice.
Trying her best to accept her fate as an outcast of society and simply let it go, Elsa isolates herself in a frozen fortress. Proving that the power of love is far stronger than any amount of magic, Anna sets out on an epic quest to rescue her sister from the monster she believes herself to be. Based on the Disney animated film, with new songs from Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the musical take a new look at the tale of sisterhood and true love.
What To Watch For
- Shortly after “Frozen” opened on Broadway, Patti Murin (who stars as Anna) bravely opened up about her struggle with anxiety. “Even Disney princesses are terrified sometimes,” she wrote.
- Caissie Levy, who stars as Elsa, was not originally cast in the initial phases of “Frozen.” After a workshop of the Disney musical, the creative team reopened casting, and director Michael Grandage asked Levy to come in and re-audition.
- “Frozen” made history by having Elsa, a princess, don pants in the show’s second act instead of a dress.
- “Frozen” had a pre-Broadway tryout at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, where Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” stage adaptation also had its start.
- The production’s show art, of the musical’s snow queen enclosed in an intricate icicle, is by London-based artist Olly Moss — picked from over 100 designs.
