The stage musical is currently warming up in Denver before its big New York transfer next year. Frozen on Broadway will star Patti Murin (Anna), Caissie Levy (Elsa), Jelani Alladin (Kristoff), and John Riddle (Hans). The expanded score will come from Oscar-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who composed the music for the original film as well.
The Broadway version of Frozen is a full-length show divided into two separate acts. Like its stage-ready predecessors, Aladdin and The Lion King, the highly anticipated show is expected to run for over two hours. According to reports, the plot will deepen the existing story and explore new themes by adding songs and elements to the story material. Frozen: The Broadway Musical will take the stage at the St. James Theatre on February 22, 2018.
Get a first glimpse of the upcoming musical below.
Frozen: The Broadway Musical is coming to the St. James Theatre next year. Canadian actress Caissie Levy will be playing Queen Elsa of Arendelle as seen in the sneak peek below. Joining her is Patti Murin who will play her younger sister Anna.
In September 2016, Disney announced that Michael Grandage will serve as director, and Christopher Oram will be the set designer and head costume designer.
In the photo below, Jelani Alladin, who plays Kristoff, snuggles with his co-star Andrew Pizzozi (the reindeer Sven). They could be singing the song “Reindeers Are Better Than People,” which was featured in the animated film.
In this photo, the characters Anna (Murin) and Hans (John Riddle) dance to the tune of “Love Is an Open Door,” another song featured in the movie.
