Show Summary - Frozen The Musical

In 2013, the Disney animated film Frozen took the world by storm. The movie made three records, including the highest grossing animated film in history, the highest grossing film in the year 2013 as well as the third highest grossing original film ever. It won two Academy Awards, for Best Animated Film, and for Best Original Song: “Let It Go,” as performed by Idina Menzel (WickedRentIf/Then). The film had songs written by husband and wife composing team Bobby Lopez (Avenue Q, The Book of Mormon) and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (Up Here). The duo has now adapted their musical film into a Broadway stage musical, which incorporates the film’s hit songs including “Let It Go,” but also has a slew of new songs, including “True Love.”

The book for the musical is written by Jennifer Lee, who wrote and co-directed the film, and also played the voice part of Elsa and Anna’s mother. The show's original director was the wunderkind Alex Timbers, who has directed successful musicals including Bloody Bloody Andrew JacksonRockyHere Lies Love, and The Pee Wee Herman Show. Timbers' replacement, Michael Grandage, won a 2010 Tony Award for best direction of the play Red.

With incredible design by Christopher Oram (Wolf Hall Parts 1 & 2, Hughie), animated characters such as Olaf, are given new life as inhabited by live performers in skillfully designed costumes. The show is produced by Disney Theatricals, under the leadership of Thomas Schumacher, whose prior successes turning Disney animated films into hit musicals include The Lion KingBeauty and the BeastAladdin, and The Little Mermaid.

Should You See Frozen the Musical On Broadway?

What Is Frozen the Musical Like?

In the story, two sisters, Elsa and Anna, are princesses of Arendelle. The older sister, Elsa, possesses special powers that allow her to produce ice, snow and frost at will, or sometimes against her will. When Anna accidentally injures her younger sister Elsa as a child, their parents isolate Anna alone in a castle, and thus she becomes an ice queen. When Elsa disappears on the eve of her coronation, Anna embarks on a journey, along with iceman Kristoff, a snowman named Olaf and a reindeer named Sven, finding her sister trapped in an eternal winter. It is this heartrending tale that captivated so many people when the film was released, and this plot remains intact in the Broadway adaptation. Along with new songs by the Lopez/Anderson-Lopez songwriting genius team, the Frozen stage musical is an unmissable treat for the entire family.

Is Frozen the Musical Good for Kids?

Yes, the show is designed for children to enjoy as much as their parents, from the young to the young at heart.

Champion Parking On West 45

The closest parking is not always the best as it often takes longer to park and retrieve your vehicle as fellow theatre goers have the same idea. A better choice of parking may be the second choice or further away by a couple of Avenues.
