Disney’s “Frozen” is heading to Broadway along with Anna, Elsa and Olaf, too.
The new musical production is slated to hit the stage in spring 2018, but fans are getting a sneak peek at what’s in store for the adaptation in a new behind-the-scenes preview.
While original voice cast members Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel and Josh Gad won’t be starring in the production, the movie’s original writers and composers are all involved to bring the film’s beloved songs plus a few new, original tunes to audiences. In fact, there will be so much music, the Broadway play will feature twice the amount of songs as the animated movie as the story extends beyond the movie’s boundaries.
Like the Disney stage musicals that have come before it, “Frozen” will have a limited trial run in Denver between Aug. 17 and Oct. 1, 2017, with Broadway opening dates to be announced in the coming months.
With Tony-winning talent behind-the-scenes with director Michael Grandage and choreographer Rob Ashford, the cast includes Broadway veterans Cassie Levy as Elsa and Patti Murin as Anna.
