After much anticipation, the 2013 hit movie Frozen finally made its Broadway debut at the St. James Theatre. Despite five years between the movie’s release and the story making its way from the screen to the stage, the anticipation has been building almost as strongly as Elsa’s winter storms.
The wait was long, but it wasn’t without purpose. Disney took care to bring together the best of the best before this tale could make its way to Broadway alongside other Disney stars like The Lion King and Aladdin. The cast, crew, and creatives behind the musical are renowned for their talents. In a 2014 interview with Fortune, Disney CEO Bob Iger commented on the pacing of bringing Frozen to the stage. “We’re not demanding speed. We’re demanding excellence.”
You’ll probably recognize many of the scenes that take place on stage, but the Emmy, Grammy, Tony, and Oscar-winning creative staff have some tricks up their sleeves (and no, they aren’t just snowflakes). The musical includes extra scenes from Anna and Elsa’s epic adventure, including the sisters’ creation of Olaf. How will you keep up? The musical is narrated by one of the “hidden folk” who raises Kristoff and saves Anna from Elsa’s icy mishaps.
“‘Let it Go’ is a showstopper if there ever was one!”
– The New York Times
