There was a time in our lives when we couldn’t go through a day without listening to Frozen‘s “Let It Go.” After a few rounds on the videoke and pressing the repeat button on YouTube, our love thawed and we moved on to the next Disney movie (Big Hero 6). But for those who miss the adventures of Elsa and Anna, we have great news: Frozen is being turned into a musical and the trailer is here!
Watch it below:
Disney announced the news last year on Twitter, saying: “It’s official:
#Frozen is coming to Broadway!” The show will premiere in spring 2018, joining other Disney movies like The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, and Aladdin, who have transitioned to the stage.
The musical will feature 21 songs (from the film’s seven), with music and lyrics by songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and her husband Robert Lopez, the Fil-Am EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) winners who also wrote the music for the film. The story will be based on a book written by Frozen‘s screenwriter Jennifer Lee. The musical adaptation will be directed and choreographed by Tony Award-winners Alex Timbers and Peter Darling, respectively.
It will star Caissie Levy as Elsa, Patti Murin as Anna, Jelani Alladin as Kristoff, Greg Hildreth as Olaf, John Riddle as Hans, and Robert Creighton as the Duke of Weselton.
The Frozen musical will have a pre-Broadway tryout at the at the Buell Theatre in Denver this month.
