Why See Disney's Frozen: The Broadway Musical?
Frozen opens in February 2018
Fanfares please! Disney made headlines when they announced that the long-awaited musical adaptation of the top-selling animated movie of all time would be coming to Broadway in Spring 2018! Anna, Elsa, Olaf and Kristoff et al will be brought to life onstage by original composer and lyrics team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who between them have cultivated many Broadway hits including In Transit, The Book Of Mormon, and Avenue Q, as well as winning the 2014 Academy Award For Best Original Song for "Let It Go".
THE STORY OF TWO SISTERS
If you're not already familiar with the story, where have you been?! Loosely based on Hans Christian Anderson's fairytale The Snow Queen, the story takes place in the Scandinavian surrounds of Arendelle, where two royal sisters, Elsa and Anna must grow up alone after losing their parents in a tragic sea accident.
Elsa, the elder of the two must also contend with a secret - she has the power to create ice and snow with her bare hands, which she must keep secret, even from her sister, who nearly died whilst playing together as little girls. Anna by contrast is a sunny, albeit naive young lady who yearns for the outside world, having been isolated from Elsa since the accident.
When Elsa comes of age, she must take the throne as Queen, and the kingdom is reopened for her coronation - just for one day. Anna meets a handsome and charming Prince called Hans, who she instantly wishes to marry, much to Elsa's consternation. When the argument inadvertently reveals Elsa's powers, she flees to the wild North Mountain to live out a life of solitude and freedom. But Anna must find her sister and bring her back (with the help of an ice-seller, his reindeer and a talking snowman), otherwise the fate of Arendelle will be frozen forever, and left to the mercy of a cruel power.

With the original songs from the movie including "Do You Want To Make A Snowman?", "In Summer", "The First Time In Forever" and of course the iconic "Let It Go", there is the possibility of new original songs to be written for the show!
