"Frozen" the Broadway Musical Coming in 2018
It has been a wild day for Frozen fans. First the announcement of a holiday special. Then later on the announcement that the long awaited Broadway musical adaption is coming in 2018.
The musical is set to hit Broadway in Spring of 2018. Disney has been working on the production to capitalize on the success of Frozen-mania. Stage production is already happening to make realistic and amazing sets for the show. Disney has already made efforts to turn Frozen into a Broadway style show at their theme parks. At Disney's California Adventure, A Frozen musical replaced Aladdin the musical. The thinking behind this decision (which received a lot of negativity) is that Disney wants to work out the kinks on a smaller platform before going onto Broadway.
When Disney was developing Aladdin: The Musical they ran into many problems with telling the story. They made multiple changes to make the show more entertaining. Now Aladdin is a smash hit on Broadway, so they obviously know what they are doing.
Even though the details are limited, the cast hasn't been announced and it probably won't be until the time gets closer. Disney already has set and costume designers Bob Crowley and Nathan Katz for the production. Both designers are Tony Award winners for the Disney Theatrical Production of Tarzan.
The Broadway musical will also bring back the original creative team of Frozen, including writer Jennifer Lee and composers Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.
Frozen rolls onto Broadway in Spring 2018.
