The musical adaptation of Frozen made its debut as one of the most eagerly anticipated family-friendly theatrical productions. Adapted from the praised 2013 Disney animated movie Frozen, which garnered extensive praise, this musical spectacle was officially announced by Disney's Chairman Bob Iger in collaboration with Disney Theatrical Productions, on January 13, 2014. The musical’s journey included a pre-Broadway preview in Denver from August 17 to October 1, 2017. Broadway was graced with the musical’s presence as previews commenced on February 22, 2018, at the iconic St. James Theatre, followed by its grand debut on March 22, 2018. The production crew saw this endeavor as a chance to delve deeper into the characters’ backstories and motivations. Consequently, several high-energy sequences from the original film were trimmed, providing more time to highlight the internal struggles of the individuals. As a result, the musical runs for about twenty minutes longer than its cinematic original.
The Guardian, when discussing of the musical, commended its strengths, stating, “It evolves into a uniquely magical creation, featuring creative inventions and even a couple of recently written songs (among which stands out a bold and comedic number, emerging unexpectedly to satirize the Scandinavian concept of hygge, as unclothed characters conga out of a sauna). Beyond the consistently exceptional vocal performances and the impressive stagecraft, what truly surprises is the authentic emotional resonance in the portrayal of the profound bond between the two tormented sisters.”
The everlasting tale of two princesses from Arendale continues to enthrall audiences. The narrative, which perfectly portrays the bond between sisters as they embark on a journey of self-discovery, is both universally relatable and intimately touching. With that said, Frozen the Musical guarantees a not-to-be-missed experience for families of all sizes this spring.
