About the show
A favourite among little ones the world over, the movie Frozen won a glittering host of awards, including a BAFTA, a Golden Globe, two Academy Awards and two Grammy Awards. The tale introduces Anna and Elsa, sister princesses whose close bond is threatened when Elsa's peculiar powers force her to isolate herself from the world. Her magical ability to create ice and snow, once a treasured gift, now seems an ominous hazard and has trapped the kingdom in perpetual winter. Devoted Anna sets out to find her in order to end the winter and bring her long-lost sibling home. Along the way, she assembles a small but loyal band of allies.
The story was adapted into a musical show for Broadway, starring a mix of Broadway and West End performers alongside newer talent. Patti Murin played Anna while Caissie Levy took on the role of Elsa.
The new production boasts direction from Michael Grandage. Set and costume designs are the work of Christopher Oram, lighting design is by Natasha Katz and choreography comes from Rob Ashford. Sound design is by Peter Hylenski while video design is courtesy of Finn Ross. There is puppet design by Michael Curry, and musical supervision and arrangements from Stephen Oremus.
Frozen the Musical has a book by Jennifer Lee and features music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.
