Frozen The Musical On Its Way To Broadway
Frozen The Musical
We’ve all sung the songs and gave warm hugs, but now the smash movie hit Frozen is opening up the doors to Broadway. The Disney Theatrical Group has launched a micro-site dedicated to Frozen The Musical. Announced last month by Walt Disney’s CEO and chairman Bob Iger, Frozen The Musical is sure to be music to the ears of fans as well as to the Disney shareholders. Frozen’s huge success at at the box office has allowed it to gross $369,080.767 domestically and $914,180,767 worldwide, putting it up there with the all time great animated moves like The Lion King and Toy Story.
Frozen, loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen, is an epic story of a young girl Anna, voiced by Kristen Bell, who sets out to save her sister Elsa, voiced by Idina Menzel, from the magical powers she holds inside. Accompanied by Kristoff (Aaron Tveit), a strong but yet adorable mountain man, Sven, a cute, carrot loving reindeer and Olaf (Joel Grey), a cuddly singing snowman who loves summer, she sets off to find her sister and bring her home after Elsa accidentally freezes summer.
The Music Of Frozen
Filled with some great songs like Let It Go and Do You Want To Build A Snowman?, Frozen The Musical is sure to please the Broadway audience. In addition to the the music that made it into the movie, the writers Bobby Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez created seven additional songs which didn’t make it into the movie, I would expect some of these to make it into the musical.
Don’t plan on rushing out to find tickets anytime soon as Iger tell Fortune “We’re not demanding speed, we’re demanding excellence.” As will all Disney theatrical productions, expectations will be high and so will the desire for tickets from fans.
Details as to whether Frozen The Musical will be a Broadway only show or will also have a traveling cast have not been reveled, but Behind The Mouse will keep you up to date with details as they become available.
