As if being the most acclaimed Disney princess movie in years wasn’t enough, Frozen has transitioned to the Broadway stage, adding musical bravado to “Let It Go” and earning a trio of Tony nominations in the process. Now, the show is ready to expand beyond New York. The Frozen adaptation is launching a North American tour in fall 2019, and will officially open at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles during the 2019-2020 season.
Casting information and additional stops on the tour will be announced at a later date.
Frozen was adapted for the stage by key members of the film’s creative team, including writer Jennifer Lee and the songwriting duo of Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. The latter Lopez is the only person in history to double EGOT, and Frozen has already earned Tony nominations for Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score.
EW’s B+ review from March praised the musical for taking the original movie and turned it “into something a little sleeker, a little deeper, and a little more sophisticated, all without losing its most beloved elements.”
