Disney’s Broadway musical Frozen has confirmed a London run, opening at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in autumn 2020.
Directed by Michael Grandage, the musical stage adaptation of the Academy Award®-winning film will re-open Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane following a £45-million refurbishment.
Grandage said: “Bringing Frozen to the stage has been a gloriously happy journey. We’re all looking forward to getting back in the room together as a creative team, to build our London company and bring Frozen to the West End.”
The musical is produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, whose president, Thomas Schumacher, said: “As Frozen celebrates its first year on Broadway, we’re thrilled to share the London plans for the show.”
A timeless tale of two sisters pulled apart by a mysterious secret, the musical features all the songs from the film including ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman?’, ‘For the First Time in Forever’ and ‘Let It Go’ plus new music written for the production.
The musical has breathtaking costumes and sets designed by Olivier Award-winning Christopher Oram and choreography by Tony, Emmy and Olivier Award winner Rob Ashford. Music and lyrics are by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez with book by Jennifer Lee.
No news on casting or when tickets will go on-sale has been announced.
