St. James Theatre | New York City, New York
Frozen – The Musical is coming to St James Theatre, get the whole family ready! Your little ones may have been obsessed with Elsa and the gang for years now, but you are not sure if the play is worth it for the adult members of your group? Well, let us help with that! According to critics, Frozen' hits Broadway, in ‘a sophisticated dignified adult psychological' way. The writers of the most popular animated film of all time aren't just simply ‘letting it go’ — they've written a dozen new songs for a very sold-out theatrical adaptation. The sets are striking and elaborate, and the costumes bring the world of Arendelle to life. Of course, the highlight in terms of theatrics has to be “Let It Go,” which involves Elsa’s dress reveal just as does in the film. It’s a striking moment that plays even better in real life. And what makes it even more magnificent is the added experience of the “snow” fall, which covers the entire audience with white flakes. So, rest assured, Frozen – The Musical will be a unforgettable night for the whole family! Book your tickets now!
Many critics were unsure about Frozen: The Musical when it was first presented. The idea that any director could capture the full magic of the animated film in a live stage format seemed impossible. But Disney Theatrical Productions was more than happy with the challenge. It all began with finding the best talent to expand on the work. Many fans were thrilled to learn that original film composers, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez were recalled to score the musical. A song list that numbered 8 songs in the film was expanded to an amazing 20 songs. Mark Shenton wrote in The Stage that the musical choices had “surging power ballads that are the score’s signature and are stunningly delivered…” While some reviewers argue that the story slows down in the second act, many more reviewers agree that the performance is incredible and enjoyable. Theater lovers will not be disappointed by Frozen: The Musical!
