What was it about the 2013 film, Frozen, that captivated audiences for years? Was it the music, the characters, the incredible scenery, or more? Many reviewers compare the film to a specially crafted meal with every ingredient adding to the entire experience. That’s why director Michael Grandage took his role as director for Frozen: The Musical extremely seriously. He was fortunate to work with original film composers Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez to create fresh songs to help fill out the newly expanded plot-line. A soundtrack that had 8 musical numbers grew to a full set of 20 songs. While some reviewers felt that some of the songs lacked the punch of the original films, many disagree. For instance, Mark Shenton wrote in The Stage that “the surging power ballads that are the score’s signature…are stunningly delivered…”. But what about the actors or the glorious imagery, because it’s impossible to match the film’s creativity in making evocative sets, right? Well reviewers are in agreement that the sets are creative, evocative, and use the best of Broadway magic to simulate animated precision. Frozen: The Musical may not just be a great time, it may be the best time of the year!
