Frozen film vs. musical
Based on Disney's international box office sensation, Frozen the Musical brings your favourite characters back to the stage with even more songs and stories for you to fall in love with all over again.
The 2013 film had 7 original songs, including fan favourites 'Do You Want to Build a Snowman?' and 'Let it Go', when the film was adapted for the stage, the award-winning husband and wife team who provided the music and lyrics for the film came back to the table. Kristen Anderson-Lopez (Coco, Up Here, Winnie the Pooh) and Robert Lopez (The Book of Mormon, Avenue Q) created 12 more original songs for the Broadway musical. The songs mostly focus on deepening the relationships between your favourite characters. The arrangements and songs from the Broadway show will be used in the West End debut of Frozen plus there has been talks of adapting and tweaking the show prior to its arrival in London.
Frozen the Musical cast
The 2013 award-winning film featured the voices of actress Kristen Bell and Broadway superstar and originator of Elphaba in Wicked, Idina Menzel. When Frozen the musical came to life on the Broadway stage it starred a mix of Broadway and West End talent as well as relative newcomers. Patti Murin originated the role of Anna on Broadway after working on the development and workshopping process. The actress also originated the title role of Lysistrata Jones and played Glinda in the first American national tour of Wicked. She also played a recurring role in the American television series Chicago Med. Caissie Levy, who plays Elsa, is no stranger to the stages of Broadway and the West End. In fact, she originated the role of Molly in Ghost the Musical at London's Piccadilly Theatre. She has also played roles in Wicked, Hair, and Les Miserables. A relative newcomer, Jelani Alladin made his Broadway debut starring as Kristoff. Given the talent already assembled in the Broadway cast, it is uncertain at this time if any of them will be making the transfer to the West End, or if the show will be completely recast with British actors.
