Heralded by The New Yorker as “thrilling” and “genuinely moving,” “Frozen” has joined Disney Theatrical Productions’ megahit “The Lion King” on tour across North America, and the critics agree, “It’s simply magical!” (LA Daily News).
“Disney’s struck gold! Sumptuous sets, gorgeous costumes, and plenty of special effects to wow the audience!” raves the New York Post. “With the magic, the dancing, and all those iconic tunes, Frozen was born to be a stage musical!” writes the Evening Standard. The Los Angeles Times declares “the North American tour is irresistible in its creativity and verve” and The Hollywood Reporter proclaims that Frozen is “thawing hearts from coast to coast!”
By the end of 2021 there will be five productions of “Frozen” around the world, including Australia, Japan, London and Hamburg. The Tony-nominated Best Musical completed its Broadway run in March 2020 after breaking four house records at The St. James Theatre.
