Frozen West End: First look as Frozen The Musical comes to London

Disney has revealed a first teaser trailer of Frozen The Musical on The West End.

It was confirmed this week that Frozen The Musical would open at the Drury Lane Theatre from autumn 2020.

Casting for Frozen in The West End has yet to be announced but the current Broadway company – led by Caissie Levy and Patti Murin – will remain in New York.

Instead an all new British cast will be letting it go eight times a week come next year.

A new teaser trailer – which you can watch below – features London’s iconic landmark becoming ‘Frozen’ as news of the musical’s arrival spreads.

Adapted from the hit animated movie, Frozen: The Musical tells the story of sisters Elsa and Anna as Elsa struggles to control her magical ice powers.

The musical features all the big songs from the movie plus more than 10 new ones, all written by husband and wife team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.

As well as originally writing the songs for the film, their other song-writing stage credits range from Avenue Q and Book Of Mormon to In Transit and Up Here.

Last year they also won their second Oscar for ‘Remember Me’ from Disney Pixar’s Coco. They won their first Academy Award for Frozen’s Let It Go in 2014.

Meanwhile, it’s been revealed that the West End production will be notably different to the current Broadway show.

British director Michael Grandage revealed to BBC News: “We don’t want to just replicate a production. We want it to evolve and respond to the time of watching it.

“And so London will offer us an opportunity to make some adjustments, enhance and develop everything.

“We want to give a bespoke production in England. On one level it could be technical, the magic we use in the show, the spectacle… we want to make sure we evolve with the technology that’s available to us.”

Tickets to Frozen on the West End are expected to go on sale later in 2019.
