Over the last few weeks, we’ve kept you updated with the four new songs from the Broadway version of Frozen, that Disney released in the month before the official opening night. As for the day of the official premiere, March 22, Disney released the trailer of their newest Broadway production.
In the trailer we get a glimpse of the story, directed by Michael Grandage, with the well-known characters Elsa (Caissie Levy), Anna (Patti Murin), Kristoff (Jelani Alldin), Olaf (Greg Hildreth), and Hans (John Riddle). They perform at a stage with stunning sets that seem to come alive with kinetics, light, and a much larger cast full of talented people. You can watch the trailer of Frozen the Musical below.
It looks like Disney did a great job of bringing the 2013-film to the stage. Perhaps this is because Jennifer Lee, original co-director and screenwriter of Frozen, returned to the writing table for this production. If it is not for her, we might thank Oscar-winning songwriter duo Robert Lopez and Kristin Anderson-Lopez, that provided twelve new tracks for this Broadway production.
As written, you can already listen to four of the new songs (warning: do not blame us is these get stuck in your head!):
- Monster, a ballad by Elsa;
- What Do You Know About Love?, a duet by Anna and Kristoff;
- Dangerous to Dream, Elsa’s interior monologue from act 1;
- True Love, a solo by Anna from act 2.
Frozen the Musical is now playing at the St. James Theatre and tickets can be bought on the official website. The Guardian gives the show three out of five stars and addresses some critical points in their review, that you can read here. Let us know in the comments what you think about the trailer and if you are going to see the snow.. uhm, show!
