Disney’s Frozen Broadway production is almost two months old at the St. James Theater in New York. Although the musical received mixed reviews when it premiered, it is already nominated for three Tony Awards, the most important prizes for Broadway productions. Frozen is nominated in the categories Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical (for Jennifer Lee), and Best Original Score (Music and/or Lyrics) Written for Theatre (for Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez). On June 11, 2018, we will know which prizes the musical will get.
This week, Disney shows us the recording of Let It Go by Caissie Levy, who portrays Elsa. Reactions online were very positive for ‘her’ version of this well-known song from the 2013 film. Listen and judge for yourself with the video below:
The song is accompanied with footage of the cast, like Patti Murin and Jelani Alladin that play Anna and Kristoff respectively, preparing for one of the shows. There is also some footage of the final bow and fans of the show afterwards.
Disney also released the official Broadway cast recording of Frozen, featuring this version of Let It Go by Cassie Levy, but also songs like Love Is an Open Door by Patti Murin and John Riddle (Hans). The recording contains all the songs from the musical, which means that the new, original tracks like What Do You Know About Love? by Patti Murin and Jelani Alladin, or Monster by Caissie Levy can also be purchased.
Frozen is still running in New York and tickets can be purchased here. What do you think about this version of Let It Go from Broadway’s Frozen?
