Frozen is going to be one of Broadway’s most anticipated musicals, so I thought it deserved its own thread here in the forums. After months of rumors, several key details have already been confirmed. Frozen will indeed open in spring 2018 at the St. James Theatre, following a summer 2017 run at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts in Denver, Colorado. To accommodate certain aspects of the show, such as Elsa’s ice castle, the St. James will undergo extensive renovations.
Michael Grandage is confirmed to direct the show, and Christopher Oram will design both the sets and costumes. They replace original director Alex Timbers and original designer Bob Crowley. Robert Lopez and Kristin Anderson-Lopez will add several more songs to their original score from the film, and the film’s screenwriter and director Jennifer Lee will write the show’s book.October 24, 2016 at 12:39 pm #1201938863
A month-long developmental lab for Frozen is being held in New York City, starting today. No casting has been announced, but this also confirms the rumors that Christopher Gatelli has replaced original choreographer Peter Darling. http://www.playbill.com/article/stage-adaptation-of-disneys-frozen-getting-month-long-lab-in-ny-starting-todayDecember 5, 2016 at 12:22 pm #1201962334

I wonder why Betsy Wolfe isn’t continuing? I’m not sure Caissie Levy is the best choice. I’ve always found her power belt a bit suspect.April 17, 2017 at 2:38 pm #1202068985
I suspect Betsy Wolfe isn’t continuing because she’s taking over for Sara Bareilles in Waitress this summer.April 17, 2017 at 2:40 pm #1202068986
And from this report, Rob Ashford will now be the show’s choreographer.April 17, 2017 at 3:27 pm #1202069023
I doubt Betsy Wolfe would back out of opening a Disney mega-musical to be the second replacement in the aging Waitress. This must be one of those changes that comes with a change in the creative team.June 16, 2017 at 3:26 pm #1202123465
