The hit Broadway adaptation for Disney’s Frozen will kick off its North American tour in fall 2019.
Anna and Elsa will make their way across the country beginning with an official opening at the Pantages in Los Angeles. Not a lot is known about the tour as the itinerary has yet to be set and casting has yet to be announced. What is known is that the production will keep its musical direction of two-time Tony winner Stephen Oremus and conductor Dave Metzger during the tour.
The production opened on Broadway in March and received three Tony nominations for best score, book and musical. Music for the musical was composed by the Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez duo, the book is by Jennifer Lee while Michael Grandage serves as director.
“The only reason to expand this piece into a full-length Broadway musical was to dive much deeper into the idea of a family that can get frozen into dysfunction because of fear and shame,” Anderson-Lopez said of Frozen on-stage adaptation to The Hollywood Reporter. “To come to the theater and sit and have this analog experience with other people, allowing your emotions to really get as big as the emotions onstage, is something that we kind of need, and it can be really healing.”
