Disney Theatrical’s new Broadway musical Frozen has released a new video that takes you behind the scenes at the company’s sitzprobe rehearsal from the show’s out-of-town tryout in Denver, CO last summer. Watch as the cast and creative time hear the Broadway score played by a full orchestra for the first time (the rehearsal known as a ‘sitzprobe’), and listen to clips of some of the 12 new songs written by Academy Award®-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez for the Broadway musical.
Frozen will join Disney Theatrical hits Aladdin and The Lion King on Broadway, beginning performances at the St. James Theatre on Thursday, February 22, 2018 and opening Thursday, March 22, 2018. Tickets are on sale now. Visit FrozenTheMusical.com for more information.
This Broadway-bound Frozen, a full-length stage work told in two acts, is the first and only incarnation of the tale that expands upon and deepens its indelible plot and themes through new songs and story material from the film’s creators; in fact, this new stage production features more than twice as much music as the film. Like the Disney Theatrical Broadway musicals that have come before it, it is a full evening of theatre running over two hours.
