A Musical Version Of Frozen Is Coming To The West End Next Year

Frozen musical

Yeah, we’re not letting this one go.

Excitement is already building for the release of Frozen 2 this November – definitely heightened by this powerful trailer – and now we have more suspiciously snowy news to deliver. In 2020, an all-singing, all-dancing Frozen musical will arrive in London, transforming the Theatre Royal Drury Lane into an icy wonderland.

Theatre buffs will have had their eyes on this one for a while, as it’s a West End transfer of the quite warmly-received (and Tony-nominated) Broadway original. All your favourite film characters will be making the journey across the pond, including Olaf and Sven the reindeer, brought to life through puppetry.

You can’t accuse the Frozen musical of being a tribute act either, since it shares a writing team with the film. Excitingly, they’ve written a bunch of new songs specially for the show, so it’s no carbon-copy of the film. They’ll have to write something pretty special to top the stirring earworm that is ‘Let It Go’, of course, but props for trying.

Currently, the Frozen musical is slated for a vague opening of autumn 2020, just in time for Elsa to bring a blanket of snow to the capital. See it in late December and you’ll get a white Christmas after all…

You can keep an eye on the news, and sign up for priority updates, on their website.
