Here’s your chilling first look at the stars of Frozen The Musical in costume!
The musical was announced early last year, while initial principal casting, including Wicked alums Caissie Levy and Patti Murin as Elsa and Anna respectively, was revealed in April of this year.
Revealed in Entertainment Weekly, the photo shows the musical’s four principal actors in full costume. There are some noticeable changes from the costumes seen in the 2013, most notably on Prince Hans (played by John Riddle) and Kristoff (played by Jelani Alladin). Anna (Patti Murin)’s design doesn’t stray too far away from the original costume, and last but not least is Elsa (Caissie Levy)’s royal gown and cape, which the ice queen wears during her big number Let It Go.
Frozen keeps three major players from the film’s creative team, songwriting duo Bobby Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez and screenwriter Jennifer Lee, who will take on writing the musical’s book.
Michael Grandage will be directing the show (taking the reigns from Alex Timbers, who was slated to direct when the show was first announced early last year), with choreography by Rob Ashford, sets and costumes by Christopher Oram, and musical arrangement by Stephen Oremus.
Frozen will begin with a pre-Broadway engagement at Denver’s Buell Theatre later this month, before opening on Broadway at the St. James Theatre in the spring of 2018.
