Het duurt nog even, maar in 2018 moet het gaan gebeuren.
For the first time in forever (OK, in about a year), we have an update on the highly-anticipated Frozen musical! The Broadway adaptation of the Oscar-winning animated film will hit the Great White Way in Spring 2018. As previously speculated, Alex Timbers will direct. Tony winner Peter Darling will choreograph.
The musical, featuring the beloved songs (and some new ones) by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez and a book by screenwriter Jennifer Lee, will first play an out-of-town tryout in August 2017. A location will be announced at a later date.
Timbers received a Tony nomination for directing Peter and the Starcatcher, as well as for the book of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson (which he also directed). His additional directing credits on the Great White Way include Rocky and Here Lies Love. He is also a co-creator and co-writer of the Amazon series Mozart in the Jungle. Darling won a Tony Award in 2009 for choreographing Billy Elliot; he also earned a nomination for Matilda–and won Oliviers for both.
The production has an all-star design team lined up: set and costume designer Bob Crowley, lighting designer Natasha Katz and sound designer Peter Hylenski.
No word yet on casting for the musical, so start lining up, belters.
