Frozen: The Musical To Hit The West End Stage In 2020

We are so ready for this.

It’s happening, people – Frozen: The Musical is officially coming to London’s West End.

The stage adaptation of the Disney film has been wowing audiences on Broadway since 2018, and a new production of it will reopen the refurbished Theatre Royal Drury Lane in 2020.

Jennifer Lee, who wrote and co-directed the film and penned the book for the musical, said: “We’re so humbled by the continued support for Frozen - at its heart, a joyous story about love and sisterhood.

“We’re very excited to share what we have created on stage with London and to see it come to life in that gorgeous theatre.”

Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who oversees the music and lyrics, added: “The power of Frozen comes from the story of two strong, very real women saving their world by leaning in to their deep love for one another. Expanding this story has been an absolute joy.

“We went deeper and discovered several song moments that enrich the story in a new emotional and theatrical way.”

Given the 2020 start date, we do have a long wait on their hands, but thankfully there’s a new film coming to tide us over.

Frozen 2 will arrive in cinemas this November and given the popularity of the original, we’re getting ready for seriously big things.

Upon its cinema release, the first film became the highest-grossing animated film of all-time and won two Oscars; Best Animated Feature and Original Song for Let It Go.

The Broadway musical was also nominated for three Tony Awards.

Casting for the London production is yet to be announced.
