Don’t Let It Go, it’s com­ing to Lon­don...

Wales On Sunday - - NEWS -

THE mu­si­cal adap­ta­tion of Frozen is com­ing to the UK.

Fol­low­ing a suc­cess­ful ini­tial run on Broad­way, Frozen the Mu­si­cal is set to head to Lon­don’s West End in 2020.

While the show has been met with a du­bi­ous re­cep­tion from crit­ics, it has proven very pop­u­lar with au­di­ences.

The pro­duc­tion is ex­pected to come to the The­atre Royal Drury Lane some time in 2020, Mir­ror On­line re­ports.

While there has been no of­fi­cial an­nounce­ment, a deal has been done be­tween the the­atre and Dis­ney Theatri­cals.

The Daily Mail pre­dicts a pro­duc­tion in 2020, likely in the au­tumn.

Lovers of the Dis­ney sen­sa­tion will be de­lighted at the news.

The mu­si­cal is di­rected by Brit Michael Grandage and fea­tures mu­sic by Kris­ten An­der­son-Lopez and Robert Lopez – the song­writ­ing cou­ple hav­ing won an Os­car for global hit Let It Go.

Grandage, along with the afore­men­tioned song­writ­ers and book writer Jen­nifer Lee will be in charge of adapt­ing the mu­si­cal for the UK, and it is ex­pected some mi­nor changes will be made, in the hope of im­prov­ing the show.

On Broad­way the show has earned it­self three Tony nom­i­na­tions, but the crit­i­cal re­cep­tion to it has been luke­warm.

It is not con­firmed yet who will be play­ing the main char­ac­ters, and whilst Cassie Levy has done a stel­lar job play­ing Elsa, there is a chance that the show will be re­cast with Bri­tish ac­tors.

Fur­ther, the re­port spec­u­lates that some of the 20 songs that were per­formed in Broad­way may be jet­ti­soned in favour of a tighter script.
