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