As one sister struggles with being an outsider and harnessing her powers within, the other sets out on a thrilling adventure to bring her family together once again. Both are searching for love, but they’ll learn that to find it they’ll have to look inside themselves first.
FROZEN features the songs you know and love from the original Oscar-winning film, plus an expanded score with a dozen new numbers. The creative team at its helm has a won a cumulative 16 Tony Awards and includes Oscar-winner Kristen Anderson-Lopez and EGOT-winner Robert Lopez (music & lyrics), Oscar-winner Jennifer Lee (book), Tony and Olivier Award-winner Michael Grandage (director), and Tony-winner Rob Ashford (choreographer).

He is joined on the music team by Tony-nominee Dave Metzger (orchestrations), Chris Montan (executive music producer), David Chase (additional dance arrangements), and Brian Usifer (music director).
An unforgettable theatrical experience filled with sensational special effects, stunning sets and costumes, and powerhouse performances, FROZEN is everything you want in a musical: It’s moving. It’s spectacular. And above all, it’s pure Broadway joy.
