Time Out says
The musical version of the most successful animated film ever finally comes to London
In the autumn of 2020 extremely venerable Theatre Royal Drury Lane will emerge from over a year of lavish upgrade and restoration works to play host to what is surely set to be the biggest show of the year: Michael Grandage’s musical adaptation of Disney’s ‘Frozen’, aka the most successful animated film of all time. Grandage’s lavish take has been running on Broadway for a while now, and the general feeling is that while it doesn’t do anything to reinvent the wheel, it absolutely does enough to transport fans of the film back to their beloved Arendelle and the complicated relationship between sisters Elsa and Anna (the former being possessed of powers over ice and snow, lest we forget). As with the film, the songs are by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, and yes, that does include that song, with remarkable restraint only included once.
There are no official dates yet, but it has been declared that it will open in ‘autumn 2020’. And there’s one bit of casting now announced: musical theatre actress Samantha Barks will play frosty antagonist Elsa.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public March 6 2020.
