As part of the theater’s upcoming season, the Denver Center for the Performing Arts announces Frozen – The Musical, arriving at the Buell Theatre as it travels across the United States for its North American Tour.
This musical is an adaptation of the animated film “Frozen” that won Oscars for Best Song (“Let It Go”) and Best Animated Feature. It features two acts, approximately two hours and fifteen minutes long, with one intermission. Based loosely on Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Snow Queen,” the plot contains dark elements involving parents’ deaths and the challenges of sisterhood. This adaptation has been updated to resist oversimplified ideas of good and bad, as well as self-acceptance and empowerment.
The story introduces Princess Elsa and her younger sister Princess Anna during the first act. Elsa possesses ice magic, which accidentally injures Anna during a playtime incident in their younger years. Fearing this uncontrolled power, Elsa isolates herself from the outside world and seeks help from the hidden folk to alter Anna’s memories but falls short when she reveals this later on during her coronation ceremony. She flees and, in doing so, accidentally plunges Arendelle into an eternal winter. With the help of ice harvester Kristoff, his reindeer Sven, and an enchanted snowman Olaf, Anna bands together to search for Elsa, who is tucked away in an ice palace born out of her growing magic.
“A theatrical extravaganza that delivers. There are screams, cheers, tears, and the effect is genuinely electric!” – New York Magazine.
“The Hottest Snow on Broadway!” – Vanity Fair
In the second act, the group reaches the ice palace, where Elsa accidentally freezes Anna’s heart. They set out to find the hidden folk, who reveal that “an act of true love” can reverse the tragic spell. Will Elsa realize the key to controlling her powers? Or will the kingdom’s eternal winter become their downfall? Audiences will discover how true love’s power can solve the mess these characters have gotten themselves into.

Dorset, an African American who plays Kristoff in the musical, is interviewed by Broadway World, where he shares his experience working with the production. “I was ecstatic, obviously,” he said. “Disney has a track record of producing fantastic musicals out of original movies with The Lion King and Aladdin. Frozen is a story everybody loves, and the film already had great music, so it was likely that it would become a very entertaining Broadway show.”
Written by a trio of Oscar winners, the production features music by the creators of the film score EGOT-winner Robert Lopez along with Kristen Anderson-Lopez, and a book by Jennifer Lee, the film’s screenwriter and director.
