Wrap up warm because Kristen Anderson-Lopez, Robert Lopez and Jennifer Lee’s stage adaptation of the Disney favourite FROZEN is on its way with the West End production named as the first to open at the newly refurbished Theatre Royal Drury Lane in autumn 2020. Are you ready to let it go?

Michael Grandage said: “Bringing Frozen to the stage has been a gloriously happy journey. We’re all looking forward to getting back in the room together as a creative team, to build our London company and bring Frozen to the West End.”

Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez commented:

“The power of Frozen comes from the story of two strong, very real women saving their world by leaning in to their deep love for one another. Expanding this story has been an absolute joy. We went deeper and discovered several song moments that enrich the story in a new emotional and theatrical way.”

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane is closed for 20 months for a landmark £45 million renovation and restoration project and will reopen as Frozen begins previews. The performance schedule and casting will be announced at a later date.

Frozen – produced by Disney Theatrical Productions under the direction of Thomas Schumacher – opened on Broadway in March 2018 and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Musical. In addition to the opening in London, the musical has a North American tour planned for autumn 2019, productions in Australia and Japan opening in 2020, and a further production for Hamburg in 2021.
