Initial principal casting has been announced for Broadway’s “Frozen,” the new musical based on Disney’s Academy Award-winning musical film. As previously reported, the show will play the Denver Center for the Performing Arts’ Buell Theatre August 17–October 1 before arriving on Broadway in spring 2018 at the St. James Theatre, according to Playbill.com.
The cast will be led by Caissie Levy and Patti Murin as Arendelle’s royal sisters.
Levy, who last appeared on Broadway as Fantine in the revival of “Les Miserables,” will create the role of Elsa, a young woman wrestling with powers beyond her comprehension or control. Levy’s additional credits include “Ghost” and “Hair,” both in the West End and on Broadway, as well as Broadway’s “Wicked” and “Hairspray”.
Murin, who made her Broadway debut in “Xanadu” and has since appeared on the New York stage in “Lysistrata Jones,” “Lady, Be Good!”, and “Love Labour’s Lost,” will star as Elsa’s younger sister Anna, who tries to reconnect with the person once closest to her.
Single tickets for the Denver engagement, which start at $25 with a limit of eight tickets per account, will go on sale May 1 at 10 AM MT at DenverCenter.org. Tickets for the Broadway production will go on sale later this year.
