On March 22nd Disney’s “Frozen” marks its one-year anniversary on Broadway. The musical debuted in New York’s St. James Theatre and has become a hit with fans over the past twelve months. The Broadway production has remained in the ten best-selling shows every week since its opening, and has grossed more than any new Broadway musical since Hamilton. “Frozen” has also become a bit of a record breaker, setting four St. James Theatre house records in less than a year.
To celebrate all of that success, Disney Theatrical Productions announced a worldwide expansion for the musical, with productions set for Australia, London and Germany. New York will have to have to say goodbye to its exclusive run of the hit musical, and just ‘let it go’ so everyone around the world can enjoy the award-winning production.
“Jennifer Lee, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Bobby Lopez have crafted a gorgeous stage musical and we’re so grateful that Broadway has taken it to its heart,” said Thomas Schumacher, President & Producer, Disney Theatrical Productions. “That’s why every production will be handmade, with our brilliant director Michael Grandage and original creators working alongside the local teams to create the very best Frozen for each particular audience. We cannot wait to begin.”
The first international production of “Frozen” will be in Sydney, Australia at the Capitol Theatre in July 2020. After that, “Frozen” hits the West End in London, England in fall 2020 to reopen the Theatre Royal Drury Lane. Disney also plans a new production in Hamburg, Germany in 2021. There’s already a North American tour scheduled to begin this fall, with the first performance planned for the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, California, on December 4, 2019.

The production is based on the 2013 Oscar-winning hit “Frozen.” Disney Theatrical Productions produced the Broadway production under the direction of Thomas Schumacher.
The production also includes two-time Tony and Olivier Award-winning costume designer Christopher Oram, Tony-winning lighting designer Natasha Katz, Tony-nominated sound designer Peter Hylenski, and Tony-winning video designer Finn Ross.
The crew also includes puppet designer Michael Curry, hair designer David Brian Brown, makeup designer Anne Ford-Coates, and special effects designer Jeremy Chernick.
Tony Award-winning music supervisor Stephen Oremus leads the music team, joined by Tony nominee Dave Metzger, Chris Montan, David Chase, and Brian Usifer, the music director.
Earlier this year, Disney released a first-look trailer for “Frozen 2,” which is scheduled to hit theaters on November 22, 2018.
