Disney’s Frozen musical confirms 2020 West End transfer

Hold on to your woolly hats, as the rumours have been confirmed! Disney’s Frozen musical, soon to celebrate its first anniversary on Broadway, is coming to the West End.

In news set to warm everyone’s hearts, Frozen will open the newly refurbished Theatre Royal Drury Lane in Autumn 2020. It’ll be produced by Disney Theatrical Productions and will feature all of Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez’s iconic music and lyrics, including the Academy Award-winning Best Original Song, Let It Go.

Based on the globe-conquering 2013 film of the same name – which became the highest grossing animated film of all time – Frozen the musical is directed by Michael Grandage, and opened on Broadway in March 2018. It was subsequently nominated for the Tony Award for Best Musical last year, and will soon embark on a North American tour, with productions opening in Australia in 2020 and Hamburg in 2021.

More information about Frozen The Musical, including booking details, performance scheduling and casting, will be announced at a later date. Audiences are invited to sign up for priority booking at FrozenTheMusical.co.uk.

The news (ice)caps a spectacular year so far for Frozen fans, as the Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA Award-winning film is set to release its sequel, Frozen 2, in UK cinemas this November.

Michael Grandage said of the news, “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.”

Thomas Schumacher, President & Producer Disney Theatrical Productions, added, “Michael Grandage has created a production that is as full of heart and joy as it is spectacle. It will be an honour to reopen Andrew Lloyd Webber’s gorgeously refurbished Theatre Royal Drury Lane, one of the crown jewels of London’s West End.”

And writers Anderson-Lopez and 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.”

It promises to be a sterling couple of years for Disney fans in the West End: Disney’s The Lion King celebrates its 20th anniversary at the Lyceum Theatre this year, and Mary Poppins returns to its original London home, the Prince Edward Theatre, in October. This comes at the conclusion of Disney’s Aladdin run in August.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
