'Frozen' musical is headed to Broadway

Winter is coming to Broadway in the spring of 2018. A new stage musical based on the hugely popular animated Disney movie "Frozen" is officially slated for a New York opening two years from now, Disney Theatrical Productions announced Tuesday. A pre-Broadway tryout will be held beginning in the summer of 2017.

Alex Timbers, director of the Broadway production of "Peter and the Starcatcher" and co-writer and co-creator of the recent Golden Globe-winning Amazon series "Mozart in the Jungle," will helm the musical adaptation. Peter Darling, known for his Tony-winning work in "Billy Elliot," will choreograph.
