The Oscar-winning Robert Lopez ( Book of Mormon, Ave Q) and his wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez, the songwriting team behind Disney’s Frozen walked us through the process of bringing the hit animated film to Broadway, with help from Broadway’s Olaf, Greg HIldreth. As a special treat we were treated to the team singing a lot of the score. Then Greg Hildreth sang his song from the show “Summer.”
Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez talked about the four new songs written for the upcoming Broadway musical adaptation which will be released on consecutive Fridays beginning February 23, the day after Frozen‘s first Broadway performance at the St. James Theatre. The four songs include “Monster,” a new Act Two solo for Elsa; “What Do You Know About Love?”, a new duet for Anna and Kristoff; “Dangerous to Dream,” a new interior monologue sung by Elsa; and “True Love,” a new Act Two solo for Anna. The songs will be recorded by the Broadway cast, featuring Caissie Levy (Elsa), Patti Murin (Anna), and Jelani Alladin (Kristoff), and they will be available at FrozenTheMusical.com as well as wherever music is sold or streamed.
Anderson-Lopez and Lopez are also newly Oscar-nominated for Best Original Song for “Remember Me” from Coco.
Frozen begins previews at the St. James Theatre on February 22, 2018, and opens on March 22. Directed by Tony winner Michael Grandage.
