Disney Theatrical’s Frozen began preview performances tonight. While previews are used to tweak a show ahead of its premiere, from the early reaction on Twitter, the show is already a success. Many recognize the cast, particularly Caissie Levy (Elsa) and Patti Murin (Anna). Here are some of the reaction.
I just had my world rocked by @CaissieLevy and @PattiMurin … Two true goddesses. I was GAGGED in the front row tonight. Absolutely stunning and those voices! THANK YOU. @FrozenBroadway What a magical night. ❄️

Halfway through the premiere of @FrozenBroadway and I can’t say enough about this production. The music, the magic, the SNOW and ICE… Elsa is fabulous, but Anna is cracking us up! Amazing amazing production. You would never know it was the first night of previews! pic.twitter.com/FcrcAPkElR

Another consensus is that the show is amped up from the out-of-town tryout in Denver. You can read our review of that production.
Update: The woman behind me summed it up best. @FrozenBroadway is Denver on steroids. It’s so good guys. STILL.

Formal review will be released when the show debuts next month, but so far… so good. Frozen has its official opening Thursday, March 22, 2018. Tickets are on sale now. Visit FrozenTheMusical.com for more information.
Also, along with the previews comes the release of the music video for “Monster.” This new song, sung by Elsa was written specifically for the show. (Check out Alex’s review of the song as well.)
