It’s now the third Friday since Frozen: The Broadway Musical started previews at the St. James Theater, which means the third single off the upcoming Original Cast Recording is now available to stream. This new song, “Dangerous to Dream,” is written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez and is sung by Elsa (Caissie Levy) and takes place right before and during the coronation. How does it compare to the previous two songs, “Monster” and “What Do You Know About Love?”
It’s not the power ballad that “Monster” is, although it does have it’s moments. And it never gets anywhere near the fun and uptempo spectacle that is “What Do You Know About Love?”. If I had to compare it to anything, it’s like the “Conceal, don’t feel” refrain of “Let It Go” that gets peppered throughout the rest of the songs from the animated feature, but expanded to 5-minutes.
It has hymnal elements and allows Caissie Levy to showcase her beautiful soft voice, since “Monster” is an almost constant belt (and boy, what a belt!). As they did with the last single, a lyric video is now available through Disney on Broadway’s YouTube Channel.
On your commute over the next week, I recommend the following playlist to keep your frozen heart’s from thawing out until the fourth single debuts. This pairs the songs from the film with the songs from the show (so far) in the order they take place in the Broadway version.
- “Frozen Heart”
- “Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?”
- “For the First Time in Forever”
- “Dangerous to Dream”
- “Love is an Open Door”
- “Reindeer(s) Are Better Than People”
- “What Do You Know About Love?”
- “In Summer”
- “Let It Go”
- “For the First Time In Forever (Reprise)”
- “Fixer Upper”
Next week, we will get the final single, “True Love,” on March 16th. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait. What’s your favorite song from the show so far? Leave a comment to let us know.
