The West-End musical Frozen has confirmed that it will close this coming September after three years at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
With music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, book by Jennifer Lee, and directed by Michael Grandage, Frozen made its grand entrance to Theatre Royal Drury Lane in August 2021. It received 7 WhatsOnStage Awards – the most of any production – and 4 Olivier Award nominations, including Best New Musical. The sets and costumes by Christopher Oram were conceived on an epic scale, boasting 154 costumes, including the ice dress adorned with over 10,000 crystals. The ice palace set itself sparkles with over 50,000 crystals, and the colossal ice bridge, stretching 65 feet long and towering nearly 10 feet high, transforms the Drury Lane stage into a breathtaking winter wonderland.
Seen by over 2.8 million people, it’s Disney Theatrical Group’s 7th longest-running production, and the curtain will fall for the last time on Sunday 8th September 2024.
Tickets are still available for its final summer run here.
Director Michael Grandage said today, “It has been a joy to be part of the Frozen journey in London. Working with the team at Disney, the brilliant creative team, and the incredible cast have made this one of my happiest theatre experiences.
“Frozen opened in the UK on the heels of the pandemic, and it was glorious to welcome back audiences, many of whom were coming to the theatre for the first time. To introduce so many to the power of theatre and hopefully cultivate a life-long love for it, has been an immense privilege.”
Samantha Barks, who originated the role of Elsa in the West End, will return to the show on the 7th of February, replacing Jenna Lee-James.
