Da Dailymail:

New songs warm up Frozen for Broadway

The team that will turn Frozen into a stage musical have been warming up a few ideas about getting it into a theatre by 2017.

Kristen Anderson-Lopez and her husband (and song-writing partner) Robert Lopez, who wrote the hit Let It Go (among others), met Jennifer Lee, the film’s writer and co-director; Thomas Schumacher, who heads Disney Theatricals; and Alex Timbers, who directed the recent National Theatre and New York Public Theatre hit show Here Lies Love.

Timbers, who also directed Peter And The Starcatcher for Disney, spent several days having various sessions with the Frozen creative team. Lee is writing the show’s book, working closely with the Lopez duo to shape how the animated film, which has become a phenomenal global hit, can be adapted for the stage.

The Lopezes have already written a couple of new songs for the show. The expectation is that if the right theatre — and, presumably, the right climate — can be found, then Frozen could be up, ready and skating into a Broadway theatre the year after next.

The film featured the voice of Idina Menzel as ice Queen Elsa, but she won’t be in the stage production.


Da TheaterMania:

Is a Frozen Musical Only Two Years Away From Broadway?

A director is in place and the Oscar-winning songwriting team is crafting a score.

The hotly anticipated stage version of the Disney animated feature film Frozen is aiming for a 2017 debut, London's Daily Mail reports.

Alex Timbers, the Tony-nominated director behind Here Lies Love, Rocky, and Peter and the Starcatcher, has been taking meetings with the creative team and is expected to helm the production. Jennifer Lee, who penned the screenplay of the 2013 film, is expected to write the book, with the film's Oscar- and Grammy-winning songwriters, Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, crafting a full score to go along with movie tunes like "Let It Go."

Frozen, which tells the story of a princess who sets off to find her estranged sister, won 2014 Oscars for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song. It grossed over $1.3 billion in worldwide box office revenue. The cast of the film is led by Tony Award winner Idina Menzel as Elsa and Kristen Bell as Anna, alongside Santino Fontana, Jonathan Groff, and Josh Gad.

Complete timeline, casting, and theater information have not been officially announced. It is expected that the production will make its debut on Broadway.

UPDATE, February 13: Disney Theatricals President and Producer Thomas Schumacher has released the following statement regarding the Frozen musical: "As has already been announced, Disney Theatrical is working on a stage adaptation of the animated film Frozen. It will come as no surprise that the EGOT-winning Broadway veteran Robert Lopez and the Oscar and Grammy winning Kristen Anderson-Lopez, who wrote the indelible songs for the film, will be working on the show and that Oscar winner Jennifer Lee, co-director and screenwriter of the film, will be working on the book of the stage version. No other staffing or dates have been announced."

We Can't Hold It Back Anymore! Betsy Wolfe Tapped to Play Elsa in Frozen; Listen to Her 'Let It Go'

It looks like she’s the queen! Broadway alum Betsy Wolfe will take on the mammoth power anthem “Let It Go” as Elsa in the musical adaptation of Frozen, according to reports from the New York Post. The Disney musical, directed by Alex Timbers, is set to hit the Great White Way in spring 2018 and is eyeing a bow at the St. James Theatre, the current home of Something Rotten!.

The show, featuring the beloved tunes (and some new ones) by married songwriting duo Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez and a book by screenwriter Jennifer Lee, will first play an August 2017 out-of-town tryout in Denver, Colorado.

Frozen marks a reunion for Wolfe and the creative team: In 2015, she starred in the world premiere production of Up Here at San Diego’s La Jolla Playhouse. The musical was also directed by Timbers and featured a score by the Lopezes.

Wolfe made her Broadway debut in 110 in the Shade and has gone on to tread the boards in Everyday Rapture, The Mystery of Edwin Drood and Bullets Over Broadway. She also starred in the off-Broadway revival of The Last Five Years and in Merrily We Roll Along at City Center Encores!.

Check out Wolfe spiraling her soul in frozen fractals all around Carnegie Hall (with Bobby Lopez on the piano) below!

* Il libretto del musical è scritto dalla regista del film, Jennifer Lee.

Dal sito Playbill:

Exclusive: Frozen Songwriters Announce Stage Musical Will Have Over 20 Songs

Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez reveal they are developing a lot of new music for the forthcoming stage adaptation.

Frozen songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez were in attendance at the April 25 Actors Fund gala, where they spoke to Playbill exclusively about development on the upcoming stage adaptation of Disney’s hit animated film musical .

The songwriting duo, who are preparing to head into a developmental workshop for the show next week, revealed that the musical is set to feature a large number of new songs. “The movie only has seven-and-a-half songs, and we’ve written about 23...As many songs that are in the movie, we've doubled it, and then there are reprises,” said Anderson-Lopez. “There’s a lot of new material – using some of the motifs that you already know from the movie – but going much deeper into all of the characters.”

Lopez added that during development, the focus will be on adapting iconic moments from the movie so that they have the same impact on the stage. “The story is still the same,” said Lopez. “We just needed to adapt the same story. We can’t really do huge, big action sequences on stage; you can’t really do close-ups on stage, so all of those moments that are so iconic from the film need to transform and become musical theatre moments onstage. That’s the focus of our work.”

“Every time Elsa has a giant close-up and you learn so much story through her eyes, it became a song,” added Anderson-Lopez.

“We have a very short time to develop this and make it what it is,” she continued. “It’s the first time we’ve ever written it at the same time that it’s being designed, so there’s a lot of talk, a lot of communication.”

The out-of-town premiere will play Denver Center's Buell Theatre in summer 2017 prior to a spring 2018 Broadway arrival. The production reunites Lopez and Anderson-Lopez with original screenwriter and co-director Jennifer Lee, who is writing the musical’s book.

It was recently reported that the role of Elsa had been cast in the musical, but a spokesperson for Disney said April 26 that no roles have yet been officially cast.

The production will be directed by Alex Timbers ( Here Lies Love, Peter and the Starcatcher) and choreographed by Tony winner Peter Darling ( Billy Elliot).

Frozen is being produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, under the direction of Thomas Schumacher. It's the latest in a series of stage adaptations of Disney animated films that has included Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Tarzan, The Little Mermaid and Aladdin.

Dal sito Deadline:

‘Frozen’ Musical Switches Gears With Director & Choreographer Change

Alex Timbers has exited as director of Frozen, the in-the-works musical based on the wildly successful Disney animated movie. The move comes after an Actors Equity casting notice posted yesterday for a fall development lab for the project in New York that listed Timbers as director. It also listed Christopher Gattelli as choreographer, confirming another switch that had been rumored meaning original Billy Elliot choreographer Peter Darling is also out.

No new director has been named.

Frozen has long planned a spring 2018 Broadway bow, with a pre-Main Stem run at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts beginning in summer 2017.

“Making the tough calls when creating a new Broadway musical is never easy, but this was especially painful,” said Thomas Schumacher, President of Disney Theatrical Productions, in a statement released to the press today. “Alex Timbers is one of the most exciting and innovative theatre directors I know, and we’ve proudly worked with him from my support of the early development of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson through our work together on Peter And The Starcatcher. Though we have chosen to go in another direction with this role, we are committed to seeing Frozen’s tremendous theatrical potential brought to life onstage.”

Timbers and Disney Theatricals previously teamed on Peter And The Starcatcher, which earned him a Tony nomination in 2012. His most recent credit is the musical Rocky.

Variety reported the news of Timbers’ exit first this morning.

News:

* Il coreografo di Newsies si sta occupando di coreografare il musical di Frozen.

Ancora un articolo sul licenziamento di Tombers. Dal sito NYTimes:

Disney Dismisses Alex Timbers as Director of ‘Frozen’ Musical

That’s cold! Disney has dismissed the director of its Broadway-bound “Frozen” musical.

The company said Thursday that it was seeking a replacement for the director, Alex Timbers, a much-praised artist whose previous collaboration with Disney, as one of two directors of “Peter and the Starcatcher,” brought him a nomination for a Tony Award.

Disney issued a brief statement that did not explain the change. “Disney Theatrical Productions and director Alex Timbers have parted ways on the upcoming Broadway musical ‘Frozen’,” the company said. “Announcement of a new director for the project will be made in the near future.”

The president of Disney Theatrical, Thomas Schumacher, offered a few more details in a separate statement. “Making the tough calls when creating a new Broadway musical is never easy, but this was especially painful,” he said.

“Alex Timbers is one of the most exciting and innovative theater directors I know, and we’ve proudly worked with him from my support of the early development of ‘Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson’ through our work together on ‘Peter and the Starcatcher’,” Mr. Schumacher added. “Though we have chosen to go in another direction with this role, we are committed to seeing ‘Frozen’s’ tremendous theatrical potential brought to life onstage.”

The change in directors, although noteworthy given the prominence of this project, is not without precedent. Rob Marshall voluntarily left “Hairspray” while it was in development, and Jason Moore left “The Book of Mormon,” under less happy circumstances, while that show was in development. Disney previously changed directors between pre-Broadway productions of the musical “Aida.”

A Disney spokesman said it was not clear what impact, if any, the “Frozen” change would have on that show’s developmental timeline. The company previously said it intended to mount a production of the musical beginning next August at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, and to bring it to Broadway in the spring of 2018.

The show is to feature music and lyrics by the same couple who collaborated on songs for the hit 2013 animated film, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, and a book by Jennifer Lee, who was the film’s screenwriter and co-director.

Betsy Wolfe, Patti Murin & Okieriete Onaodowan Led Lab of Broadway-Bound Frozen

We can’t hold it back anymore—we have more news about the Broadway-bound Frozen stage adaptation. Betsy Wolfe (Bullets Over Broadway), Patti Murin (Lysistrata Jones) and Okieriete Onaodowan (Hamilton) recently played Elsa, Anna and Kristoff, respectively, in a lab of the Disney tuner.

According to the New York Post, casting is not yet confirmed for later incarnations of the show, which as previously reported will make its world premiere at the Buell Theatre in the Denver Center for the Performing Arts in August 2017. Directed by Alex Timbers, the production is scheduled to hit Broadway in Spring 2018. The Post writes that Frozen has booked the St. James Theatre.

The Disney musical, featuring the beloved tunes (and some new ones) by married songwriting duo Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez and a book by screenwriter Jennifer Lee, will have choreography by Peter Darling.

The production has an all-star design team lined up: set and costume designer Bob Crowley, lighting designer Natasha Katz and sound designer Peter Hylenski. Stephen Oremus will serve as music supervisor.

Frozen follows two royal sisters, Elsa and Anna, whose relationship is put to the test when Elsa’s magical ice powers are unleashed during a power anthem that you’re still singing under your breath. Also in the mix are a strapping iceman, his reindeer, a fast-talking snowman and a too-good-to-be-true prince. We probably didn't need to explain that to you.

The film won Oscars in 2013 for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song (for “Let It Go”) and featured the vocal talents of several Broadway favorites, including Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad, Santino Fontana and Kristen Bell.


Pare che Kristoff sia nero nell'adattamento a musical a Broadway...

Dal sito Hollywood Reporter:

Disney Replaces Director of Broadway-Bound 'Frozen' Musical

Tony winner Michael Grandage reportedly will now stage the eagerly anticipated project, which despite the creative shakeup remains on track to bow in August 2017.

Looks like Disney's Frozen has a new director in place.

Following the exit early last month of the project's original director, Alex Timbers, sources with knowledge of the production say lauded Brit director Michael Grandage has now signed on to stage the Broadway-bound musical, bringing his regular design collaborator, Christopher Oram, as part of the package.

Grandage won the Tony Award for best direction of a play in 2010 for John Logan's Red, and was nominated two other times, for Frost/Nixon in 2007 and for The Cripple of Inishmaan in 2014.

His experience directing musicals on Broadway has been limited to the 2012 revival of Evita, with Elena Roger and Ricky Martin. However, Grandage has staged both musicals and opera in London, notably Grand Hotel in 2004, during his tenure as artistic director of the Donmar Warehouse; and a hit West End revival of Guys and Dolls the following year, with Ewan McGregor, Jane Krakowski and Douglas Hodge. Both those shows won Olivier Awards for outstanding musical production.

After making his film directing debut this year with the period drama Genius, which starred Colin Firth, Jude Law and Nicole Kidman, Grandage also is attached to direct a screen remake of Guys and Dolls for Fox.

Disney has not confirmed Grandage's hire and declined to comment on this story, but if the deal goes through, the Frozen gig would put him into partnership with the studio's theatrical division for the first time on a massive project that is widely expected to be another stage juggernaut for the company. The show is scheduled to join stablemates The Lion King and Aladdin on Broadway in spring 2018. Released in 2013, the film version of Frozen is the top-grossing animated feature of all time, with worldwide box office of close to $1.3 billion.

Prior to Broadway, the Frozen musical will play a tryout engagement at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, beginning performances in Aug. 2017. That timeline remains in place, despite the switch in directors after it became clear that Timbers' vision for the show was not what Disney had in mind.

A change in the director and key creatives of a major Broadway musical is not uncommon; Finding Neverland opened in New York in 2015 with an entirely different creative team from the original U.K. production, while Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will open next April with director Jack O'Brien stepping in for Sam Mendes, who staged the show in London.

The stage adaptation of Frozen features music and lyrics by the creators of the film score, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, and a book by Jennifer Lee, who wrote and co-directed the movie. Taking the reins from previously announced designer Bob Crowley under the brewing deal, two-time Tony winner Oram would design sets and costumes for the show. Lighting is by prolific designer Natasha Katz, whose six Tonys include one for Disney's Aida, while as previously announced, Christopher Gattelli, a Tony winner for Disney's Newsies, is now on board as choreographer.

Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen, Frozen follows a princess named Anna on her journey across an icy landscape to find her estranged sister Elsa, whose dark powers have locked the kingdom in eternal winter. The movie also launched a chart-topping hit with the Oscar-winning song, "Let It Go." The show will feature that number as well as others from the movie and new songs by the husband-and-wife composing team.

It's an open secret on Broadway that Frozen will take up residence at the St. James Theatre, which is undergoing backstage renovations to accommodate the large-scale production's sets. However, like news of Grandage's involvement, which first appeared in The New York Post, plans for the Broadway venue have not been confirmed by Disney. Casting on the show also remains to be announced.

Disney’s Frozen Names Tony-Winning Director and a Broadway Theatre

Tony Award-winning director Michael Grandage and Tony-winning scenic designer Christopher Oram have joined the show’s creative team.

Award-winning director Michael Grandage and scenic designer Christopher Oram—collaborators on the Tony-winning drama Red—have joined the creative team of Disney’s next Broadway musical, Frozen.

Disney confirmed the news September 27. The announcement comes days after the New York Post reported that the pair were in final negotiations.

Disney also revealed that Frozen will arrive at Broadway’s St. James Theatre in spring 2018. The back wall of the theatre is being expanded in order to house the technically advanced production. The theatre’s current resident, Something Rotten!, will play its final performance January 1, 2017.

In August, Disney announced that it was parting ways with original Frozen director Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher, Moulin Rouge!). Added to the creative team was Christopher Gattelli, the Tony-winning choreographer of Disney’s Newsies.

Previous reports indicated that Billy Elliot director Stephen Daldry (who is also tapped to direct the film adaptation of Wicked) was in talks to take up the reins on Frozen.

The Post report stated that Daldry opted to pursue other projects, while original Frozen scenic designer Bob Crowley departed the production amicably.

Frozen will premiere at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts in August 2017 prior to its Broadway
arrival.

Casting and detailed Broadway dates are yet to be announced.

Dal sito ETonline, un'intervista a Kristen Anderson Lopez:

Frozen grossed over a billion dollars worldwide at the box office. “Let It Go,” sung in the film by Idina Menzel, sold 10.9 million copies in 2014, peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100, and earned Robert EGOT status.

Now, the animated film about Elsa and her younger sister, Anna, is being adapted for Broadway, first opening for a limited run in Denver in 2017 before heading to the St. James Theatre in New York City in the spring of 2018.

While the script is quite similar to the film, Lopez and her husband had to expand the eight songs heard on the soundtrack to 23 for the stage in nine months. “You’re at the bottom of a giant mountain that you need to climb, and that’s where we were September of 2015,” she says of having to turn those core songs into a musical by May of this year. “We said, we know we have something to say and let’s just dig deeper.”

Beyond the movie, the dresses, the backpacks and the endless assortment of promotional items that have made Frozen a billion-dollar brand, Lopez says the story “comes from a very personal, emotional place of what happens when a family is dealing with secrecy and shame and how you heal that.” As a result, they were able to go deeper with Anna’s character, in particular, and build a real romance between her and Kristoff.

And given that "Frozen," that new stage musical which is based on Walt Disney Animation Studios' Academy Award-winning film, begins its Pre-Broadway engagement at Denver's Buell Theatre on August 17th AND that a newly configured production of "The Lion King" (which will be put together by Julie Taymor & this show's Tony-winning design team and take advantage of advances in stage technologies that have been made since this show first bowed on Broadway back in November of 1997) ... It's not like Hinds & Co. will run out of material for the Official Disney on Broadway Podcast anytime soon.

‘Frozen’ Musical Sets Casting, New Choreographer on Way to Broadway

Disney Theatrical Prods. has lined up the principal casting for its Broadway-bound musical adaptation of “Frozen,” with Caissie Levy and Patti Murin on board to play the sisters at the center of the story.

Levy (“Ghost,” “Les Miserables,” “Hair”) plays Elsa, the character who sings the animated film’s best-known tune, “Let It Go,” with Murin (“Lysistrata Jones,” “Xanadu”) on board for Anna. In the film, the characters were voiced by Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell, respectively.

Also on the cast list are Jelani Alladin as Kristoff, Greg Hildreth (“Peter and the Starcatcher”) as the snowman Olaf, John Riddle as Hans and Robert Creighton as the duke of Weselton.

Meanwhile, the production has gained a new choreographer, with Rob Ashford (“Evita,” “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”) jumping into a post that was initially filled by Peter Darling and then by Christopher Gattelli. The changeover is a symptom of the switch in creative teams precipitated when Alex Timbers, who was originally tapped to direct, exited the production and was replaced by Michael Grandage.

The cast assembled for “Frozen” represents a solid list of names that will be recognized by people in the theater industry, but won’t have much recognition among general audiences. With a title like Disney’s “Frozen,” already a huge family-audience draw thanks to mega-successful animated feature from 2013, the brand is the star attraction.

“Frozen” premieres in Denver in an out-of-town engagement set for Aug. 17-Oct. 1, prior to a Broadway run that opens in spring 2018 at the St. James Theater.


Ecco il cast:

Caissie Levy - Elsa

Patti Murin - Anna

Jelani Alladin - Kristoff

Greg Hildreth - Olaf

John Riddle - Hans

Robert Creighton - Duke of Weselton

NB: Kristoff sarà nero. Come cosa è buona, un primo eroe nero in una fiaba. Vedremo come motiveranno la cosa nel musical dato che è ambientato in Norvegia, d'accordo è una fiaba ed è di fantasia, ma sempre nel Nord è ambientato... poi magari non diranno niente, vedremo

‘Frozen’ Musical Sets Casting, New Choreographer on Way to Broadway

Disney Theatrical Prods. has lined up the principal casting for its Broadway-bound musical adaptation of “Frozen,” with Caissie Levy and Patti Murin on board to play the sisters at the center of the story.

Levy (“Ghost,” “Les Miserables,” “Hair”) plays Elsa, the character who sings the animated film’s best-known tune, “Let It Go,” with Murin (“Lysistrata Jones,” “Xanadu”) on board for Anna. In the film, the characters were voiced by Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell, respectively.

Also on the cast list are Jelani Alladin as Kristoff, Greg Hildreth (“Peter and the Starcatcher”) as the snowman Olaf, John Riddle as Hans and Robert Creighton as the duke of Weselton.

Meanwhile, the production has gained a new choreographer, with Rob Ashford (“Evita,” “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”) jumping into a post that was initially filled by Peter Darling and then by Christopher Gattelli. The changeover is a symptom of the switch in creative teams precipitated when Alex Timbers, who was originally tapped to direct, exited the production and was replaced by Michael Grandage.

The cast assembled for “Frozen” represents a solid list of names that will be recognized by people in the theater industry, but won’t have much recognition among general audiences. With a title like Disney’s “Frozen,” already a huge family-audience draw thanks to mega-successful animated feature from 2013, the brand is the star attraction.

“Frozen” premieres in Denver in an out-of-town engagement set for Aug. 17-Oct. 1, prior to a Broadway run that opens in spring 2018 at the St. James Theater.


Ecco il cast:

Caissie Levy - Elsa

Patti Murin - Anna

Jelani Alladin - Kristoff

Greg Hildreth - Olaf

John Riddle - Hans

Robert Creighton - Duke of Weselton

NB: Kristoff sarà nero. Come cosa è buona, un primo eroe nero in una fiaba. Vedremo come motiveranno la cosa nel musical dato che è ambientato in Norvegia, d'accordo è una fiaba ed è di fantasia, ma sempre nel Nord è ambientato... poi magari non diranno niente, vedremo.

Solitamente a teatro non danno molta importanza all'etnia , ovviamente in base al musical , ma in questo caso non spiegheranno nulla e no non mi piace l'idea.

Il blind casting è pratica diffusa nel mondo del teatro statunitense e londinese di oggi, e sinceramente come pratica mi piace molto. Non vedo perché dovrebbero motivare questa scelta di un Kristoff nero se non semplicemente col talento dell'attore. wink.gif

Anche a me non piace per niente.
L'ambientazione del film e' nordeuropea e il personaaggio ha un aspetto ben distinto, non capisco perche' scegliere un attore di colore.
Comunque... non amo neanche troppo le attrice per Anna e Elsa.

Quindi Lin Manuel Miranda ha scelto pessimamente il suo cast per "Hamilton" visto che ha badato più al talento che alla verità storica... rolleyes.gif

Non ho idea di cosa tu stia parlando. Comunque se fosse stato nero anche nel film originale non ci sarebbe stato problema, ma siccome non lo e', questa scleta di casting a me non piace. Se a te invece piace, buon per te. Non mi pare una cosa grave.
