The stage adaptation of Frozen, which opened on Broadway last year, is coming to the West End in 2020.
Disney’s stage show Frozen, directed by Michael Grandage, has been running on Broadway for a year and was nominated for three Tony awards.
It will now reopen Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane, a grade I listed Regency building that is undergoing a £45m renovation and restoration project.
The musical is based on the 2013 Disney movie of the same name – the most successful animated film ever released, with box office takings of more than £1.25bn,
The storyline of the musical is broadly the same as in the movie, but the stage production features 12 new songs.
Jennifer Lee, who wrote the book for the musical, told Encore Radio: “We’re so humbled by the continued support for Frozen – at its heart, a joyous story about love and sisterhood. We’re very excited to share what we have created on stage with London and to see it come to life in that gorgeous theatre.”
Casting for the production has not yet been announced. It will be directed by Michael Grandage and choreographed by Rob Ashford, with set and costume designs by Christopher Oram.
