Opening night of Broadway's Frozen: (The Musical) will be here in just six short months (much sooner than the anticipated November 2019 release date for Frozen 2!), but to hold us over, the wonderful folks over at Disney on Broadway have given us our first peek at the cast in full costume with newly unveiled footage that has us practically giddy with excitement.

Do you want to see Frozen on Broadway? The show is adapted from the 2013 movie musical by the same name.

Patti Murin, Caissie Levy, Jelani Alladin, and John Riddle will star in the blockbuster new stage adaptation as Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and Hans respectively.

The costume and looks for Anna, Elsa, Han and Kristoff from Frozen The Musical were released.

That attention to detail is one of the hallmarks of the production, according to director Michael Grandage, who spoke to EW about all the painstaking work the creative team put into taking "Frozen" from film to the stage. "I'm not particularly interested in slavishly replicating a movie onstage, because it won't challenge anybody. We're never going to have as many Swarovski crystals as Aladdin, and we've just got to live with that". There's going to be brand new songs debuting in the stage version - 14 (!) to be exact - and they're coming from the same crew that penned the film's music.

Disney has now finally give us our first glimpse of its new stars as the iconic roles. We've got a bigger narrative arc.

'But the thing we can do most of all is have real, live, breathing, beating hearts in front of people in the dark'. Tony victor Michael Grandage (Red) directs, with choreography by Tony victor Rob Ashford (Thoroughly Modern Millie).

Ultimately, based on a recent tabulation before previews began in Denver, Oram's department had constructed a whopping 363 costumes based on 172 individual designs. "That's fine by me", he laughs. Unless Elsa has something to say about it.
