Winter is coming and it's coming in 2018. That is right, Frozen the Musical is coming to Broadway in just two short years. That means just as you are finally to get “Let it Go,” out of your head, you going to get have it stuck right back in skull again. The Disney musical will feature the same writing team of husband and wife Robert Lopez (E.G.O.T winner, Book of Mormon, Avenue Q) and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (Disney’s Finding Nemo the Musical) providing the music and Jennifer Lee penning the book.

Early last year, Disney theatrical Production president and producer Thomas Schumacher released a statement to the press about the personnel involved in the upcoming Broadway show (via The Hollywood Reporter):

“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."

According to Billborad Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher) will be staging the show with Peter Darling (Billy Elliot).
