It’s time! “Monster,” the first all-new song from Disney’s Broadway musical Frozen is here for fans to enjoy in this world-premiere music video, starring Caissie Levy (Elsa) and the Broadway company.
Frozen, a full-length stage work told in two acts, is the first and only incarnation of the tale that expands upon and deepens the story’s indelible plot and themes through new songs and story material from the film’s creators. In fact, this new stage production features more than twice as much music as the film, running over two hours.
As previously announced, “Monster” is one of four new songs that will be released on consecutive Fridays. Oscar® winners Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez have written, in total, 12 original songs for the stage musical. Today’s premiere honors Frozen’s first Broadway performance, which wowed audiences Thursday night.
Besides “Monster,” an Act Two solo for Elsa, other new songs for the show include “What Do You Know About Love?,” a new duet for Anna and Kristoff (Patti Murin and Jelani Alladin); “Dangerous to Dream,” a new interior monologue sung by Elsa; and “True Love,” a new Act Two solo for Anna. The songs were recently recorded by the Broadway cast, and they will be available at FrozenTheMusical.com and wherever music is streamed or sold.
In addition to Levy, Murin, and Alladin, the Frozen cast includes Greg Hildreth (Olaf), John Riddle (Hans), Robert Creighton (Weselton), Kevin Del Aguila (Oaken), Timothy Hughes (Pabbie), Andrew Pirozzi (Sven), Audrey Bennett (Young Anna), Mattea Conforti (Young Anna), Brooklyn Nelson (Young Elsa), Ayla Schwartz (Young Elsa), Alyssa Fox (Elsa Standby), Aisha Jackson(Anna Standby) and Adam Jepsen (Sven Alternate).
Frozen joined Disney Theatrical hits Aladdin and The Lion King on Broadway, starting performances at the St. James Theatre last night, February 22, 2018, and opening Thursday, March 22, 2018. Tickets are on sale now. Visit FrozenTheMusical.com for more information.
