Since the moment Disney Theatrical Productions announced that Frozen is coming to Broadway, we’ve been imagining how the blockbuster animated feature will translate to the stage. Last night, fans in the mile-high city attended the first performance of Frozen’s out-of-town tryout at the Buell Theatre in the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, but this morning Disney Theatrical gave the rest of us another peek into what’s to come.
This just-released video goes behind the scenes of the first photo shoot of Frozen’s stars, Caissie Levy (Elsa) and Patti Murin (Anna), along with Jelani Alladin (Kristoff) and John Riddle (Hans) wearing their costumes designed by two-time Tony® and Olivier Award-winning scenic and costume designer Christopher Oram. From the print on Anna’s dress and Elsa’s violet cape to Kristoff’s fur-trimmed boots and the royal-ish brocade on Hans’ waistcoat, the attention to detail brings all of our Frozen-fashion dreams to life. Renowned photographer Andrew Eccles photographed the actors backstage at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
Frozen continues at Denver’s Buell Theatre through October 1, 2017, before it begins performances at Broadway’s St. James Theatre on Thursday, February 22, 2018, and opens in mid-March 2018.
