What’s playing at the St. James Theatre?
Based on the wildly popular 2013 Disney film, Frozen opened at the St. James Theatre in March 2018. It is a musical that explores the relationship between two sisters as one tries to control her power to freeze objects and people.
Frozen is the story of how older sister Elsa, who will eventually become queen, struggles to control her powers after accidentally freezing her sister, Anna, when they were children. After their parents disappear at sea, Elsa stays away from Anna and the two essentially grow up without a sibling. When Elsa comes of age to become queen, she throws a party, which thrills Anna, who meets a prince she wants to marry. Upset, Elsa loses control of her powers, creates an endless winter in Arendelle and flees to the mountains.
Anna tracks her down, and Elsa mistakenly freezes Anna’s heart. Elsa must return to Arendelle to save Anna, as only her true love can save her sister.
The show’s music and lyrics are by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, and the book is by Jennifer Lee. Frozen was nominated for three Tony Awards and won a Drama Desk Award in 2018 for Outstanding Puppet Design.
The show received mediocre reviews, but audiences can’t help but be impressed by the technology, creativity of the puppets and puppeteers, and roused by the musical numbers.
In its review, the New York Times found Frozen to be “unusually coherent for a Disney musical,” and called it “beautiful to look at.”

Frozen runs 2 hours, 30 minutes and has one intermission. The show is recommended for those eight and older.
