Big news theatre fans. Disney's Frozen has found it's new director. According to Michael Riedel of the New York Post, the show is now being helmed by Tony Award winning director Michael Grandage (Red, Evita).
He replaces the previously announced Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher, Rocky), who was let go over the Summer. The show, which is based on the award winning film is set to make it's Broadway debut at the St. James Theatre in 2018.
Now while I may not be the biggest Disney fan in the world, I have no doubt that Frozen will do very well at the box office. Here's hoping the show is more along the lines of The Lion King as opposed to The Little Mermaid or Tarzan. Stay tuned to this blog for future updates about the show. Until next time theatre fans.
