Last year, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Disney FROZEN the Broadway Musical had its final curtain call. In May 2020, Disney confirmed that Frozen would not be returning once Broadway theaters reopened.
Although the popular musical may not be returning to the Great White Way when New York City theaters begin reopening in September, there is some good news for Frozen fans! The North American touring production of Disney FROZEN the Broadway Musical is back in rehearsals and preparing to hit the road to come to a city near you.
The show’s official Instagram account confirmed the details yesterday, August 17, 2021:

The official description of the original film — which is what the Broadway touring production is based on — reads:
Fearless optimist Anna teams up with rugged mountain man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven in an epic journey to find Anna’s sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, will the trio find Elsa in time to save Arendelle?
