Disney musical Frozen has confirmed a London run, opening at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in the autumn of 2020.

Directed by Michael Grandage, the musical – currently running on Broadway – will reopen the theatre following a £45 million refurbishment.

The show is written by Jennifer Lee, with music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.

It is designed by Christopher Oram, with lighting by Natasha Katz, sound by Peter Hylenski, video by Finn Ross, and puppets by Michael Curry. Musical supervision is by Stephen Oremus.

Grandage said: “Bringing Frozen to the stage has been a gloriously happy journey. We’re all looking forward to getting back in the room together as a creative team, to build our London company and bring Frozen to the West End.”

The musical is produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, whose president, Thomas Schumacher, said: “As Frozen celebrates its first year on Broadway, we’re thrilled to share the London plans for the show.”

He added: “Michael Grandage has created a production that is as full of heart and joy as it is spectacle. It will be an honour to reopen Andrew Lloyd Webber’s gorgeously refurbished Theatre Royal Drury Lane, one of the crown jewels of London’s West End.”
