Today we get an early look, filmed in NY during summer rehearsals, at the cast and crew of "Frozen" interacting as they plan for their trip to Denver to work out the kinks. Schumacher knew it was a prime property for Disney Theatrical Productions in very early days.

The show premieres in a tryout engagement at the Buell Theater in the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, running August 17 through October 1, ahead of its Broadway bow in spring 2018 at the St. James Theatre. In fact, there will be so much music, the Broadway play will feature twice the amount of songs as the animated movie as the story extends beyond the movie's boundaries.
