“Frozen” Is Melting Hearts

Reviewing the stage version, which is in Denver, Variety gushes: ‘The musical wows adults as much as kids with a brilliant spectacle — as poignant as it is jaw-dropping — that should ensure the production a hearty run in New York, where the show begins Broadway previews in February.’ The New York Times is more measured: ‘Already much is right: The supporting cast is charming, the singing spectacular, the simpler effects — including the crystal curtain for Elsa’s palace and the part-puppet, part-human reindeer and snowman — successful. But, like “Wicked” before it, “Frozen” is going to have to figure how to make the dark character less of a bore.’
