Get Your First Look At The Frozen On Broadway Cast In Costume

Caissie Levy and Patti Murin are playing sisters Elsa and Anna with Jelani Alladin as Kristoff and John Riddle as Hans.

In fact, we may just need to hop on a flight to Denver to catch the pre-Broadway performances taking place at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts RIGHT. But before it gets there, the show undergoes a test run in Denver. For now, whet your Frozen appetite with EW's official first look at the principal foursome who will bring the characters from Disney's Oscar-winning film to life on Broadway.

New York Times theater reporter Michael Paulson wrote about what it takes to transform this Disney re-imagination of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale "The Snow Queen" into a large-scale stage production.

Stitch Kingdom had the most comprehensive review of the Frozen musical when it opened in Denver on August 17.

While Elsa and Anna command the most attention, the show is doing its best to bring Hans and Kristoff alive as well in terms of their costumes.

"I'm not particularly interested in slavishly replicating a movie onstage, because it won't challenge anybody", he said.

'But the thing we can do most of all is have real, live, breathing, beating hearts in front of people in the dark'.

But Frozen mania doesn't stop with just the stage production. The movie's screenwriter Jennifer Lee has been on board throughout development, and they promise a few surprises in seeing Frozen on the stage. Everything - from the colors and textures right down to the details (those crowns!) - are absolutely flawless, making it clear that costume designer Christopher Oram possesses some special powers of his own.

The snowman, the reindeer, the icy palace materializing out of frosty air - you'll have to conjure up a ticket before you can lay eyes on those bits of stage magic. "The thing is, they're wearing big, heavy, warm clothes, and the one thing it is not on stage is freezing cold". That's because the first picture from the upcoming Broadway adaptation of Frozen (with actors in costume!) has been released. "That's dramatic irony for you".
