MY REVIEW OF FROZEN THE MUSICAL (Broadway, December 2019) ★★★
Frozen the Musical tells the story of a relationship between two sisters, Elsa and Anna (who also happen to be princesses). Elsa has magical powers which she can’t control and her parents keep her hidden away for fear of people finding out. But after their parents die unexpectedly and Elsa is next in line to the throne, she has no choice but to come out of hiding, accidentally causing the kingdom to become frozen in an eternal winter, which nearly kills Anna. Elsa runs away but Anna follows. Together they go on a journey in search of true love which is the only way to save the kingdom. Click here to keep reading my review.
