The snow glowed white on Buell Theatre’s stage Thursday night as the Frozen musical adaptation made its world premiere in a week-long preview in Denver, Colorado before heading to Broadway in February.

Early reactions to the sold-out premiere are rolling out, and it sounds like Disney Theatrical Productions have built themselves another hit. We’ve compiled some of the Frozen on Broadway early buzz below.

We all went into Frozen fully expecting to hate the obvious contender for irritatingly cute and quirky sidekick, Olaf. Instead, he made us melt with emotions and we got waylaid by another annoying plush doll marketing ploy: the trolls.

But good news to all of you who loved Frozen except for that whole subplot with the trolls — Broadway’s musical adaptation of Frozen will cut them out altogether. Now that’s how you treat a fixer upper.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Broadway

We’ve known for a while that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the award-winning two-part play that continues J.K. Rowling’s beloved story of The Boy Who Lived, would be coming to Broadway, but it was unclear whether the production would recast any of its key actors when it came to American shores. Now we know that many of the actors from the original West End production will reprise their roles when the show moves to New York City early next year. Read on to learn the whole Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Broadway cast.

Spongebob Squarepants Musical

Despite any nostalgia ’90s kids may have for characters from Doug, Rugrats, or Hey Arnold!, it’s hard to argue that there’s any bigger or more popular character in the history of Nickelodeon than SpongeBob SquarePants. Don’t believe me? As of 2015, the property had generated a staggering $12 billion for Nickelodeon in merchandising alone. Whoa.

Now it looks like the character is going to be responsible for putting even more cash in the company’s pockets, because a SpongeBob SquarePants musical is heading to Broadway later this year – and the list of talent the producers wrangled up to write songs for this is one of the most random collections of musicians this side of “We Are The World.”

The ‘Frozen’ Broadway Show Is Taking Its Time

new Frozen short

We’re coming up on the one-year anniversary of Frozen in just a few weeks, which means we’re also coming up on the one-year anniversary of Frozen diehards demanding more Frozen in any form they can get it. Disney, of course, has been happy to oblige. The animated adventure has already spawned a singalong, a making-of TV special, an ice show, and a Once Upon a Time plotline.

But one of the most highly anticipated Frozen follow-ups is the Frozen Broadway show, which hasn’t come together quite yet. Though Thomas Schumacher, president and producer of the Disney Theatrical Group, says he’s meeting with directors, he also stresses that it’s better to be good than fast. Hit the jump for the latest on the Frozen Broadway show.

The behind-the-scenes ups and downs of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark are well-documented and could make a pretty insane story in its own right. But despite all its delays, injuries and money problems, it’s currently the most popular musical on Broadway, grossing $1,588,514 last week playing to full houses even in its huge 1,900 plus seat Foxwoods Theater in Times Square. Oddly enough, the financial success of the show happens as it simultaneously gets slammed both on College Humor and, more importantly, on the cover of The New Yorker.

Staying in the movie musical category, it seems that the Oscar-winning film Once will finally be coming to Broadway this fall. We reported as much back in 2008 so it’s excited to see it finally come to fruition.
