Enchanting, Entertaining, Great staging, Fun, Solid

See it if You don’t like a well staged and entertains show. Liking the movie will help but not necessary. Well exceeded my low expectations.

Don't see it if You don’t like Disney or Frozen. Some of the newer songs were unmemorable.

Delightful, Funny, Great staging, Fluffy, Indulgent

See it if you're a fan of the film, you've heard music from the show & liked it, you're curious about how the show would be staged. like Disney shows

Don't see it if you're not a fan of Disney shows, don't like shows that are too sleek & mechanical, didn't like the film, all this sappiness is too much

Also There are, however, some isolated moments of ingenuity in the show, su... Read more Read less

Enchanting, Great singing, Clever, Great staging, Masterful

See it if Successful herculean task of transfer of film to stage.Female-empowerment-driven Disney triumph w/ bombast.Reindeer a scene-stealer.Chilling

Don't see it if A Disney blockbuster doesn't make it bad. Let it go.

Sweet, Funny, Great writing, Charming, Fluffy

See it if you want to see a show for children but that is also charming and fun and refreshing for adults as well.

Don't see it if you're looking for something a little more meaty that leaves you thinking.

Enchanting, Great singing, Great staging, Entertaining, Fun

See it if Great effects. Nice story between about two sisters. Show is great that adults could enjoy it as much as kids can.

Don't see it if You have to like musicals. And you know there's going to be some kids in the audience

Also One thing I have to say I thought I would have alot of kids near me. B... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Great singing, Banal, Disappointing, Fluffy

See it if You want to check another Disney musical off your list, even if this is their weakest yet (by far).

Don't see it if You’ll be bothered by children chatting away and kicking your seat throughout the show. Just stay away if you can’t handle that.

Delightful, Entertaining, Great staging, Funny, Enchanting

See it if you liked the movie and enjoy beautiful and exciting staging .Lovely story and good singing. Be sure to bring the kids!

Don't see it if you didn't like the movie, don't like Disney shows or you prefer sophisticated musicals.

Also Better to sit upstairs to get full effect of the staging and lighting ... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Great singing

See it if You love great songs, beautiful sets (where the "ice" comes all over the stage) and an easy-to-follow story-line.

Don't see it if You hate the song "Let it Go"; you're not interested in a woman who turns everything to ice (if she gets mad) due to her magical powers..

Confusing, Entertaining, Great singing, Overrated, Indulgent

See it if A musical for loyal Disney fans. You love twisted fairytale style shows. You saw the movie and want to compare.

Don't see it if You are looking for a story that follows a traditional style. This seems to be a show somewhere between one that appeals to kids and adults.

Slow, Fluffy, Great staging, Great singing, Delightful

See it if You like Disney shows and thinking like a child. Princess Anna makes it fun as do the reindeer and the snowman. I did not see the movie.

Don't see it if You dislike Disney shows with stuffed animated characters. You do not like sitting around many children crunching on candy.

Also Aladdin and Lion King are much more polished and entertaining.

Not up to disney's standards. bland.

See it if You have a little kid wh is not discerning and loved the movie.

Don't see it if You don't have a little kid that you have to take.

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if you are looking for something light and fun. It's about what you expect, but it is very well done. Loads of talent on display.

Don't see it if you don't like lightweight musicals. Fun for families or teens. I'm an old lady, and I liked it. Worth seeing.

Delightful, Fluffy, Great staging, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy a kids oriented show that is well done

Don't see it if You prefer more adult entertainment

Enchanting, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You are a fan of the movie and/or the music and enjoy lightharted touching musicals.

Don't see it if You expect the play to be just like the movie, are not a fan of Frozen or if you prefer more substantial material.

No ambition, Fluffy, Enchanting, Overrated

See it if Perfect for families and fans of the movie but don't go in expecting Disney magic on the level of The Lion King or Aladdin.

Don't see it if you're looking for something less commercial or Disney-fied.

Great singing, Great staging, Entertaining, Successfully ambitious

See it if you loved the movie. Caissie Levy's voice is phenomenal! Patty Murren's cute. Lots of Disney magic & fun. Young princesses are standouts.

Don't see it if you don't like Disney. This is the epitome of a Disney musical

Also I think this is one of Disney's best shows. Great positive story. Grea... Read more Read less


See it if Delivers the Frozen key moments. Part 2's a few shades darker for Elsa than the movie, like Jean Grey torn and holding in her Phoenix powers

Don't see it if You're immune to Disney / Frozen magic. ~80% of the movie makes it. Can't stand hearing kids in the audience screaming in excitement.

Also Ticket from an online lottery for $30 after 3 months of trying.

Entertaining, Fluffy, Perfect for children

See it if If you have a child in tow, it will enhance the experience. The effects are Disney at his best, and everyone is giving it their all.

Don't see it if This is a piece for children, and there is little for an adult here, unlike Anastasia, which can be appreciated on several levels.

Enchanting, Entertaining, Delightful, Great singing

See it if Love big splashy musicals with lots of silliness yet a message

Don't see it if Skip this if you don't want to be bombarded with lots of kids and people who've never been to Broadway before.

Ambitious, entertaining, disappointing, overrated

See it if your curiosity about Disney’s newest Broadway musical is keeping you up at night.

Don't see it if if you are able to get reasonably priced tickets to any of the following musicals: Dear Evan Hansen, Hamilton, The Band’s Visit, The Book of

Also Frozen isn’t an awful, but I was disappointed. I attended a matinee pe... Read more Read less

Great staging, Great scenery, entertaining, enjoyable

See it if you are a fan of the movie done faithfully with that Disney magic and trademark of a less than exciting movie animated feature.

Don't see it if you're tired of Disney movie to stage productions of a show that doesn't work as well on stage as other Disney productions with 1 great song

What you expect, Enchanting, Great singing, Disney-magical, Entertaining

See it if you're a fan of the movie and want to see the Disney magic brought to stage. Great as a child's 1st Broadway show

Don't see it if you're expecting anything different from the movie or didn't like the movie. Also, prepare to be surrounded by many young Elsas!

Also There's no doubt that Disney Theatrical knows how to mount a good show... Read more Read less
