Great singing, Great staging, Enchanting, Delightful, Romantic

See it if you're a Disney-holic who wants to be enchanted by stunning puppetry and beloved tunes

Don't see it if you cringe at being in a theatre full of pint-sized Elsas and Annas.

"Sometimes charming, sometimes awesome, sometimes lumbering...You become aware of major strains in the adaptation...Anna becomes a more conventional Disney girl...As played, quite well, by Ms. Levy...you cannot help but feel the torture Elsa suffers...It does not comport very well with the comic numbers...The supporting cast is charming, the singing spectacular...'Frozen' is going to have to figure how to make the dark character less of a bore and the light character more compelling."

"While not everything works perfectly, the production...is a generally faithful adaptation that appeared to delight the audience...Murin makes Anna her own with classic nuanced stage singing and lots of spark...Levy brings a deft mix of icy imperiousness and girlish yearning to Elsa...Grandage appears to be holding the effects in check...lest they overpower the story...By the time it all wraps up...the issues that need tending to hardly seem to matter."

"In its live rendition of 'Let It Go'...the musical wows adults as much as kids with a brilliant spectacle—as poignant as it is jaw-dropping...Grandage and his production team have made the show crisp and original. We might even say better—or at least satisfyingly different—than the movie, while being faithful to it. The creators have added heft and gravitas without making the story darker or scarier...The excellent Levy finds her perfect complement in Murin."

"Should be —and could be—a whole lot better....Simply put, 'Frozen' currently puts its focus too much on things that matter less in the theater and not enough on what matters most: the power of myth and the bond between two young women who represent us...The two lead actresses—they’re both well-cast—have forged quite credible characters individually; they have not yet merged as sisters of different stripes, nor does the book or score do what it must to help them."

"A technically polished adaptation...A wondrous family-friendly spectacle...It is every bit the crowd-pleaser it feels calculated to be...'Frozen' seems constructed by algorithm...Lightly preachy, gently scary, timidly bawdy, and tepidly funny...Reworked for the stage nimbly, with fine voices and clever choreography, although the story remains a problem...More derivative and less daring than previous Disney screen-to-stage transfers, 'Frozen' is fun but not transporting."

"May be one of the very best stage musicals Disney Theatrical has mounted...What surprised me most, though, was the inventiveness and elaborating staging Disney employed here...Grandage stages difficult moments with grace...Murin’s Anna emerges as the real star of the piece...The performances, the staging, the incredible special effects, and the added songs...kind of make you forget this was ever a film...It works beautifully on the stage, and with a few tweaks, it should be something great."

"'Let It Go' still delivers and the staging is amazing...Levy kills the song in person and it’s worth the full ticket price by itself...Sven steals every scene he’s in...There are some amazing practical and projector-based effects...The second act is slow. And it’s mostly new songs which aren’t as good as the movie tunes...Missing story elements...Those omissions are weird...They tried to fill some gaps with one of the Hidden Folk serving as a sort of narrator...Show, don’t tell."
