Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell Want to Bring Frozen's Elsa and Anna to BroadwayJoanna Mazewski
It’s one of the most successful films in Disney history, so it would only be natural to bring Frozen to Broadway, right?
According to Cosmopolitan, Frozen and Broadway star Idina Menzel expressed quite the excitement when recently asked if she would be willing to play Queen Elsa on the Broadway stage.
During Variety’s Power of Women luncheon, the talented actress and singer told the magazine, “Yes! Sure! Absolutely!” about playing the now iconic Ice Queen in a live performance. (It’s not like she would really have to say more to convince us there, right?) Could you imagine Idina singing “Let It Go” on stage every night? I along with my kids would pack our bags for the next flight to New York City if that were to happen.
According to the magazine, there’s a good chance that we’ll be seeing Broadway stars building snow men on stage as Disney is in the very early stages of bringing the movie to Broadway, although casting is presumably still a ways off. Along with Idina, Kristen Bell, who plays Anna in the movie, has said that she would like to play her character on the stage adaption of the film as well.
“I certainly hope that they try,” Kristen told Variety magazine just last month. “Everybody in Frozen’ is a Broadway veteran so I certainly hope they try and wrangle us.”
Tell us Babble readers, would you be excited to see Frozen on Broadway? Actually, let me answer that for you the same way Anna answered Hans after his marriage proposal: YES!
