When we first saw “Frozen”, we knew it was destined to become a Broadway show. Now, As “Frozen: The Broadway Musical” prepares to make its official debut nearly five years later, we’re getting our first look at how much more grown up this version is by the songs that have been added.
If these first few songs are any indication, the soundtrack to “Frozen: The Broadway Musical” is certain to be played again and again in our house and in the car once it’s available. Here are the first few songs of the dozen or so added numbers that have been added.
So far, 4 songs have been released. Each one has been realeased as part of “Frozen Fridays” as we get closer to the official debut of “Frozen: The Broadway Musical” on March 22nd.
Dangerous to Dream
What Do You Know About Love?
As you can hear, we’re definitely getting more of Elsa’s side of the story than just “Let it Go”. (Don’t worry, that song is still in there, as well as an added reprise). It will also still have Olaf and Sven to lighten the mood. Despite that, It’s hard to say how most people will react to this somewhat darker version of such a popular family movie.
Personally, I’m glad they didn’t turn in into a stage show with the exact same script and songs. While I enjoyed the movie, I think I’ll enjoy the musical even more due to the added depth. I hope they peel back the layers on Hans a bit more, as well.
In a way, it’s fitting that “Frozen” has matured because our family’s biggest “Frozen” fan has also done a lot of growing up in the last 5 years. The timing for “Frozen: The Broadway Musical” couldn’t be better as Broadway has become her thing.
Now I just have to manage to get tickets.

When I first heard about the Frozen Broadway show, I didn’t have high hopes for it. I was expecting a stage adaptation of the movie. But now that we’ve heard these wonderful new songs and seen the amazing photos from the show, I cannot wait for this show! I’m really hoping they’ll do a tour of it and come to Nashville so I can see it!
