When Broadway re-opens, it will do so without a certain snow queen.
Disney Theatrical Productions announced Thursday that “Frozen” and its ubiquitous anthem “Let It Go” have hit their last high notes at the St. James Theatre. The show will close having played its final performance on Wednesday evening March 11, right before Broadway went dark due to the coronavirus. It will have played 825 performances and 26 previews.
Other shows have also decided not to move forward when theater come back on line — some, such as “Hangmen” and a revival of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” with Laurie Metcalf, before even formally opening. However, “Frozen” is the first major musical to dim its lights due to the pandemic.
