Get to Know Broadway's 'Frozen' Actress Patti Murin with These 10 Fun Facts! (Exclusive)

Opening night has arrived for Frozen: The Broadway Musical and we caught up with the show’s star Patti Murin, who plays Anna, to learn more about her!

The actress is a Broadway vet and you might also know her from her work on Chicago Med opposite husband Colin Donnell.

Here are 10 Fun Facts about Patti:

  • 1. I’m allergic to apples and carrots, and whenever I kiss someone who has recently eaten them, my face blows up with hives. So my husband and anyone I have to kiss onstage aren’t allowed to eat them.
  • 2. I can do long division in my head.
  • 3. I started cheerleading in 8th grade and chose to do that instead of auditioning for the school musical. I kept cheering through high school and even at Syracuse University for a bit. It came in handy when one of the musicals I starred in on Broadway, Lysistrata Jones, was about cheerleaders.
  • 4. I’m a voracious reader and regularly read a book per day. I’m currently recommending one book a day via my Twitter account (@pattimurin) to encourage others to read more. Join in the fun at #PattiReadsBooks!
  • 5. The playlist I have on repeat as I get ready for Frozen is basically just Beyoncé, Pink, Kelly Clarkson, and Sara Bareilles. Their music inspires me almost as much as their spirits do.

  • 6. My husband, Colin Donnell, and I had known each other for 7 years before we started dating. I never thought of him romantically before that, and somehow I didn’t realize he was a terribly attractive man until the first time we kissed. I’m still trying to figure out how I missed that very obvious fact.
  • 7. We have two dogs, Petey and Milo, but my real dream is to own a rescue/foster farm where I can actively help save the lives of as many puppies and dogs as possible.
  • 8. Office supply stores are my happy place.
  • 9. Pretty sure I could drink ranch dressing straight from the bottle.
  • 10. I’m obsessed with goats. If anyone can find me a baby goat to snuggle with, I will love you forever.
