Broadway's 'Frozen' Stars Celebrate One-Year Anniversary!

Caissie Levy and Patti Murin hug it out on the red carpet while attending the one-year anniversary party for Disney’s Frozen the Musical on Sunday (March 24) at the Intercontinental Hotel in New York City.

The show’s leading ladies were joined at the event by Kristoff actor Jelani Alladin and the current Hans actor Joe Carroll.

The musical had its official opening night performance on March 22, 2018. In the show’s first year on Broadway, it has grossed over $95 million in ticket sales!

“It’s been a year since we opened officially on Broadway, but almost THREE years since I’ve been involved in the making of #FrozenBroadway. It has been one of the most challenging and rewarding things I’ve ever done. Ive never been so grateful that this is where life has led me, and I’m living these days by the words of Macklemore and Kesha: ‘Someday these will be the good old days.’ Also I plan to stay forever because thinking about my hypothetical ‘final performance’ as Anna sends me into cataclysmic shock,” Patti wrote on Instagram. “I just love you, my entire extended #FrozenBroadway family. Thank you for giving me all of your gifts, large and small.”
