Frozen: The Musical, which opened two years ago, will not be returning to Broadway when the theater district opens back up. The shutdown of the district was recently extended through Labor Day.
In what could turn out to be the start of a domino effect for many Broadway productions, Disney confirmed today that 'Frozen' will not reopen when the COVID-19 shutdown ends https://t.co/qZFKo8zeni— The Hollywood Reporter (@THR) May 14, 2020
The show wasn't the hit expected, only grossing about a $1 million a week outside of the holiday season.
The musical joins the was-in-previews productions of Hangmen and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf as shows that will not be returning and insiders say more will likely join them.
Two other shows set to debut during the shutdown -- Plaza Suite and MJ -- have already rescheduled their openings for next March.
Industry surveys say audiences will continue to wait to return to Broadway even after it opens back up.
