The national tour for Disney’s Frozen musical is opening next week just over the hill from the studio that created the animated versions.
Frozen starts performances at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles on December 4, with a nine-week engagement running through February 2, 2020. The expected rush for tickets will be somewhat democratized by a Digital Lottery, offering a chance at a limited number of $25 tickets.
