The theater itself is beautiful! Went to see frozen here and it was absolutely amazing too! I would definitely recommend seeing this show! The props and theatrics for the musical was breathtaking!

This is an older theater, renovated for Frozen. The seats are small sized, with a small lobby. Seems quite a few stairs too. Inside, it was compact and sitting at the back was not too far from the stage. The stage controller was at the back of the right orchestra section. Three levels without stalls.

Frozen is a good musical for kids and teens. I thought the lightings were a bit dim, and make it easier to nap. An 8pm show for the little ones are tough to keep them awake. The script might need a bit of rework, and concentrate on the kids. That means no funeral or death scenes, and no nude costumes. Anna in her underwear, that I can live with since that is the old style one. Some reviews complained about having a black actor as one of the parents, but that is fine. This is a make believe musical, not college genetics class. You do realize the Queen has magic powers!

The show was fantastic. The staff clearly either dislikes their job or really should not work with the public. Operationally, the place is a nightmare. Should the occasion happen where I needed to return to this theater for another show... it would have to be a must see and not just a want to see.

First let me say the play frozen was awesome. Now the security at the door is rude. I get having security but you can be somewhat nice. Theater help was amazing. Theater seats are small!!! For the price you pay.

Just returned from enjoying Frozen on Broadway...Fabulous production...talented cast...faithful to the movie yet fresh! Unfortunately there were several "butt" jokes throughout and 3 scenes with "nude" dancers (nothing but flesh-colored leotards on) covering parts with branches. There were also 3 on-stage costume changes which left Anna in her undergarments till she was clothed - blatant immodesty! Very poor taste on all accounts. The hour-long musical at Disneyland is every bit as polished, but without the crudeness. Our 4 tickets were over $900, and while it really was excellent, the impropriety was both surprising and disappointing! Even Wicked, one we had a little concern over, had nothing inappropriate for the discerning theatre-goer. Wish I had saved our almost $1,000!
