Frozen Broadway musical: NAKED sauna scene shock – Has Disney Let It Go too far?

After months of tinkering and out-of-town try-outs, the latest Disney spectacular has finally hit Broadway.

The staged version of the biggest animated movie of all time is the hottest ticket in town and eager crowds flocked to the first previews.

Early reactions are predictably gushing about the lavish sets and the wonder of seeing a beloved movie brough to life in dazzling style.

However some audience members were a little surprised by a rather “risque” naked number which opens the Second Act and is set in Oaken’s famous sauna…

The new Frozen musical stars Jelani Alladin as Kristof and Patti Murin as Anna, with Andrew Pirozzi as Sven and Caissie Levy as Elsa.

In the movie, the characters stumble into Wandering Oaken’s sauna but the scene is completely innocent.

The stage version opens Acts 2 with the rousing number Hygge which apparently features fig leaves and little else to protect the actors’ modesty in their cheeky body suits.

Kids, of course, love it and find it funny. Some of the adults at the special preview admitted it wasn’t quite what they were expecting.

As well as the iconic numbers from the animated classic, the show features over a dozen new songs from Kristen Anderson-Lopez and her husband, Robert Lopez.

A new promo video for the song Monster has just been released online but it seems to be the rather “risque” Hygge which is causing the greatest reaction.

One audience member from the opening night, 36-year-old Jenn Mante said: “There was more nudity than expected from Disney!” 


Playful sauna scenes aside, the opening night reactions were overwhelmingly positive.

One fan gushed: “It’s all magical, fantastical,” while a happy family of three said: “Disney does such a good job… That was spectacular.”

Sisters Kathleen Sanderson and Natalie Brady had travelled all the way from Utah and Ohio added: “We loved it. We didn’t expect to cry, but we did.”

Frozen the Musical is playing at the St. James Theatre, 246 West 44th Street, New York
