Frozen Michael Grandage “The vision is to honor the film but at the same time give it its own identity. We can do a lot onstage that you can’t do otherwise,” Grandage says. 

As for his own hopes for the audience, he added: “I’ve always found that if you can have your life changed just a little bit by watching theatre, and it can really make a difference in your life, then I think we have done our job. I hope Frozen does that.
