Disney’s Frozen, the Broadway musical based on the 2013 film brings a world of snow, ice and the Northern Lights to the stage with video design by Finn Ross of FRAY Studio and AV support from WorldStage. Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, the Tony Award-nominated Frozen premiered at Broadway’s St. James Theatre earlier this year after following an out of town run in Denver in 2017. For this collaboration FRAY tasked WorldStage with supplying a large complement of equipment including state-of-the-art media servers, the latest in laser projection, and a cutting edge LED wall to help transform the set of Frozen into a magical, icy domain.
