"Frozen," the Broadway musical, will launch its national tour at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in fall 2019, the Pantages announced Tuesday.

Following its splashy New York opening in March at the St. James Theatre, "Frozen" earned three Tony nominations: best musical (under the direction of Michael Grandage), best score (by Oscar-winning composers Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez) and best book (Jennifer Lee).

The 2013 Disney film won the Oscar for best animated feature and went on to become the highest-grossing animated film of all time. The breakout song, "Let It Go," has helped the "Frozen" franchise corner the market on princess dresses.

Expectations were high for the Disney Theatrical Productions' adaptation. The show received mixed reviews and trailed in Tony nominations to the likes of "SpongeBob SquarePants" and "Mean Girls," which each received 12.

Nonetheless, fans of Snow Queen Elsa and her quirky sister, Anna, have helped the show smash a box office record at the St. James.

Casting and sale dates for tickets have not been announced.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
