'Frozen' Teaser PosterThe Golden Globes that Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen took home last night for Best Animated Feature was still warm when news that Disney Theatrical was prepping to head to the Broadway stage by way of Fortune.com. The article, which spoke of the film’s momentum, does use the term ‘Broadway’ twice (once in the headline), but never directly attributes it to Bob Iger, the CEO and Chairman of The Walt Disney Company.

Contrary to previous reports, however (and none that originated from Stitch Kingdom), the adaptation of the Miramax film is credited to Lee Hall. It will be directed by Declan Donnellan and is being presented as a co-production between Disney Theatrical and Sonia Friedman Productions.

‘Shakespeare In Love’ Staged Production News Imminent

'Shakespeare in Love' Theatrical PosetrWe first spoke of Disney Theatrical’s intent to develop the Miramax film Shakespeare in Love into a staged production exclusively back in early 2010. News of the production — along with several others we had talked about — has since been confirmed back in 2011 with word that Tom Stoppard would be adopting it for the stage, but little on the project can be found since.

We now believe that news of the production, which will make its debut in London (prior to Disney’s goal of bringing it to the Broadway stage), is likely to start in early 2014 with news of its staging imminent.
