Frozen the Musical has finally opened in London after a long delay caused by the Covid pandemic - But is it any good?

The Evening Standard’s theatre critic, Nick Curtis, tells the podcast the production is hampered by sticking too closely to the movie.

We also talk about the £60 million refurbishment of Theatre Royal Drury Lane, which is hosting Frozen, and the return of big productions to London with Cinderella already open and Back to the Future to come.
