Director Alex Timbers departs Frozen musical

Variety has revealed that Alex Timbers has exited the Broadway adaptation of Disney's Frozen.

In a statement, Thomas Schumacher (president and producer of Disney Theatrical Production) commented says: "Making the tough calls when creating a new Broadway musical is never easy, but this was especially painful. Alex Timbers is one of the most exciting and innovative theater directors I know, and we've proudly worked with him from my support of the early development of 'Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson' through our work together on 'Peter and the Starcatcher.' 

"Though we have chosen to go in another direction with this role, we are committed to seeing 'Frozen's' tremendous theatrical potential brought to life onstage."

Timbers' replacement is yet to be announced. The musical is scheduled to premiere at Denver Center for the Performing Arts in summer 2017, ahead of a spring 2018 opening on Broadway.
