The “Frozen: The Broadway Musical” will not reopen when the coronavirus pandemic ends, making it the first Broadway musical to be canceled during the pandemic.

“This difficult decision was made for several reasons but primarily because we believe that three Disney productions will be one too many titles to run successfully in Broadway’s new landscape,” said Thomas Schumacher, the president of Disney Theatrical Productions, according to the Times.

That said, “Frozen: The Broadway Musical” will still tour the country. It was originally scheduled to appear at the Eccles Theaterin Salt Lake City in April. But it has been rescheduled for October 2021.

So you have time to prepare. But, in light of the recent announcement, we wanted to take a look back at our favorite “Frozen” music from all the soundtracks.

Which soundtrack had the best hit song? Which album had the best deep cut?

Here are some of our favorite songs from “Frozen,” “Frozen: The Broadway Musical” and “Frozen 2.”


Best hit song

“Let It Go” from “Frozen”

There are some great candidates for this category, including powerful Elsa solos like “Monster” from “Frozen: The Broadway Musical” and “Into the Unknown” from “Frozen 2.” But we couldn’t pass up Idina Menzel’s legendary “Let It Go” from the original “Frozen” movie.


Best deep cut

“Dangerous to Dream” from “Frozen: The Broadway Musical”

This beautiful song that follows Elsa’s thoughts surrounding her coronation as Queen of Arendelle in “Frozen: The Broadway Musical” is our favorite of the perhaps less well-known “Frozen” songs.


Best funny song

“In Summer” from “Frozen”

Olaf the snowman’s hilarious tune about his big plans for summer in the original “Frozen” film is our favorite funny “Frozen” song.


Best ballad

“True Love” from “Frozen: The Broadway Musical”

Anna’s heart-wrenching reflections about true love in the second act of “Frozen: The Broadway Musical” comprise our favorite “Frozen” ballad.


Best love song

“Some Things Never Change” from “Frozen 2”

While “Love Is an Open Door” from the original “Frozen” movie is a fun song that celebrates love at first sight, “Some Things Never Change” from “Frozen 2” goes beyond that to represent not only more long-term romantic love, but also love for family, friends and community, making it our favorite “Frozen” love song.


Best song for kids

“Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” from “Frozen”

Anna’s spunky attempts to get Elsa to play with her in “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” from the original “Frozen” film are sure to entertain the youngest “Frozen” fans.


Best song for adults

“Lost in the Woods” from “Frozen 2”

Adults familiar with ’80s music will appreciate the nostalgic style of Kristoff’s “Lost in the Woods” from “Frozen 2.”


Best album overall

We love each of the “Frozen,” “Frozen: The Broadway Musical” and “Frozen 2” soundtracks, and choosing between them is a difficult task. But ultimately, we had to pick the original “Frozen” movie for giving us so many classic songs from “Let It Go” to “For the First Time in Forever” and setting in motion both “Frozen: The Broadway Musical” and “Frozen 2.”
