The Song: "Monster" from the Frozen the Broadway musical
Where you heard it first: Frozen has finally opened on Broadway and little by little, they are releasing some of the 12 new songs that were written for the show. Among these songs written by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (who wrote songs for the original Disney film) is a new solo by Elsa played by Caissie Levy. In this song, Elsa wonders what these ice powers have made her and how she can hope to control it. I have been excited for this show since they announced it would happen several years ago and couldn’t wait to hear new music. I am so glad that I have not yet been disappointed with the music that has been released.
Why it’s been stuck in your head: Theatre nerds have already dubbed “Monster” Caissie Levy’s own “Defying Gravity” allowing her to show off her vocal range and show what her character has been through. The lyrics are a great story and help us better understand Elsa as a character.
Why you recommend it to our listeners: If you’re as big of a fan of Broadway as these two co-hosts, you will not be disappointed with this.
