On the Scene: 'Frozen' cast performs live for the first (and probably only) time ever

It’s rare to be a part of a true once-in-a-lifetime experience. But on Sunday night, I was lucky enough to be in the audience for Disney’s Frozen live cabaret, featuring cast members of the animated hit singing songs from the film’s No. 1 soundtrack.

Josh Gad, who voiced the snowman Olaf in the film, hosted the evening and joked that though he was happy for the film’s huge success, he was no longer getting live-action film offers any more. “Apparently Disney didn’t realize they have a concert hall named after them, so we’re here at this bat mitzvah venue,” the funny guy quipped about the intimate Bel Air venue. Gad said co-star Jonathan Groff — who was supposed to co-host — couldn’t attend because he was trying to boost the ratings for his HBO show Looking. Of course, he was again joking and said that Groff was actually sick.
