Caissie Levy, Patti Murin, and Jelani Alladin, who play Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff, respectively, in the upcoming Broadway musical Frozen, are featured in the current holiday issue of Vanity Fair in a photo taken by photographer Andrew Eccles. Watch behind-the-scenes footage of the photo shoot in the video above.
The three actors were photographed in Tony-winning scenic and costume designer Christopher Oram’s designs for the production outdoors on a mountain vista in Leadville, Colorado, earlier this year while the production played its out-of-town tryout at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
The two women are joined by principal cast members Alladin (Kristoff), Greg Hildreth (Olaf), John Riddle (Hans), Robert Creighton (Weselton), Kevin Del Aguila (Oaken), Timothy Hughes (Pabbie), Andrew Pirozzi (Sven), Audrey Bennett (Young Anna), Mattea Conforti (Young Anna), Brooklyn Nelson (Young Elsa), Ayla Schwartz (Young Elsa), Alyssa Fox (Elsa Standby), Aisha Jackson (Anna Standby), and Adam Jepsen (Sven Alternate).

Ricketts, Ann Sanders, Jacob Smith, and Nicholas Ward.
The production also has scenic and costume design by two-time Tony and Olivier Award winner Christopher Oram (Wolf Hall Parts 1 & 2, The Cripple of Inishmaan, Evita), lighting design by six-time Tony Award winner Natasha Katz (Aladdin; Hello, Dolly!; An American in Paris), sound design by four-time Tony nominee Peter Hylenski (The Scottsboro Boys, Motown, After Midnight), video design by Tony winner Finn Ross (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), puppet design by Michael Curry (The Lion King, Spamalot), hair design by David Brian Brown (War Paint, She Loves Me), makeup design by Anne Ford-Coates (On Your Feet!; On the Twentieth Century), and special effects design by Jeremy Chernick (Aladdin, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child).
Two-time Tony Award winner Stephen Oremus (Avenue Q, Wicked, The Book of Mormon) is music supervisor and creates vocal, incidental, and dance arrangements. He is joined on the music team by Tony nominee Dave Metzger (orchestrations), Chris Montan (executive music producer), and Brian Usifer (music director).
The musical marks the first adaptation of the 2013 hit film to expand upon the original story. Oscar-winning songwriting team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez have written roughly a dozen new songs to accompany the film’s well-known hits. The movie’s co-director and screenwriter, Jennifer Lee, also returned to pen the book.
