BroadwayBox and photographer Jenny Anderson (who shot our Classic New York Films and our Broadway Replacement Stars series) bring B'way fans backstage for an exclusive and continuing series which captures Broadway companies as they prepare to take the stage. Jenny recently made her way to the enchanted kingdom of Arendelle by way of Broadway's St. James Theatre to photograph the cast of the hit musical adaptation of Disney's Frozen.

We kick off our backstage adventure in the dressing room of leading lady Patti Murin, who stars as Anna. Today, Patti is having a mini princess party with the four young actresses who alternate the roles of Young Anna and Young Elsa at the beginning of the show, Fiona Morgan Quinn, Winter Donnelly, Mimi Ryder and Charlie Tassone.
