Patti Murin will continue playing Princess Anna in Frozen: The Broadway Musical; the Chicago Med actress has extended her run in the production.

If you haven’t seen Patti Murin in Frozen: The Broadway Musical yet, you still have a chance. She announced on social media this week that she’s staying on with the production.

“Absolutely thrilled to sign on for more time in Arendelle,” Patti revealed on Instagram.

She’s been playing Princess Anna in the production, which officially opened on March 22, 2018 and has since had more than 350 performances. Along the way, the Broadway show picked up a Tony Award nomination for Best Musical last year, though it didn’t win.

It’s an amazing role for Patti, allowing her to show off the full range of her talents as not only an actress, but a singer and an all-around performer. Frozen has been one of the most popular shows on Broadway, and the biggest reason why is how perfectly cast it is, so it’s no surprise that they’d want to keep her around awhile longer.

She has already earned an Outer Critics Circle Award nomination for Outstanding Actress in a Musical, and a Drama League Award nomination for Distinguished Performance.

Her duties as Princess Anna have limited her appearances as Dr. Nina Shore on Chicago Med, but she did appear briefly in a Chicago Fire episode recently, and producers have confirmed that Nina will be back in a future Chicago Med installment as well.

If you’re a One Chicago fan who’s in the New York area and you haven’t seen Frozen yet, Patti Murin staying with the show gives you a reason to make sure it’s on your to-do list in 2019.

She is fantastic in the production, and her performance is completely different from what she’s gotten to do so far as Nina Shore. Even if you’re not a fan of the movie or even if you have never watched it, you’ll find a lot to love about the musical. But you’ll want to plan ahead, as tickets are moving; Playbill estimates the production has made more than $85 million in tickets alone over the last year.

The production is also about to undergo some cast changes; on Feb. 19, Jelani Alladin and Greg Hildreth will be replaced by Noah J. Ricketts and Ryann Redmond, respectively, so time is running out for fans to see the original Broadway cast.
