Transcription

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight Not a footprint to be seen. A kingdom of isolation, and it looks like I'm the Queen The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside Couldn't keep it in; Heaven knows I've tried Don't let them in, don't let them see Be the good girl you always have to be Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know Well now they know Let it go, let it go Can't hold it back anymore Let it go, let it go Turn away and slam the door I don't care what they're going to say Let the storm rage on. The cold never bothered me anyway It's funny how some distance Makes everything seem small And the fears that once controlled me Can't get to me at all It's time to see what I can do To test the limits and break through No right, no wrong, no rules for me, I'm free! Let it go, let it go And I'll rise like the break of dawn Let it go, let it go That perfect boy is gone Here I stand And here I'll stay Let the storm rage on My power flurries through the air into the ground My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast I'm never going back, the past is in the past Let it go, let it go And I'll rise like the break of dawn Let it go, let it go That perfect boy is gone Here I stand In the light of day Let the storm rage on The cold never bothered me anyway!

Early life

Fontana was born in Stockton, California to parents Sharon Marie Fontana (née Simarro; born 1951) and Ernest John Fontana (born 1948).[1] His mother is an elementary school teacher and his father is an agronomist. He has one sister. He is of half Italian, one quarter Portuguese, and one quarter Spanish descent. Fontana graduated from Richland High School in Richland, Washington in 2000.[2] As a teenager he studied Theatre Arts at Interlochen Arts Camp at Interlochen Center for the Arts. He is a graduate of the University of Minnesota/Guthrie Theater BFA Actor Training Program, class of 2004.[3]

Career

In 2005, as a member of the Essentials, Fontana co-wrote the musical comedy Perfect Harmony,[4] and originated the role of Philip Fellowes V.[5] In 2006, he starred as Hamlet in The Guthrie Theatre's performance of the Shakespearean classic,[6] before moving to New York City to star as Matt in the Off-Broadway revival of The Fantasticks.[7] His Broadway debut was Sunday in the Park with George in 2007. Fontana originated the role of Tony in the Broadway production of Billy Elliot from October 1, 2008 to July 4, 2009. He was awarded the 2010 Drama Desk Award for Best Featured Actor in a Play for his work in Brighton Beach Memoirs. He starred as Prince Topher in Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella on Broadway, for which he was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Leading Actor in a Musical.

In 2013, he provided the voice of Prince Hans in the Walt Disney Animation Studios film Frozen.

In 2015, Fontana became the first guest artist to perform three times in the space of one year with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir where he met the cast of Sesame Street.[8] Fontana also joined the cast of the CW romantic musical comedy-drama Crazy Ex-Girlfriend that same year. On November 11, 2016, it was announced that Fontana was leaving the TV series after his one-year contract with the CW.[9]

He stars as Michael Dorsey in the stage musical adaptation of the film Tootsie, which premiered in Chicago at the Cadillac Palace Theatre from September 11 to October 14, 2018. The musical opened on Broadway on April 23, 2019. Direction is by Scott Ellis with music and lyrics by David Yazbek and book by Robert Horn.[10][11]
