NEW YORK (AP) — Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez — the Oscar-winning husband-and-wife team behind the film "Frozen" — are preparing a new musical comedy called "Up Here."

The influential California theater company La Jolla Playhouse said Tuesday that the show will be part of its 2015-16 season and will be directed by Tony Award nominee Alex Timbers.

Producers said the show is about a man in love and describe it as "about moving past ourselves — and those little voices in our head — to find happiness." Lopez and Anderson-Lopez have written the songs, lyrics and story

Lopez helped write "The Book of Mormon" and "Avenue Q," while his wife is behind Disney World's "Finding Nemo" show. Together they wrote the songs for "Frozen," including the monster hit "Let It Go."
