Will my Crape Myrtle Survive?

My Crape Myrtle leaves were zapped by this weeks' frost.
Will my crape myrtle get new leaves? Should I prune the
shrub back? Thank you for any advice.

give them a month to see what happens..

then post a pic.. so we might come to some conclusions for you ...

you can always cut off dead stuff in summer.. but if you go cutting off not dead stuff now.. not knowing if it is dead or alive.. well .. ???
