Unexpected frost severed several bushes and plants, hope they still have life, expect to have to wait till frost is over to cut them back ?



Yes - wait till you know there's going to be no more of it before cutting.

That's because the dead parts are helping to protect the living parts from further frosts. Once the frost is over, and things are sprouting, just cut off anything that isn't sprouting strongly--weak sprouts usually mean damage to the stem farther down--and maybe a bit more for balance and shape.
