Insanely talented theatrical singer/actress Idina Menzel is RETURNING to Broadway for the first time since she portrayed the ORIGINAL Elphaba in Wicked!!!
Idina has joined another original project called If/Then from the Tony-award winning minds behind famed play Next To Normal.
If/Then focuses on a woman on the cusp of her 40s who decides to move back to NYC to get a fresh start.
Mz. Menzel said in a statement:
"I’ve experienced the beauty of working on original musicals and was eager to find a project where the material was exciting and new and spoke to my heart. I’m thrilled to have finally found it - an original musical with a complex, flawed, and surprising central character that I cannot wait to bring to life onstage."
SO UNBELIEVABLY EXCITED!!!
Empress Idina BELONGS on Broadway, and we were so sad that she's stayed away for so long…
But cannot WAIT to witness her completely OWNING an original character once again!
Now if they could only get Kristin Chenoweth involved…
