By June 27, 2010

Follow me on:

Brown-eyed beauty Idina Menzel has wowed audiences with her unique brand of Broadway belting since the singular success of Jonathan Larson's theatrical yet poignant ode to love, Rent.

Simply "Idina" to her adoring fans, she created the against-type role of "Amneris" in Sir Elton John's Aida and sizzled in the tailor-made "Kate" of Andrew Lippa's The Wild Party. Her superstar status exploded when she originated the role of "Elpheba" in Stephen Schwartz' history-making Wicked, winning her first Tony Award.

The film version of Rent brought Idina a whole new audience. And in 2010, Idina fans have salivated over her latest musical theatre/screen-work combo with her feature role on the Fox television smash, Glee.
