Idina Menzel UK Concerts Announced

The Tony award-winning Idina Menzel is appearing in concert for one week from October 8th-14th at the Apollo Theatre in London’s West End.  She will be accompanied by a 25-piece orchestra and will also do one off concerts at Edinburgh’s Usher Hall on October 16th and the Palace Theatre Manchester on the 17th for which booking is now open.

Her concerts will feature material she has performed over 18 months of touring in the States plus a lot of new stuff including be songs from Wicked and Rent, some standards from Cole Porter and some medleys from the 30`s.

I last saw her in the UK at the Royal Albert Hall with Marvin Hamlisch as her MD and was blown away by her performance.

Miss Menzel created the part of Maureen in the musical Rent (off and on Broadway) and was the original green witch Elphaba in Wicked in San Francisco, New York and  London.

She recently released her new CD Barefoot at the Symphony in the UK.

She is currently recording dialogue and songs for the Disney animated film Frozen where she plays a queen before she resumes her US tour.
