    Might catch a few more flies if you mentioned her role on Glee. Did not realize she played the original Elphaba…

  • She'sMoreThanGlee Said:

    She puts on an AMAZING concert. You don’t have to know Glee, or even Broadway, to appreciate her vocal talent (and comedic timing).

  • burgeoningfoodie Said:

    I have yet to see mention of this concert on ticketmaster or meymandi’s site. Any other news about when tickets go on sale?

    Menzel originated two of the most celebrated roles in recent Broadway history: Elphaba, the witch, in director Joe Mantello’s smash-hit production of Wicked and spirited performance artist Maureen in Jonathan Larson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Rent. In addition to earning the Tony Award for Lead Actress in a Musical for her work as the misunderstood green girl, Menzel has been nominated for a second Tony, two Drama Desk Awards and a Drama League Award. She also received the Theatregoers Choice Award for Best Actress in a Musical during Wicked’s run in London’s West End.

    Menzel recently appeared in the television hit Glee, and is currently on a sold-out tour, performing with leading orchestras around the country. A skillful songwriter, she released the Glen Ballard-produced album I Stand for her label, Warner Bros. Records, and played it to sold out houses around the United States. She has also appeared opposite Susan Sarandon, Patrick Dempsey and Amy Adams in Disney’s hit Enchanted, in Chris Columbus’s film version of Rent and in a co-starring role opposite Salma Hayek and Colin Farrell in Robert Towne’s Ask the Dust.

    Regular tickets for this special event performance featuring Idina Menzel range from $43 to $86. Meymandi Concert Hall is located in the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts, 2 E. South St. in Raleigh.
