If you liked “Let It Go” from Frozen, read this!
If you’re a Disney fan, there’s no doubt you love their new animation film, “Frozen” – we certainly do. We’re big fans of New York born actress and singer Idina Menzel, the voice of princess Elsa in the film. If you like the songs “Let It Go” and “For The First Time In Forever”, who not check out her other stuff?
Not only does she portray the beautiful blonde animated Elsa, but can be seen on stage as the eerily green skinned yet gold-hearted witch Elphaba in the Broadway hit musical “Wicked”, for which she won the Tony Award for Best Leading Actress in a Musical in 2004 – Becky and Louise both independently went to see her in it and loved every second. “Defying Gravity” brought us to tears!
Glee fans will also be delighted to hear that she plays Rachel’s mother, Shelby. Why not have a listen to their duet version of Lady GaGa’s “Poker Face”?
It doesn’t stop there – she starred in the original Broadway cast of “Rent” as Maureen and has just opened a new show on Broadway, “If/Then”. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed and hope that it comes over to the West End some time soon! There has also been talk of “Frozen: The Musical”, which we are very excited to hear more about. If you’re into musical theatre then she’s definitely one to watch and to draw inspiration from. Who knows, one day you might be up on stage with her!
