One of the things I’ll be working on this weekend is relaunching the Fan Corner. I’d really like to make Idina-Here not only a place where fans can come and get info on Idina, but also to share their experiences, contribute to the site and interact with each other. So first order of business is this section of the site where you can send in your stories and your fanart as well. I’d really like to launch it with some content already in it, so calling for your contributions!

Same(ish) conditions as before apply:
- ONLY accepting Meeting Idina Stories (i.e. no fanfiction, etc)
- ’1-of-a-kind’ stories preferred (3-second, “she looked right at me!” meetings don’t count).

This post has been edited to include the full interview.
Idina starts around the 24 minute mark.
Hey everyone! Sorry I’ve been MIA, exams kept me busier that I thought they would. So let’s play catch-up!
First and foremost, real “news”: PBS is airing Idina’s interview with Charlie Rose tonight. Check your local listings.
Now onto a few oldish news so we can move on to the newer stuff as it starts happening:
+ Idina was featured in M&V Magazine, with a new interview, which you can read here.
+ The cast of If/Then played “Name that Tune” with Seth Rudetsky, listen to that here.
+ Shoshana Bean and Eden Espinosa visited If/Then… here
That’s all for now, regular updates will resume now! And stay tuned for some site news this weekend
Idina Menzel sang the Star-Spangled Banner before Tuesday night’s All-Star Game, also performing Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young” in honor of the All-Star teachers being recognized.
Menzel, the Tony-winning actress from “Wicked” and star of this year’s mega-hit “Frozen,” chatted with the Daily News earlier in the day at Target Field about her All-Star experience.
NYDN: Growing up on Long Island, were you a Yankees or Mets fan?
Menzel: “That’s a tough question. My dad liked to bet on games when I was growing up, so when you have a dad who likes to gamble on games, it’s not about which team is your favorite, it’s about which one covers the spread.”
NYDN: Who were your favorite players?
Menzel: “I loved the whole Reggie Jackson, Lou Piniella and Thurman Munson team That was the team my dad taught me baseball with.”
NYDN: Which of your characters would make the best baseball player?
Menzel: “Probably Elphaba (from Wicked). Well, Elsa (from Frozen) would, too. Anyone that has magic powers. Elphaba would be good, though she might blend in with the lawn. She’s very determined and hard-working.”
NYDN: What drew you to the idea of singing at the All-Star Game?
Menzel: “I’m honored to be invited and asked. To just be here, it didn’t have to draw me. I was here the minute that they asked. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do.”
NYDN: Derek Jeter has been a focal point this week as he plays his final All-Star Game. As a New Yorker, is this exciting for you?
Menzel: “I’m ecstatic. He’s a classy guy. Everyone is sad to see him go.”
NYDN: What does it mean to you to help honor the All-Star teachers?
Menzel: “It’s really extraordinary to be here at the All-Star Game and to have them honoring our teachers. My sister is a second-grade teacher and it’s so important. I have a little 4 ½-year old boy and we don’t (honor teachers) enough. I commend People and Target for honoring them they way they deserve.”
NYDN: What will it be like singing a Dylan song in his home state of Minnesota?
Menzel: “That’s a little intimidating, but I hope he’s OK with it. I took a few liberties.”
As previously announced, Idina performed earlier today at the 2014 Major League Baseball All Star Game! She first sang a rendition of Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young”, followed by the Star-Spangled Banner. Check out both performances below:
