I’ve created the following polls to get a visual representation of Idina’s fan base. Please vote in the two polls, and then answer the question at the bottom as a comment!
If it was up to you, in what city would you have Idina perform?
Idina performed with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra on June 17. She debuted three new (as in, she’s never performed them live before) songs at this show! I won’t list them here, so as to not spoil the surprise for anyone, but they are discussed in the reviews. Here is a collection of media for your viewing and reading pleasure:
– WFAA-Dallas coverage (with video of performance!): WFAA.com
– Dallas Morning News review: DallasNews.com
– Dallas-Fort Worth review: DFW.com
– My own review: BroadwayWorld.com
And of course, photos in the gallery!
Tickets to Idina’s remaining shows are selling fast, so if you’re considering attending (and I recommend you do if it’s at all possible!), make sure you purchase ASAP. Links to purchase tickets are in the sidebar for quick and easy access.
