THE KENNEDY CENTER

THE KENNEDY CENTER

It was announced today that Idina will be replacing fellow Broadway legend Patti LuPone as the guest vocalist for the National Symphony Orchestra Pops season opening weekend October 28-30 at Washington, DC’s Kennedy Center.

Hot on the heels of her sold-out performance with the NSO at Wolf Trap in July, Tony winner Idina Menzel (Wicked) opens the NSO Pops season with Principal Pops Conductor Marvin Hamlisch in a diverse program of classic pop, musical theater favorites (including hits from Wicked and Rent) and her own original stories and songs. A powerhouse of talent, the Glee favorite constantly amazes audiences with her compelling, humorous, and emotional performances.

In a statement Idina said, “I am delighted to return to the National Symphony Orchestra so quickly, and especially to open the NSO’s Pops Season with Marvin Hamlisch. We all worked together for the first time just a few days ago at Wolf Trap, and we had a terrific time. I can’t wait to be with Marvin and the NSO again!”

Tickets go on sale to the public August 11th and are $20 – $85 and can be purchased (at that time) on the Kennedy Center’s website.

Screencaps from her performances of “Defying Gravity” and “What I Did For Love” have been added to the gallery!

‘LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE’ WORKSHOP

‘LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE’ WORKSHOP

It was revealed today that Idina participated in a workshop reading of a developing musical adaptation of the Academy Award-winning film Little Miss Sunshine with fellow Wild Party alum Brian D’Arcy James. As you might recall from our recent Q&A with Idina, she stated her desire to work with him once again. Perhaps this is just a taste of things to come? The musical is slated to premiere at the La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego, California February 15 – March 27, 2011.

NOTE: This does NOT mean Idina will be a part of the public production. Casting in new shows can change a dozen times before it’s finalized, and even if we’re lucky enough to have Idina be a part of the La Jolla production, it does not mean she will be part of the cast if/when it transfers to Broadway. Let’s just all cross our fingers, shall we? Any additional news about this will be posted as soon as it’s made public.

Three photos from the reading have been added to our gallery. Click below to enjoy!
