Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth reunited to perform together for the first time in 12 years! The duo sang “For Good”, their iconic duet from Wicked, as part of Wicked’s YouTube series Out of Oz: Wicked Studio Sessions, which features Wicked alumni and current performers singing reimagined versions of songs from the hit musical.
Idina Menzel participated in Tribeca Talks: Storytellers in NYC yesterday. Idina spoke with Marc Platt, who produced Wicked about her career and experiences. You can watch most of the conversation above. Playbill.com has a great write-up of the event, as well as the Tribeca Film website.
Idina Menzel attended the Motion Picture & Television Fund’s fifth annual “Reel Stories, Real Lives” charity event in Hollywood on Thursday. The MPTF’s mission is to “support the entertainment community in living and aging well, with dignity and purpose, and in helping each other in times of need.”
Idina read a true story, “Tony & Madi,” about two industry retirees who met while living at MPTF’s retirement community. They got married, at the ages of 88 and 75, and continue to write and create. Here are some photos:
