Idina Menzel is heading back to the stage! Idina will appear in “Skintight,” a comic drama by Joshua Harmon (“Bad Jews,” “Significant Other”), as part of a limited Off-Broadway engagement. “Skintight” is described as “a scorching examination of beauty, youth and sex.” Idina has been involved with the production since the first reading in January 2015. Here’s a description:
Reeling from her ex-husband’s engagement to a much younger woman, Jodi Isaac (Idina Menzel) turns to her famous fashion-designer dad for support. Instead, she finds him wrapped up in his West Village townhouse with Trey. Who’s 20. And not necessarily gay. But probably an adult film star. At least, according to Jodi’s son. Who’s also 20. And definitely gay. “Skintight” assays the nature of love, the power of attraction, and the ways in which a superficial culture persists in teaching its children that all that matters is what’s on the inside.
“Skintight”, which is a Roundabout Theater production, will begin performances on May 24, 2018 at the Laura Pels Theatre and open officially on June 21, 2018. The play is scheduled to run through Aug. 26, 2018.
Exciting news! Idina Menzel’s Beaches will be released on DVD on May 9! Idina and Nia Long star as two very different women who share an unexpected friendship that, even with its ups and downs, lasts for decades. This new version of the 1988 film includes Idina’s performances of iconic songs from the original movie such as “Wind Beneath My Wings” and “The Glory of Love,” in addition to Idina’s original song, “Last Time.” The Beaches DVD will be available at Walmart for the suggested retail price of $14.98. Here’s a look at the cover art:
Fun news! Idina Menzel guest stars on the first episode of Netflix’s new preschool show, Julie’s Greenroom! The show, which is available for streaming now, stars Julie Andrews as the director of a performing arts center in which she teaches performing arts workshops in the theatre and its “Greenroom.” Guest stars join the show to teach kids different aspects of musical theater and the performing arts.
