Oh and here’s a clip promoting Season 41 of Sesame Street. Idina and Taye show up about halfway through!

RED BANK RESCHEDULED

Due to a scheduling conflict with the Count Basie Theatre Foundation and New Jersey Symphony, Idina’s upcoming concert at Red Bank, NJ’s Count Basie Theatre has been rescheduled for February 3, 2011 at 8:00 pm ET. All tickets dated October 12, 2010 will be honored on the new date.

If you cannot attend on the new date, they request you call the box office at (732) 842-9000 by Friday, December 31 for a refund. If this new date is now agreeable for you and you’d like to purchase tickets, simply click their logo below.

Note: VIP packages that include meet & greets are available for purchase, as part of a fundraiser for the theater. Information is available at the above link.

By the way, limited tickets are still available for the three (3!) concerts Idina’s doing this weekend in Cincinnati with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Click here for tickets. She’s done quite a bit of local press for these shows, which I will collect and post when I do the news update to include photos from the concerts after this weekend. If you’d like to read them now, head on over to our Twitter, because all the links are there! Also, here’s a cute little video she made for the CSO and everyone who will be in attendance (which includes me, so if you see me, feel free to come say hi!).

US OPEN + TICKET CONTESTS

While in New York this past weekend for Fashion’s Night Out activities, Idina and Taye attended the men’s tennis semi-final of the US Open. A handful of photos have been added to the gallery. Click below to view.

IDINA + MICHAEL KORS DO FNO

Well, last night Idina’s appearance at designer/Project Runway judge Michael Kors’ flagship Manhattan store drew quite the crowd for Fashion’s Night Out. So many people went, in fact, that not everyone could fit in the store! Wearing all Michael Kors’ fashions (and adding one of his Hamilton handbags to her ensemble at the end of the night to support the shopping holiday), Idina, accompanied by her pianist Rob, performed Evita-style from the second floor balcony to the packed store. She sang “Poker Face” with the help of the crowd, and the designer joined her for “Defying Gravity.”

Here is the video Michael Kors’ team made:

There are a number of other videos on YouTube now, including “Poker Face.” Simply run a search for Idina’s recent uploads and you’ll find them!

Photos have been added to our gallery:

Fashion’s Night Out has confirmed that Idina will be performing at Michael Kors’ Madison Avenue boutique on Friday, September 10, as part of New York’s city-wide festivities. The performance is free and open to the public, and there are some rumors that she may have a special guest with her. We’ll see! IdinaMenzel.com has announced that her performance will take place at 9:00 pm local time.

Last week, Idina & Taye attended the Sunset Strip Music Festival, including a performance by the Smashing Pumpkins. Some paparazzi photographs from the night have surfaced. Click below to view them in HQ.
