WILD in Concert Starring Idina Menzel

WILD in Concert Starring Idina Menzel

American Repertory Theater at Harvard University announced their 2021-2022 season at their Spring Celebration on Saturday night and Idina Menzel is part of it! Idina will perform the World Premiere of WILD in Concert (in-person) in December 2021.They also premiered a demo of Idina singing the musical’s title track at the event!

WILD was previously titled ‘The Circle of Becoming’ and you may recall that Idina and her collaborators, Justin Tranter, Diane Paulus and V (formerly Eve Ensler) participated in a virtual behind the scenes event for the theater earlier this year. At the time it sounded like they were still in the very early stages of the project, so this is a very exciting surprise.

WILD is a new musical fable about a single mother struggling to hold on to her family farm and connect with her teenage daughter, whose determination to save the planet endows her and her friends with powers they never knew they had. Created by Tony and Obie Award-winning playwright V (formerly Eve Ensler, O.P.C., In the Body of the World, The Vagina Monologues), Grammy and Golden Globe-nominated songwriter Justin Tranter (Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Imagine Dragons) and songwriter Caroline Pennell (Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez), with contributions by Tony Award-winning performer and songwriter Idina Menzel (Rent, Wicked, Frozen), and directed by Diane Paulus, this concert presentation features Idina Menzel as a parent confronting what it means for her family and her community to survive in a world facing mass extinction.

Subscriptions go on sale in July and single tickets will go on sale at a later date, so stay tuned! I’ll post on-sale dates on social media so make sure you are following!

Disenchanted Starts Production!

Disenchanted Starts Production!

Disney has announced that Disenchanted, a sequel to 2007’s Enchanted, has begun production and Idina Menzel will reprise her role as Nancy Tremaine! Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey and James Marsden are also reprising their original roles.

Of course, the next question is, “will Idina sing?!” In a recent interview, Stephen Schwartz, who is working on the film’s music with composer Alan Menken, revealed that “in Disenchanted she has one big number and part of another one.” As you may recall, Idina and James originally had a duet called “Enchanted” in the first film but it was ultimately cut.

Here’s the film’s premise:

Disenchanted features the much-anticipated return of Giselle, the princess from the fairy tale world of Andalasia banished to Manhattan who found her real Princess Charming in divorce lawyer Robert Philip. 15 years later, Giselle moves to the suburb of Monroeville with Robert and their teenage daughter Morgan, where she must juggle the challenges that come with a new home and discover what happily ever after truly means to her and her new family.

Disenchated will stream exclusively on Disney+ in 2022!
