If you missed Idina co-hosting Wicked in Concert on PBS, it is now available for free streaming on PBS.org! Idina co-hosted the concert with Kristin Chenoweth and though they performed ‘For Good’, it was their ‘Out of Oz’ performance from 2016. The concert featured re-imagined musical arrangements performed by artists like Ben Platt, Amber Riley, Alex Newell, Ariana DeBose, Jennifer Nettles, Sara Bareilles and more.

I’ve added a couple of photos to the gallery:

Cinderella – Official Trailer

Cinderella – Official Trailer

The official trailer for Cinderella has premiered! Watch above to get a few peeks of Idina in the role of the Stepmother! In this updated take on the classic movie, she is not going to be the evil Stepmother, so we’ll see how that plays out! You can also see the official poster below and in the gallery!

Cinderella is a musically-driven bold new take on the traditional story you grew up with. Our heroine (Camila Cabello) is an ambitious young woman whose dreams are bigger than the world will allow, but with the help of her Fab G (Billy Porter), she is able to persevere and make her dreams come true.

Written for the screen and directed by Kay Cannon with covers of songs written by some of the top-selling musical artists of all time, Cinderella has an all-star cast that includes Idina Menzel, Minnie Driver, Nicholas Galitzine, with Billy Porter and Pierce Brosnan.

Cinderella premieres on Amazon Prime on September 3!

Cinderella – Official Soundtrack Tracklist!

The tracklist for Cinderella’s soundtrack has been released! Idina sings in five musical numbers including two solos! The majority of songs are covers, however Idina and Laura Veltz wrote “Dream Girl”. Getting to include her own original music was one of the reasons Idina signed onto the project. In case you don’t know, Idina will play the Stepmother in the film, which is described as a musically-driven bold new take on the traditional story you grew up with.
