‘Drama Queen’ Out Now!!

The wait is finally over! Idina Menzel’s new album, ‘Drama Queen’, is out now!! On ‘Drama Queen’, Idina worked alongside global hitmakers, Nile Rodgers, Jake Shears, Justin Tranter, Sir Nolan, Simon Wilcox, Laura Veltz, Jim Eliot, Maty Noyes, Mitch Allan, Lindy Robbins, Chantry Johnson, Michelle Zarlenga, and more creating a body of work that is a departure from what she’s put out in the past.

When you put your heart and soul into a project and it comes to fruition. When you make the music you want to make. With the people you’ve always wanted to work with. When you get to say thank you to everyone for supporting your creative choices. That’s a really good day. – Idina Menzel

‘You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitvah’ Clip!

Here’s a first look at Idina Menzel’s upcoming movie, ‘You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah’! The movie, which is based on the popular YA novel, is about BFFs Stacy and Lydia who are both planning epic bat mitzvahs. But it all unravels when a popular boy — and middle school drama — threaten to ruin everything. The movie also stars Adam Sandler, Sadie Sandler and Sunny Sandler. Idina plays Adam’s wife.

Due to the SAG-AFTRA strike, Idina can’t promote the movie or post about it on social media. They aren’t calling for boycotts, however, so stream it August 25 on Netflix!

Here’s the official trailer!
