Idina Menzel Will Return to Broadway in REDWOOD!

Idina Menzel is heading back to Broadway early next year in her brand new musical, REDWOOD! The show is a “transportive new musical about one woman’s journey into the precious and precarious world of the redwood forest”. As we know, the show is extra special because Idina co-conceived it alongside writer & director Tina Landau and she’s credited with “additional contributions”.

“I’m so thrilled to be returning to Broadway, and the fact that I get to do it with Redwood, a musical that means so much to me, makes it even more special. This show has lived in my bones for fifteen years, from the very first time Tina and I discussed working together. Finally getting to do it on Broadway is really a dream come true.” – Idina Menzel

The score features music by Kate Diaz and lyrics by Tina & Kate. Per the New York Times, the production will be produced by Eva Price (“& Juliet”), Caroline Kaplan, a film producer, and Loudmouth Media (a company founded by Idina) and is being capitalized for up to $16 million.

A theater and additional casting have not been announced yet, so stay tuned. You can sign up for ticket notifications at 

I was lucky enough to see the sold out run in La Jolla, CA and I’m so excited to see it on Broadway! Also, if you’re seeing Idina on tour this Summer, she said she will be singing songs from the show!
