Tickets to see Idina Menzel’s new musical, REDWOOD, are on sale now! The show will run from February 13 – March 31, 2024 at the Potiker Theatre in La Jolla, CA. Demand has been so high that the run has already been extended, so get your tickets ASAP!
Idina spoke to Variety about the show back in January when it was announced, but has been pretty tight-lipped about it since. Today she said, “I’m ready to share it with you now. It’s very special to me.”
Idina plays Jesse, a successful businesswoman, mother and wife. She seems to have it all, but inside, her heart is broken. Finding herself at a turning point, Jesse leaves everyone and everything behind, gets in her car and drives… and drives. Thousands of miles later, she hits the ancient forests of Northern California, where a chance meeting and a leap of faith change her life forever. In the presence of the magnificent, towering redwoods, Jesse finds strange and powerful connections, an unexpected sense of community, and a chance at healing.
