(UK) Tony Award-winning singer/actor Idina Menzel follows the release of her festive album ‘Christmas Wishes’ with the confirmation of her biggest UK and Ireland tour to date which commences next summer. This is Idina’s first set of UK concert dates since her 2012 tour, which included a week long run at London’s Apollo Theatre.
Menzel’s career has traversed stage, film, television, and music. She was most recently heard as Elsa in Disney’s global box office smash ‘Frozen’, in which she sings the film’s Oscar-winning song ‘Let It Go’. After Menzel’s performance of the multi-platinum song at the 86th annual Academy Awards, she made history as the first person with both a Billboard Top 10 hit and a Tony Award for acting.
Menzel earned her first Tony nomination as Maureen in the Pulitzer Prize- winning musical ‘Rent’, and won the award for her performance as Elphaba in ‘Wicked’. Other notable roles include Rachel Berry’s mother, Shelby Corcoran, on the hit television show ‘Glee’ as well as starring opposite Susan Sarandon and Amy Adams in Disney’s ‘Enchanted’. Menzel starred in her own PBS special, ‘Barefoot at the Symphony’, with an accompanying live album of the same name, and her highly successful international concert tour included a sold-out performance at Royal Albert Hall. In addition to cast albums, Menzel’s prolific recording career includes the solo albums ‘I Stand’, ‘Here’ and ‘Still I Can’t Be Still’.
Menzel can currently be seen on Broadway as Elizabeth in the original production ‘If/Then’, for which she earned critical acclaim and her third Tony nomination. She performed ‘Always Starting Over’ from the musical at this year’s Tony Awards.
