Idina Menzel

Idina Menzel who played Elphaba (the green witch) in the original Broadway cast of "Wicked" and who also starred on Broadway and on screen in RENT is in town tonight. The Producers at Gary Musick were all invited to see her and so we're all going. I really love her voice and have for a long time. I am interested to see what the show will be like.

Meanwhile, rehearsals are going well. This cast is great and seem to have wonderful working relationship with each other.
Last night Sheryl and I sang at Otter Creek with Bobby Colvert and some of his blue grass friends (who were all amazing!). It was interesting being back there and in that room. But, it was geat seeing faces and hugging friends we hadn't seen in a while.
ZOE clips....I promise, they're coming. I just have to have time enough to load them!

I love Idina's voice as well & you forgot to mention that she's also in the movie 'Enchanted', which I loved, although 'Wicked' is still my favorite musical of all time. Seeing it in Chicago was one of the highlights of my life

My daughter, Lucy, is so jealous that you are meeting her. Lucy loves her voice. We know the Wicked songs at our house. So good. You are so lucky.

I know you have no idea who I am but when I saw on your post that you saw Wicked in Chicago I wondered if you might answer some questions for me. We are thinking about a trip to Chicago with our kids right after Christmas and want so see the show and have a mini vacation. Would love some clues on anything must see..Totally understand if you can't but my email is Thanks! Also Brandon...Tod, Hutton , Reagan and I are going to see SCC tomorrow night in concert. You know how my heart is feeling about that family right now and I am looking so forward to worshiping with them and I feel sure that God is going to use him mightily in giving a little more healing to my family. Love keeping up with you through the blog. Bailey is living in Brazil right now and keeping a blog..I love it!
