Idina Menzel gained fame as a singer and actress for her role in the insanely popular musical Wicked, which took over Broadway when it took to the stage in 2003. Now with a Tony Award to her credits, Idina Menzel has a flourishing music career and fans that span the world.
Born in Long Island, New York, in 1971, Menzel began performing at an early age. Making money singing at weddings and bar mitzvahs, Menzel was able to make enough money to attend New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, where she learned to finely tune her skills as a singer, actress and overall performer. It didn't take long for Broadway to take notice. She landed the role of Maureen Johnson in the original cast of Rent, her first professional acting job. She received a Tony nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for her role.
Following her final performance in Rent, Menzel returned to the stage in multiple shows, but it wasn't until 2003 that she once again captured everyone's attention. Landing the role of Elphaba in the blockbuster musical Wicked in 2003, she quickly gained critical praise. She received the 2004 Tony Award for Best Leading Actress in a Musical that year. Following up on the success of Wicked, Menzel began to tour in concert, with short runs from 2008-2013. After releasing Holiday Wishes in 2014, Menzel went on a world tour in 2015.
Her success on stage led Idina Menzel to good offstage fortunes as well. She landed roles in films like Kissing Jessica Stein, Rent and Enchanted. In 2013, Menzel co-starred with Kristen Bell in the hit Disney movie, Frozen as Elsa, the Snow Queen. She has also released four studio albums to date: Still I Can't Be Still (1998), Here (2004), I Stand (2008), and Holiday Wishes (2014).
