Guess Who's Returning to Broadway...?!

Y'all, today I got the best news. Actually probably some of the best news in almost 10 years. Tony Award-Winner, Idina Menzel will return to Broadway in almost exactly a year!! If you recall, she has not been on Broadway since her outstanding performance in Wicked as Elphaba (for which she won her Tony), and every theatre fan has been impatiently checking the Broadway news every day since then to see when she would come back.

According to BroadwayWorld.com, she will star in Next to Normal team Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey's musical If/Then. The fact that Kitt and Yorkey are collaborating again would be good news enough, but adding Idina is the icing on the cake. Read the BroadwayWorld.com article for more information on this exciting bit of news.

Ever since Idina left Wicked in 2005, she has not just been sitting around. Between then and now, she has had a baby, guest-starred on Glee, released solo albums, founded A Broader Way, toured with her solo concert internationally, and even more! So you could say she's been a little busy.

So in honor of this, let's take a stroll down memory lane and watch her acceptance speech from the Tony Awards! She's such a mess, it's adorable.
