Idina Menzel to Star in Workshop of Alanis Morissette's Musical

Idina Menzel is set to star in a workshop presentation of the upcoming musical Jagged Little Pill, featuring the music of Alanis Morissette.

The show will have its world premiere in May 2018 at the American Repertory Theater in Massachusetts, but Idina is not expected to appear in that incarnation of the show, according to Playbill.

Idina is currently committed to star in the Off-Broadway production of the play Skintight next summer.

While Idina won’t do the out-of-town production of Jagged Little Pill, it’s still possible that she will do the musical when it hits Broadway.

Matthew Morrison was involved with the original workshops of the musical Finding Neverland, but wasn’t able to do the A.R.T. production as he was filming Glee. He later starred in the musical when it hit Broadway though.

Idina Menzel Is Returning to New York Stage in 'Skintight'!

Idina Menzel is coming back to New York City in the upcoming off-Broadway show Skintight.

The 45-year-old Tony Award winning star will play the role of Jodi Isaac in the world premiere of the play, beginning May 31, 2018 with an official opening June 21, 2018.

Here’s a synopsis: Reeling from her ex-husband’s engagement to a much younger woman, Jodi Isaac (Menzel) turns to her famous fashion-designer dad for support. Instead, she finds him wrapped up in his West Village townhouse with Trey. Who’s 20. And not necessarily gay. But probably an adult film star. At least, according to Jodi’s son. Who’s also 20. And definitely gay. Skintight assays the nature of love, the power of attraction, and the ways in which a superficial culture persists in teaching its children that all that matters is what’s on the inside.

The show will be performed at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre.

Idina Menzel Apologizes for Joke About Slitting Her Wrists

Idina Menzel has issued an apology after she received backlash for a comment she made that included a joke about suicide.

The Beaches actress was giving an interview in which she talked about the depressing music she likes to listen to.

“You’d think because I’m a singer I listen to a lot of music, which I do, but there’s certain music that I think is so devastatingly beautiful that it’s too painful to listen to sometimes,” she said. “There’s this Meshell Ndegeocello album Bitter that I just can’t listen to. It’s so good. It makes me just want to slit my wrists.”

VIDEO: Idina Menzel's Son Walker Uses Her 'Frozen' Status To Up His Game!

Idina Menzel has admitted that her 7-year-old son Walker isn’t the biggest fan Frozen, but he sure doesn’t have a problem with it when it comes to the young ladies.

“He’s seen it [Frozen] maybe twice, he hates it. It’s princessy and it’s mommy singing so it means that she has to work and go sing the stupid song, and it takes me away from him,” the 45-year-old actress told Stephen Colbert while appearing on The Late Show on Wednesday evening (January 18) in New York City.

“The only time he really liked was when I was volunteering at his kindergarten class last year and we were doing arts and crafts. He started talking to one of the little girls and the girl was looking at me so he goes, ‘do you want my mom’s autograph, she’s Elsa’,” Idina added. “That’s like his game, he’s got game.”

That same evening, Idina rocked a polka dot suit to attend a special screening of her upcoming Lifetime remake of Beaches held at the AMC Empire 25 Theater with her little co-star Grace Capeless.
