Known as a show-stopping performer, Menzel takes viewers on a special journey through a diverse repertoire of classic pop and musical theater favorites, including a fresh spin on contemporary songs. The concert is woven together by Menzel’s irresistible appeal, wit and unparalleled vocal prowess.

Recently called the “Streisand of her generation” by The Denver Post, the singer has captivated audiences at sold-out concerts across the country. This show reflects all of her musical and life influences.

Menzel performs a charming duet (and romantic dance) with her husband, Taye Diggs, of Rogers and Hart’s “Where or When,” as well as a touching rendition of “The Way We Were.” There is also a poignant version of “No Day But Today” from "Rent," with the audience singing along on the chorus at the end of the song, and a spectacular version of “Defying Gravity” from "Wicked."

I looked on the PBS schedule and it said that Idina Menzel was to be on tonite (March 8th) at 8pm. It even said it was to be on when I pulled it up on the guide on our TV. I waited all week to watch this. How disappointing when suddenly it's not on. I sure am glad that I didn't invite a group of friends over to watch it with me! When I went in to check on the computer suddenly all the dates were different.

Can't begin to say how disappointed I was.
