A Peek At Idina Menzel's Current Concert Setlist

A Peek At Idina Menzel's Current Concert SetlistTony Award-winning Broadway and GLEE star Idina Menzel is currently embarking on a criss-cross-countries tour, playing many acclaimed venues throughout not only North America but also some select dates overseas, as well, and fans now can get a glimpse at her setlist at a recent wildly well-received gig.

While performing in Arizona last week, Menzel was met with rave reviews and enthusiastic audiences - among them, The Reporter writer Randy Cordova who generously shared the setlist from that night's show.

The song-list for Menzel's oft-sold-out symphony shows expectedly includes some standards from her acclaimed past musical theatre triumphs, including WICKED and RENT tunes, as well as some live staples fans have come to enjoy, such as her imaginative pairing of Cole Porter's "Love For Sale" and The Police's "Roxanne".

Additionally, Menzel tributes her work with legendary composer/conductor Marvin Hamlisch with material from A CHORUS LINE.

Also, she encores with WEST SIDE STORY's "Somewhere" and sings a FUNNY GIRL tune to kick things off, too.

Of special note, Menzel has been performing a special song from her upcoming Broadway return, IF/THEN by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey - the stirring and emotional "You Learn To Live Without".

The full set-list from Idina Menzel's recent Arizona symphony show is as follows:

"Over the Rainbow"/"The Wizard and I" from THE WIZARD OF OZ/WICKED

"Don't Rain on My Parade" from FUNNY GIRL

"I Stand"

"Heart on My Sleeve"

"Both Sides Now"

"Love for Sale"/"Roxanne"

"At the Ballet" from A CHORUS LINE

"What I Did for Love" from A CHORUS LINE

"God Save My Soul"

"I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For"/"In Your Eyes"

"Take Me or Leave Me" from RENT

"No Day But Today" from RENT

"For Good" from WICKED

"Defying Gravity" from WICKED

"You Learn to Live Without" from IF/THEN
