Idina Menzel on Starring in FROZEN Musical on Broadway: 'Yes! Absolutely!'
Idina Menzel, currently starring in the new Broadway musical 'If/Then' was among the honorees at this year's Variety's Power of Women luncheon, held in New York City on Friday. The talented actress was chosen for her charitable work with her A Broaderway Foundation.
At the event, Menzel was asked if she would consider starring in the upcoming Broadway adaptation of the hit film FROZEN, in which he lends her voice to Princess 'Elsa' and belts out the Oscar-winning song 'Let It Go.'
"Yes! Sure! Absolutely!" Menzel told Cosmopolitan.com of recreating the role live on stage. She adds, "It was such a dream of mine to be in the Disney family and become an animated queen."
In addition to the 'Wicked' star, actress and singer Kristen Bell has also expressed interest in playing the part of Elsa's younger sister, Anna, whom she voices in the film.
