Idina Menzel fans rejoice! The Tony-Award winning actress will soon be reprising her role on the FOX musical drama series GLEE according to a tweet posted last night by series star Lea Michele who gushed, "I spy @idinamenzel at #Glee today! So excited to have my mama back!"

Menzel portrayed Rachel's (Michele) biological mother Shelby, who coached a rival Glee club choir during the show's earlier seasons. The character went on to adopt Puck and Quinn's daughter Beth. Now that Rachel has revealed the news that she is pregnant, perhaps Shelby will return to impart some motherly wisdom.

Menzel is best known for her Tony Award-winning performance as 'Elphaba' in the blockbuster Wicked on Broadway, and in her Tony-nominated role as 'Maureen' in Rent. Her other credits include two Drama Desk nominations for her roles in The Wild Party and See What I Wanna See at The Public Theatre.

The actress has also appeared on Broadway in Funny Girl and Off-Broadway in The Vagina Monologues and the 2011 Encores! and the 2004 Actors' Fund Hair concerts. In 2006, she opened and reprised her starring role in Wicked on the West End

Her film credits include starring roles in the Disney romantic fable, Enchanted, Rent and Robert Towne's Ask The Dust. She has also guest starred on FOX's hit television series Glee.

Her new album "Live: Barefoot at the Symphony" is available now at http://www.idinamenzel.com.
