WLIW21 Public TV to Air Idina Menzel's BAREFOOT AT THE SYMPHONY, 3/2 & 5
Idina Menzel's performance of the Oscar-nominated "Let It Go" on The Academy Awards telecast isn't the only way to catch the Tony winner on TV that day - WLIW21 New York Public Television will air an encore presentation of IDINA MENZEL LIVE - BAREFOOT AT THE SYMPHONY, Sunday 3/2 at 3 pm. Then on Wednesday, March 5 at 7 pm, the special will air again as Idina's new Broadway musical, "If/Then," opens in previews.
IDINA MENZEL LIVE - BAREFOOT AT THE SYMPHONY was recorded in 2012, conducted by the late legendary composer/conductor Marvin Hamlisch at The Royal Conservatory's Koerner Hall in Toronto, Canada. The concert is a wide ranging journey through the American songbook, and Idina's signature songs, threaded together by personal stories of her career from her start as a wedding singer on Long Island through her role on "Glee." Idina performs a whimsical duet and romantic dance with her (now separated from) husband, Taye Diggs of Rogers and Hart's "Where or When" as well as a touching rendition of Hamlisch's Oscar winner "The Way We Were." Other songs include "No Day But Today" from Rent and "Defying Gravity" from Wicked.
