In the winter of 1995, Menzel auditioned for the Broadway bound RENT and won the part of Maureen, an outspoken bi-sexual performance artist. The role earned Menzel her first Tony nomination and the musical went on to win four Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize. In 2003, Menzel originated the role of Elphaba in Wicked, which included her show-stopping performance of the song "Defying Gravity". In 2007, she re-recorded and remixed "Gravity" and the song went on to become a Top 5 hit on the Billboard Dance Chart. Her star turn in Wicked won her a Tony Award and huge critical acclaim.

Other credits include two Drama Desk nominations for her roles in The Wild Party and See What I Wanna See at The Public Theatre. Menzel has also appeared on Broadway in Funny Girl and Off-Broadway in The Vagina Monologues, the 2011 Encores! and the 2004 Actors' Fund Hair concerts, the 2008 Royal Albert Hall concert version of Chess, and more. In 2006, she opened and reprised her starring role in Wicked on the West End. Other film credits include starring roles in the Disney romantic fable, Enchanted, Rent and Robert Towne's Ask The Dust.
