She rose to fame for her role as Maureen in the popular Broadway musical RENT, and her career took off when she won a Tony Award for her role as Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, in the smash musical, WICKED. Her voice can be heard as Elsa in Disney's Oscar winning Frozen, the second highest grossing animated films of all time, with more than $1.2 billion in worldwide box office revenue. The film's song "Let It Go," voiced by Menzel, became an instant international phenomenon, winning the Oscar for Best Original Song - where Menzel performed it at the ceremony - and the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media. The track reached #5 on the Billboard Hot 100, making Menzel the first artist with both a Billboard Top 10 hit and a Tony Award for acting.

Menzel returned to her starring role as 'Jodi' in the West Coast premiere of Joshua Harmon's SKINTIGHT in September; the show is a follow up to the Off-Broadway performance that opened to rave reviews at Roundabout Theatre Company.

Menzel was previously seen on Broadway in the original production IF/THEN, for which she earned her third Tony nomination. Menzel also appeared as 'Sheila' in the Encores! production of HAIR and starred as 'Amneris' in Broadway's AIDA. In London, she premiered the Broadway hit WICKED in the West End and received the Theatregoers Choice Award for Best Actress in a Musical.

She also starred in Michael John LaChiusa's musical SEE WHAT I WANNA SEE, directed by Ted Sperling at The Public Theater. Other Off-Broadway credits include the pre-Broadway production of RENT and THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES.
