Idina Menzel has apparently announced that she is reviving her role as Maureen in rent in London next year! Also, this was mentioned earlier but i saw Nightmare BC tonight and what an amazing musical it would be!! What do you think??

Well it would be fabulous if it were true but I would never trust info like this until it is released properly. I mean has a London production of Rent even been announced yet. Im not doubting your friend just saying i need to see proper proof.

Does anyone really think this could be true? I mean...she's way too old for the part, I can't imagine her wanting to revisit it after the movie didn't do too well, and also imagine how much they'd have to pay her. Could a small scale revival (which isn't a sure success) afford her? I dunno...

There issnt a chance this will happen

Idina meanzel is in talks to star in a new musical from may and the rent revival in london is pegged for feb/mar

Shes also getting to old to play that role and joshy is right that they wouldnt pay them prices for her.

Hang on there people...why are you calling it a "RENT: Revival". What's being revived about the show, besides her coming into the show again. The show hasn't closed in London before or even been there, has it? And it hasn't closed in NY either.

There have been two previous productions in the West End - in 1998 at the Shaftesbury Theatre and in 2001 at the Prince of Wales Theatre, following a UK tour, starring Damien Flood as Roger, Adam Rickitt as Mark and the amazing Debbie Kurup as Mimi.

Three if you count the short lived return to the Prince Of Wales in 2003. It only lasted a few weeks though. Mainly the same cast as the 2001 production.

The production of RENT is slated for a March opening at The Trafalgar Studios. Not confirmed yet. The production will be a new, more simplistic, take on the show and done much more on a small scale

Idina Menzel will not star.

Prior to RENT possibly coming back, the show made its UK debut at The Shaftesbury Theatre in 1998 before closing in 2000 just short of a two year; A UK Tour was launched and the show came into The Prince of Wales of the Xmas period twice in 2002/3
