NEW YORK (AP) - Idina Menzel, who won a Tony Award as the green witch in "Wicked," is planning a return to Broadway.
Producers of a new musical by the creators of the Pulitzer Prize-winning "Next to Normal" announced Thursday that Menzel will star in their "I/Then," a Broadway-bound musical that first takes a stop this fall in Washington, D.C.
Tom Kitt will supply the music, Brian Yorkey will write the story and lyrics, and Michael Greif will direct. The show will make its world premiere this November at the National Theatre in Washington, D.C., and then go on to open on Broadway in March 2014.
