Tony Award-winning actor, singer and songwriter Idina Menzel, star of Broadway's Wicked and the original stage production of Rent, is coming to Tampa for a show on Dec. 1 at the Straz Center, the venue announced today.
Fans of the television's Glee would also recognize Menzel for her role as Shelby Corcoran, Rachel's biological mother.
"I am so thrilled to be back on tour. I am eager to reconnect with my audience, perform my favorite songs and explore some exciting new material," Menzel said in a statement.
The Straz says Menzel's performance will be the centerpiece of the performing art center's 25th Anniversary Gala. Tickets for the concert will go on sale June 22; packages for the gala that include all of the evening's festivities will go on sale at a later date.
