Idina Menzel premieres music video for 'If/Then' showstopper
Idina Menzel has at least one more surprise for you before the year ends.
The Tony-winning singer—whose year can boast a brand new Broadway musical, a holiday album, an Oscars introduction for the ages, and the vocals behind the biggest Disney hit since, well, ever—is front and center in a new music video that ought to delight fans of her currently running Broadway show, If/Then.
Written specifically for Menzel, the contemporary new musical (about a woman contemplating dual directions in life) culminates in the eleven o’clock power ballad “Always Starting Over,” which Menzel also performed at this year’s Tony Awards. Now that the plot-heavy song is out of the bag, Entertainment Weekly has the exclusive premiere video of Menzel’s full-length showstopper, filmed both on stage at the Richard Rodgers Theatre and in the recording studio.
The If/Then original Broadway cast recording—the highest-charting cast album since 1996’s Rent, which also featured Menzel—is available from MasterWorks Broadway.
