Idina Menzel returning to Broadway

Glee star Idina Menzel is heading back to Broadway for the first time in 10 years to star in a new musical.

The theater legend is set to tread the boards in New York's famed theater district for the first time since her Tony Award winning turn in Wicked by starring in a new production called If/Then.

The show, about a woman who moves to New York ahead of her 40th birthday, comes from the team behind the Pulitzer Prize-winning Next to Normal, and will debut in Washington, D.C in the autumn (13) before hitting Broadway in 2014.

Menzel, who has focused on TV and film projects in recent years, says, "I've experienced the beauty of working on original musicals and was eager to find a project where the material was exciting and new and spoke to my heart. I'm thrilled to have finally found it - an original musical with a complex, flawed, and surprising central character that I cannot wait to bring to life onstage."
