Known as a show-stopping performer, Idina Menzel journeys through a diverse repertoire of classic pop and musical theater favorites, including a fresh spin on contemporary songs. 

Idina Menzel Live: Barefoot at the Symphony, airing on Thursday, June 7 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 1011 and 11), features Tony® Award-winning Broadway star (Rent and Wicked), television actress (Glee), and recording artist Idina Menzel, with an orchestra masterfully led by legendary composer/conductor Marvin Hamlisch, filmed at The Royal Conservatory’s beautiful Koerner Hall in Toronto, Canada. Menzel performs a charming duet with her husband, Taye Diggs, of Rogers and Hart’s “Where or When,” as well as a touching rendition of “The Way We Were.” There is also a poignant version of “No Day But Today” from Rent, with the audience singing along on the chorus at the end of the song, and a spectacular version of “Defying Gravity” from Wicked.
