Glee's Idina Menzel comes to London

Glee star Idina Menzel is giving a one-off performance at the Royal Albert Hall next month.

The Tony Award-winning actress, who plays Rachel Berry's mother Shelby in the Sky1 series, will perform a range of musical theatre and classic pop songs on Thursday, October 6.

Idina, who starred with fellow Glee actress Kristin Chenoweth in the original West End and Broadway productions of Wicked, will perform under the baton of composer Marvin Hamlisch, and will be backed by the 60 piece Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.

The actress has previously starred in the hit musicals Rent, Hair, Enchanted and Aida, and she's due to return to Glee for 12 episodes of the third series, which starts later this month.

As a singer/songwriter, Idina went on tour last year with her solo album, I Stand.

Her last appearance at the Royal Albert Hall was in the concert version of Chess: The Musical.
