Idina Menzel is Working on Pop Album, Possible New B’way Show In Development

first_img Star Files Idina Menzel is working on a pop album and has a possible new Great White Way tuner in development! Grammy-winning record producer and songwriter Walter Afanasieff, who has long been associated with Mariah Carey, has teamed up on the endeavors with the Broadway supernova.“I’m doing a couple of Idina Menzel projects. Her pop album, which we just finished writing all the songs—12 songs—for,” Afanasieff revealed in a recent interview. He went on to say: “We’re also writing a Broadway musical…for hopefully her next big Broadway show. That’s just been a huge challenge. Being a songwriter is one thing, but writing for Broadway or for film is entirely different. It really pulls you into that, ‘Am I good enough? Do I have what it takes?’ It’s so hard.”Afanasieff is additionally collaborating on Barbra Streisand’s latest venture, so we’re going to be keeping a close eye on him moving forward!Menzel was last seen on Broadway in If/Then and is currently letting it go on a world tour. Afanasieff won the 1999 Grammy in the Record of the Year category for producing Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” and the 2000 Grammy Award for Non-Classical Producer of the Year.
