You won’t want to miss the tour from the multi-talented artist, who The Denver Post calls “the Streisand of her generation.”

The setlist for the excursion will feature songs from her new album, idina, and other selections from her catalog, along with classic pop and musical theatre favorites.

Perhaps she’ll include a song from her latest project – a starring role as CC in a remake of the film “Beaches.” The contemporary version airs on Lifetime Jan. 21 at 8 p.m. Menzel is featured on the Beaches EP, which includes songs from the 1988 film and new tracks recorded for the remake.

Fans will be hoping she also throws in a song or two from her previous roles as Elsa in “Frozen,” Elphaba from “Wicked” or Maureen Johnson in “Rent.”
