Idina Menzel plays Elphiba, the other lead in Wicked. She's also on the soundtrack/in the movie version of Rent as Maureen.
Thanks. It's her voice that I was drawn to, moreso than Chenowith's. I'll have to track down the Rent
Believe it or not, most of the Rent soundtrack is available on the movie website...there's a player, and everything...

I never did track down the audio clip, but last night, during a slideshow before Firewall
, there was a picture of Irene and Taye Diggs, saying they had met on the set of Rent
. So I guess they're a couple? I am so
out of it when it comes to celebrity gossip.
They've been married since 2003, and together since they both appeared in the original cast of Rent.
My favorite musical soundtracks are...all of them. Literally, that's all I listen to besides CCM. My favorite tends to be Les Mis and whatever I'm currently directing at my high school, which is, this spring, Godspell.
Here are my top ten of all time:
Les Mis (I own five versions of the soundtrack, and have seen it live five times in three cities)
Titanic The Musical
Man of La Mancha
A Little Night Music
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (DON'T judge it on the movie!!!!)
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Into the Woods
West Side Story
Currently always on:
Godspell, Brigadoon (last spring) and Rent
Musicals, quite simply, are my life.
