Idina Menzel is making a grand return to Broadway in the 2024-25 season with her passion project, Redwood.

With a book, lyrics, and direction by Tina Landau and music and lyrics by Kate Diaz, Redwood is a collaboration that was conceived by Landau and Menzel.

The story follows a woman who leaves her life behind in search of a spiritual awakening in the forests of Northern California.

Redwood premiered earlier this year at La Jolla Playhouse to much acclaim.

Details about full the Broadway cast, creative team, dates, and theatre will be announced at a later date.

The La Jolla production featured performances from De’Adre Aziza, Nkeki Obi-Melekwe, Michael Park, and Zachary Noah Piser.

For a taste of what’s to come, listen to Menzel sing “Great Escape” from Redwood below:

Menzel, a Tony winner, was last seen on Broadway in If/Then a decade ago.

Tina Landau is set to also direct the Broadway premiere of her musical Floyd Collins at Lincoln Center Theater in 2025.

Stay tuned for more updates on Redwood as it makes its way to Broadway!
