|Idina Menzel as Elizabeth in If/Then|
This morning, the nominations for the 2014 Tony Awards were announced. While there is much confusion and upset about If/Then's lack of a nomination for Best Musical, the performers that were nominated certainly deserved their nods. Among them are original Wicked star Idina Menzel for her performance as Elizabeth in If/Then and Andy Karl for his performance in Rocky. Menzel was nominated for a Tony Award in 1996 for Rent. She became a Tony Award winner in 2005 for Wicked. This is Andy Karl's first Tony nod. Congratulations to both of these mega talented performers!
