Idina Menzel, What Was the First Album You Ever Bought?
“It’s so corny. I wish it could be Led Zeppelin or something cool like that. But it was actually ‘A Star Is Born,’ the soundtrack with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. I mean, how hokey is that?
My grandmother took me to see the movie, and it was a great movie. So then it was the first album that I got. And I remember sitting on the floor and listening to it. The album had a really cool picture book inside, too.”
Tony Award-winning singer-actress (and “Glee” cast member) Idina Menzel steps into the spotlight as the featured vocalist with Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops Orchestra at Tanglewood in Lenox at 8:30pm on Friday. Other special guests include trumpeter Doc Severinsen and pianist Michael Chertock. Tix are $21-$115.
