Idina Menzel
Steph Hersh: IDINA MENZEL.... DUHHH
Lisa Rangnow: Um... Idina... She's already a Broadway star, and originated Elsa... Why would you pick anyone else?
Elizabeth Goodz Martin: Idina
Faye Aguda Udan: Idina, of course
Jonathan Gaby: Idina for the win
Camila Barboza: Idina, because she's the best!
Olivia Hammock: Definitely Idina Menzel!!!! She is beautiful and would be awesome- plus, how cool would it be to have the voice of Elsa actually playing Elsa on Broadway?!?
@Jessiefallow: Obviously Idina. She's the only one who can sing it the way it should be sung. @idinamenzel #idinarules
@RBhockey16: Idina Menzel, hands down. Or is that too obvious? ;)

Tony Award winner Idina Menzel, who will return to Broadway this season in the Tom Kitt-Brian Yorkey musical If/Then — which recently concluded its out-of-town engagement in D.C. — voiced Elsa in the film "Frozen," which features her on the hit song "Let It Go," written by Tony Award winner Robert Lopez and his wife, Kristen Anderson-Lopez. Fans of the film are eager to see her repeat her work when the musical makes its way to the stage. Menzel is a Tony Award winner for her performance as Elphaba in Wicked.
