Usually it takes years to establish a reputation on Broadway, but Tony Award–winning vocalist Idina Menzel took a faster route. She instantly solidified her legendary status with her professional theater debut as Maureen in the original run of Rent, and since then her star has only risen, adding roles as Elphaba in Wicked and Rachel's biological mother on Glee to her list of accomplishments. Two seasons ago, she first appeared with The Philadelphia Orchestra, inspiring standing ovations without electrifying the audience's seats by singing soulful, expressive renditions of such lasting Broadway ballads as “Tomorrow” and “Heaven Help My Heart.” Besides these and other character-defining songs, Menzel is known to bust out a pop-operatic take of modern hits such as “Poker Face” and “Roxanne.” Between tunes––and sometimes in the middle of them––Menzel can't help but interrupt to tell a story, such as how she landed her role on Glee, with humor and glass-half-full attitude.

The Mann Center for the Performing Arts dates back to 1935, when it opened as an outdoor venue for The Philadelphia Orchestra's summer concerts. At its current location since 1976, the massive auditorium seats more than 8,000 beneath its canopy roof, with room for thousands more to lounge on the surrounding lawn or jetpack through the surrounding air.

The Mann Center

The Mann Center is a prepossessing structure from anywhere you sit in the semi-covered amphitheater—all huge, rough slabs of timber that evoke the setting for a barn dance held by elegant giants. Even the lawn section isn’t an ordinary lawn: from the top of the steep hill where the theater perches, audiences can see not only the performers lighting up the stage below but also the canopy of trees in surrounding Fairmount Park and the city skyline just beyond.
