HIS FIND: We posted yesterday that Patti LuPone will be busy this fall with Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. Idina Menzel (of RENT, Wicked and Glee fame) has been asked to step into LuPone’s place to open the National Symphony Orchestra Pops season, Oct 28-30. Look out for Menzel singing songs from the shows listed above, as well as performing with Marvin Hamlisch, who will also be conducting.

HER FIND: Menzel’s character on Glee, the director of rival show choir Vocal Adrenaline, stepped down at the close of last season. Cheyenne Jackson, most recently seen on Broadway in Xanadu and Finian’s Rainbow, will step in to head up the cutthroat choir. We hear Menzel will reappear (phew!), as Rachel’s biological mother and totally ideal duet partner.
