Idina To Star In “Beaches” Remake

idina160706_idina_menzel_warnerbros_05_077-2Tony-winning singer-actress Idina Menzel will star in a film remake of the 1988 Garry Marshall movie Beaches, in the role originated by Bette Midler. Deadline.com reported that the cable TV channel Lifetime has greenlighted the project, which will include performances of two Midler classic songs, β€œWind Beneath My Wings” and β€œThe Glory of Love.” The remake reportedly will include additional songs as well. I suspect some of those new songs might be from the “Beaches” musical written by Iris Rainer Dart and David Austin. The late, beloved Thom Thomas — a good friend of LemonWade — wrote the book (with Dart) for that show.
