“Wicked” Girls Both Drop Albums Today

idina36796-0What corporate-music overlords dreamed this up? Both Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth — costars of the original “Wicked” on Broadway — are releasing albums today. I suspect there’s some overlap in the women’s fan bases. Maybe each performer’s label refused to budge on the release date once it realized the coincidence. And maybe, just maybe, all the folks who go online to order up Kristin’s disc (“The Art of Elegance,” heavy on standards) will double-dip with Idina’s (“Idina,” less heavy on standards).
