Bravo to this inspiring and intimate backstage story about Idina Menzel, who was born to be a star. In the documentary Idina Menzel: Which Way to the Stage?, her dad Stuart believes that when his daughter "came out the womb" she was "going to be famous." And as a toddler, Menzel "always sang," says her mom Helene. "When I was a little girl, I loved musical theater," remembers Menzel. "I did listen to cast albums when I was a little kid, and my parents did bring me to shows. That's all part of me."

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
