Idina Menzel - Broadway Bosses Capitalise On John Travolta's Blunder For New Idina Menzel Musical

The marketing team behind Idina Menzel's new Broadway show have capitalised on John Travolta's botched pronunciation of her name at the Oscars in a new social media campaign.

The Pulp Fiction star caused a frenzy when he stumbled over Menzel's name as he introduced her performance of Let It Go at the Academy Awards on Sunday night (02Mar14).

However, the marketing team for her new musical If/Then are taking advantage of Travolta's mistake with new ads posted on the show's Facebook and Twitter accounts, which have the tagline: "You Know Her Name", along with a photo of Menzel belting out the Oscar-winning tune during the ceremony.

If/Then, which marks Menzel's first time on Broadway since her Tony Award-winning turn in Wicked almost 10 years ago, opens in New York City on Wednesday (05Mar14).
