Idina Menzel denied entry into her rehearsal

The Tony Award-winning Broadway star is in the U.K. for a solo concert tour, which kicks off on Monday (08Oct12) with seven consecutive performances scheduled at the Apollo Theater in the British capital.

But the Glee actress admits she had a "very humbling" start to her residency after venue staff failed to recognize her and refused to let her in the building.

She writes, "Tried getting into rehearsal at the Apollo... My face everywhere outside but no one would let me in. Knocked for a while. Humbling. Very humbling."
