It’s time to defy gravity once again!
Wicked is celebrating its 15th anniversary and fans are in for a treat. The original stars of the Broadway hit will reunite for a special tribute concert which will be broadcast on NBC.
The concert special commissioned by the network is titled A Very Wicked Halloween: Celebrating 15 Years on Broadway and will bring Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth together again. The two who portrayed Oz residents and onetime friends Elphaba and Glinda in the musical, will be joined by special guests including the already announced Ariana Grande and Pentatonix.
“Wicked is a blockbuster musical playing all over the world and still selling out night after night after 15 years on Broadway, and we’re thrilled to be partnering with Emmy and Tony-winning producer Marc Platt and the entire WICKED team to celebrate the enduring success of this show,” said Doug Vaughan, Executive Vice President, Special Programs and Late Night, NBC Entertainment in a press release. “We’re especially excited to have Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth reunited along with big guest stars in front of an audience — in costume hopefully — to help us celebrate the Halloween season.”
The show will be held at New York’s Marquis Theater and will air on Monday, October 29.
