Wicked fans, get ready for the reprise of a lifetime: Original cast members Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel are slated to reunite for the show’s 15th anniversary this fall.
The pair, who famously played Oz ladies Glinda (Chenoweth) and Elphaba (Menzel) in the original version of the beloved Broadway show, are headlining a special tribute concert on NBC in October. Performers like Ariana Grande and Pentatonix are slated to attend, with other guests to be announced closer to the date.
In a statement, NBC special programs and late night exec Doug Vaughan said the team is “especially excited” to bring Chenoweth and Menzel on board: “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.”
The concert will be filmed at the Marquis Theater in New York. The original team who staged the Tony-winning musical—Marc Platt, Ricky Kirshner, and Glenn Weiss—are slated to produce the show.
Look out for the tribute on Monday, October 29, when it airs on NBC.
