A Very Wicked Halloween: Celebrating 15 Years on Broadway
Wicked has announced "A Very Wicked Halloween: Celebrating 15 Years on Broadway"—a concert featuring performances by the current Broadway cast (Jessica Vosk & Amanda Jane Cooper), Idina Menzel, Kristin Chenoweth, Ariana Grande, Pentatonix, and others. It'll be televised at 10 PM EST on October 29.

Not to be a buzzkill, but I'm genuinely intrigued as to why the producers would even tie Halloween into this? It feels like it was just a spur of the moment naming decision. Very tacky and tasteless IMO. The show has nothing to do with Halloween, so why brand it as such?

Well, it kind of does. It does have two witches! And it opened the night before Halloween, so I personally think it ties together. JMHO Smile

It makes very happy to see Idina and Kristin reunite for certain events over the past five years. I was glad to see them do a photo-shoot for Entertainment Weekly for the 10th anniversary. Then, they performed "For Good" on that video for the first time together since Kristin's last show. Now they are going to be doing this TV special.

Looks like Adam Lambert will be joining the lineup. I definitely wish he would rejoin the show at some point!

According to an Instagram post, Ariana Grande will be singing “The Wizard and I” for this concert. As expected, I think. Haha.

Carrie St. Louis, Emily Mechler, Donna Vivino, Caroline Bowman, and Jennifer Dinoia are other confirmed singers for the special. Julia Murney, Dee Roscioli and Jackie Burns are speculated/unconfirmed. I think/hope that Eden Espinosa and Shoshana Bean will be there too.

Oh YAY, I'm so happt that alum are there too. I was thinking it would just be Idina/Kristin and Jessica/Amanda, and maybe some of the other current cast tops. Love that they are all going to be there! Hope for more! <3
