It’s like a dream — and also you have been there! And also you have been there! Kristin Chenoweth was there! Idina Menzel was there! And Ariana Grande, and the Pentatonix, and Ben Platt’s dad, and the man who bought engaged on the Emmy’s have been all there!
“Depraved,” the record-smashing, elegant, blockbuster Broadway musical, will take to the diminutive silver display screen on October, 29 with “A Very Wicked Halloween: Celebrating 15 Years on Broadway.” Rejoicing in 1.5 many years of performing eight instances every week on Broadway, the musical’s authentic stars, present forged, and a coterie of pop performers will give a “live performance tribute occasion” the Monday earlier than Halloween on NBC.

Platt might be joined by Richard Kirshner (one other one in every of ours,) and the entire emerald-colored shebang might be co-produced and directed by Glenn Weiss.

Just like the Wizard’s credentials, we’ll consider it once we see it.
And but! A efficiency that may reunite Chenoweth and Menzel with their most vital work is about for Halloweekend. What’s this sense, so sudden and new (particularly within the barren hellhole that’s the week of September 2018)? Oh, sure — it’s ecstasy.
