15 leading ladies have taken flight as Elphaba in Wicked on Broadway. As the show celebrates a decade on Broadway, the witches dish, telling us which Fiyero was the hottest, when technical glitches kept them down, and how on earth they hit those high notes.
Kerry Ellis:  ”It was magical, challenging—heartbreaking at times—but one of the best journeys of my life”
Stephanie J. Block:  ”Playing Elphaba is like being in labor! When you’re going through it, you think, This is terrible! My body hurts! And out comes the gift, and you go, I would do that again in a heartbeat.”
Eden Espinosa: “It’s honestly just a fulfilling role to play and I never got tired of it.”

Kristen Chenoweth Performed A Song About Anthony Weiner Set To ‘Wicked’s’ ‘Popular.’ Wait, What? | Uproxx

If any recent musical should get a movie it’s this. Or maybe ‘In The Heights.’

Kristin Chenoweth and Anna Kendrick sing “For Good” from ‘Wicked’ at Trevor Live.

If Joe Pesci doesn’t at least cameo in ‘Jersey Boys’ I am going to be irate. 

Mr. Ratner was busily conjuring up other future endeavors, including what he called his “dream project”: a film version of the Broadway musical “Wicked.”

Awesome video of the day: An animator imagines what a Disney version of Wicked would look like. Sometimes, we just love the internet.

We’re torn between wanting this and wanting a live-action version.  Can we have both?

I’m sold. Forget live action.

Carry on.

ABC is looking to get back in the event mini-series business withWicked, an eight-hour mini-series produced by Salma Hayek, TVLine's Michael Ausiello reports. The project is not based on the highly-successful Broadway musical but on Gregory McGuire’s bestselling book that spawned it. Despite a long tradition of TV musicals like Cinderella, Annie and The Music Man at ABC that flourished under Susan Lyne as head of TV movies and mini-series and then entertainment president, the genre disappeared from the network under Lyne’s successor Stephen McPherson. In fact, McPherson passed on theWicked mini-series a couple of year ago, a decision that was reversed by new ABC president Paul Lee. Wicked, which is in active development, is being produced by ABC Studios and Hayek and Jose Tamez’s studio-based Ventanarosa Prods. Erik Jendersen (Band of Brothers) is writing the script. For now, there are no plans for Hayek to star. Coincidentally, ABC and ABC Studios are developing a comedy musical series starring Idina Menzel, who originated the role of Elphaba in the Wicked Broadway musical, winning a Tony for the part. The musical, perennial top Broadway grosser that premiered in 2003, is currently being developed as a feature.
