Random semi-brag, but Jon is a friend of mine from college, and he, along with his whole family, is immensely talented. If you’re a theater fan, you’re going to know who he is.

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.”

Think of all the blow jobs!
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.

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.
