    Ariana Grande Attending The "Wicked" Broadway Show To Prep For Her Movie Role Is The Ultimate Theater Kid Move


    Good morning, theater kids, Broadway nerds, and Ariana Grande fans.

    Ever since Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo were announced as this generation's Glinda and Elphaba in the Wicked musical movie, I have made it my entire personality.

    It’s not that the Wicked movie is my whole personality but that my whole personality has been preparing for the Wicked movie

    Which is why you could say I was ~defying gravity~ — (I'll never stop) — to find out that Ariana Grande attended Wicked on Broadway last night.

    As in, she, herself, in the flesh, rolled up to a Broadway show.

    And not only did she attend, but she gave a personal shoutout to Brittney Johnson (Glinda) and Lindsay Heather Pearce (Elphaba) in her Instagram story.

    IDK about Brittney and Lindsay, but if Ariana Grande called me "brilliant" at anything, I would tattoo it to my forehead and y'all would never know peace again.

    I'm truthfully impressed with how calm Lindsay's IG story reply was when she reposted Ari's message.

    Ariana Grande attending a showing of a Broadway musical she's seen like 500 times, just to ~get into character~ for her upcoming role is like peak theater kid energy.

    Sadly, there's still no official release date yet for the Wicked movie, but at least we all have plenty of time still to obsessively listen to the soundtrack.
