Despite Ariana‘s amazing vocal chops, she revealed that they won’t be adding any new songs to the production just for her.

“I don’t want to change anything about the role or how she develop. I just love Penny and it’s just such a great honor to play her. I don’t want any sort of special icing or parts. This is just really great and I’m so happy,” Ariana explained.

Executive producer Neil Meron added, “I think one of the thrills is Ariana wanted to play the part as written. She loved the fact that she kind of held off those powerful pipes until the very end.”
