Idina Menzel & Megan Hilty Sing Wicked's 'For Good' for the Class of 2020

Can you believe that it has been almost 17 years since Wicked first premiered on Broadway?

The show’s Tony-winning original Elphaba, Idina Menzel, has reunited with Megan Hilty, who was the understudy for Glinda while Idina starred in the show, for a performance of “For Good.”

The performance was dedicated to the Class of 2020 amid all of the graduations that are happening via Zoom due to the pandemic.

“To the class of 2020; the world needs you now more than ever 💚. We hope you now help make a change, for good. Congratulations to you all,” Megan captioned the video on her Instagram account.

Megan took over the role of Glinda on Broadway on May 31, 2005 and she played the role for a full year in New York City. She then reprised the part in productions around the country.

Here’s the latest update on the upcoming Wicked movie.

'Smash' Cast to Reunite Virtually for 'Bombshell' Concert Live Stream Event!

The cast of the beloved NBC musical series Smash will be reuniting next week for the one-night-only streaming event, Bombshell in Concert.

Back in 2015, the cast of the series, including Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty, reunited for a one-night-only live performance of Bombshell, the show within the show about the life of Marilyn Monroe.

The evening will be introduced by Oscar winner Renee Zellweger and, during intermission, Difficult People actress Julie Klausner will host a live, virtual reunion with the show’s original cast members including: Christian Borle, Jaime Cepero, Will Chase, Brian d’Arcy James, Jack Davenport, Ann Harada, Megan Hilty, Jeremy Jordan, Katharine McPhee, Andy Mientus, Debra Messing, Leslie Odom Jr., Krysta Rodriguez, and Wesley Taylor.

Bob Greenblatt, one of the producers of the event, said, “I speak for Neil Meron and our wonderful creative team of Marc Shaiman, Scott Wittman and Joshua Bergasse when I say that we are thrilled to help raise more money for The Actors Fund and all their good work during this difficult time. Smash and Bombshell In Concert were thrilling experiences for us, and we are overjoyed that fans everywhere will get to finally see these amazing performances. We’re grateful to everyone at The Actors Fund and PEOPLE for their love of the performing arts.”

The special event will stream on Wednesday, May 20 at 8pm ET on People.com, PeopleTV, and People‘s social platforms.

Katharine McPhee Reveals Who She Thinks Should Have Played Marilyn on 'Smash'

Katharine McPhee live-tweeted the season one finale of Smash on Friday night (March 27) and she revealed who she thinks should have played Marilyn Monroe in the musical Bombshell!

The NBC series followed the making of a new Broadway musical about the iconic actress and two actresses were competing for the role – Karen, a newcomer played by Kat, and Ivy, a Broadway veteran played by Megan Hilty.

At the end of season one, Karen has earned the role of Marilyn and stars in the out-of-town production of Bombshell. In the second season though, Karen quits the show to star in the musical Hit List and Ivy ends up bringing the show to Broadway. Ivy wins the Tony Award for Best Actress.

So, who does Kat think should’ve played the role?

“if you want my HONEST opinion- love you Karen, but Ivy probably should’ve been Marilyn. #SmashLives,” Kat tweeted.
