“Almost wall-to-wall music. It’s like a Broadway musical of an episode with all original songs,” Matt said about the episode.

While talking about Kristen‘s casting, he added, “We all love Marge’s voice [Julie Kavner], but this is the singing voice that’s different, let’s just say.”

So, what is the episode about? Matt told EW, “Marge has amazing memories of being the stage manager of her high school musical, Y2K: The Millennium Bug, and decides to restage it with everyone 20 years later for one last show. But when her old high school nemesis comes to town, she realizes that her high school memories aren’t what she thought they were.”

Kristen also just joined the cast of an exciting new movie!
