A bit unexpected, but I will certainly watch.

^ I feel the same way. Wicked was my first full length musical. Made me the geek I am today. I’ve been overdue to revisit it for a while. But the movie being in development hell and being enticed to newer productions wouldn’t motivate me.

Didn't NBC just do this a couple years ago?

I believe the NBC program was marketed as an anniversary concert, but based on the premise of the PBS program, they sound very similar.

Must be nice to have the money to produce a second WICKED television concert special.

I liked the Halloween/anniversary special. It might still be on my DVR. I can't say what a new concert will add unless they do arrangements in totally different genres, but yes, I will still watch it.

There's no mention of who's doing this though.


A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

I assume Cantone’s going to do Popular like he did at the 5th anniversary concert. Although I can think of a few people in the lineup I’d rather see do it, including Kristin herself.

I hope Jon Chu crashes the show and offers Ariana the role of Elphie

Great line-up, except for Cantone, who I find unbearable. Look forward to watching this, but will probably mute or fast-forward when he's performing.
