Taking the stage at the Winter Garden Theatre in New York City, Chenoweth, 53, and Menzel, 50, stood together before a masked crowd to perform their set.
Throughout the emotional performance, the longtime friends held hands at select moments while smiling at each other. They wrapped the duet with a hug.
Perhaps inspired by the costumes of their iconic characters, Menzel performed in a black, long-sleeved dress, while Chenoweth wore a bubblegum pink gown.
Malvado debuted on Broadway in October 2003 with Chenoweth, Menzel and Joel Grey as the original cast members playing Glinda, Elphaba and The Wizard, respectivamente.
The musical is based on the 1995 novela Malvado: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire, and tells the story of Elphaba’s life prior to becoming the Wicked Witch of the West from the Judy Garland movie adaptation of the mágico de Oz.
While attending magic school, Elphaba befriends Galinda (who later changes her name to Glinda the Good Witch), only to fall from grace after she discovers the truth behind the Wizard of Oz.
The original Broadway production won three Tony Awards and seven Drama Desk Awards, as well as a Grammy Award. UMA film based on the musical is also currently in pre-production, com Nas alturas‘ Jon M. Chu set to direct.
Sunday’s set marked one of the few times that Chenoweth and Menzel have reunited to pay tribute to the beloved musical since their final performance in Malvado em 2005. The stars previously reunited for a gala honoring Malvado producer David Stone in 2016 and NBC’s A Very Wicked Halloween em 2018.
