Could Ariana Grande Be The Next Elphaba in Wicked on Broadway?

Could Ariana Grande Be The Next Elphaba in Wicked on Broadway?

Even at 13 Ariana Grande was singing from Stephen Schwartz’s Wicked. In August she confessed she would love to play Elphaba in Wicked on Seth McFarlane’s Carpool Karaoke. The 24 year-old singer stated “One of my dream roles is to play Elphaba. I would do it tomorrow!”

Elphaba is one of the most coveted parts on Broadway with a very select group of actresses having been chosen over its 13-year run.

According to The Sun, the singer, is allegedly “in talks” and is set to replace American actress Jackie Burns, who has taken on the role on and off for six years.

Grande, has already performed on Broadway from Oct 05, 2008 – Jan 04, 2009 in the Jason Robert Brown Musical 13. She also performed with him in LA at the Catalina Bar.

The star also released the song “Popular Song” with Mika in April 2013, an updated cover from the award-winning musical.

If this is officially true, I can see Wicked out grossing The Lion King.
