Ariana Grande goes out of the way once again. The 28-year-old is an extraordinary singer, owner of a beauty brand and a future makeup guru. Now that she got the lead role in a musical, she’s back in acting. We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait!
Ariana Grande will play the lead role in the famous musical “Wicked”
A few days ago, using her Instagram, Ariana shared some great news with her fans. The 28-year-old singer will star opposite Cynthia Erivo (“Harriet”, will play the role of the Wicked Witch of the West) in the film adaptation of the Broadway musical “Wicked” directed by Jon M. Chu. The musical is based on the novel by Gregory Maguire “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West”. This book, in turn, was inspired by characters invented by L. Frank Baum in the book “The Wizard of Oz”.
Dear Cynthia, it is such an honor for me that I cannot even comprehend it. I can’t wait to hug you. See you in Oz – Ariana wrote on her Instagram
To date, the musical has been watched by over 60 million people and has been awarded with Grammy Awards and Tony statuettes. The movie doesn’t have an official release date yet, so we’re looking forward to it.
Ariana Grande and her acting career
Ariana Grande began her career as a 15-year-old in the Broadway musical “13”. She became recognizable for her role in the series “Victoria means victory” on the Nickelodeon platform. Ariana has always been a huge fan of Wicked, as shown in her 2011 tweet, in which the star wrote:
I love watching Wicked… amazing production! I realized again how much I wanted to play Glinda at some point in my life! – she wrote on Twitter
