QuaranTune #15: "For Good" from Wicked

A show tune a day keeps the quarantine blues at bay...

Idina Menzel & Kristin Chenoweth in Wicked

It's probably safe to say that thanks to the current pandemic sweeping the globe, our world has been changed For Good. Whilst many of us theatre workers and fans are left wondering how the current issues will affect the future of our industry, it's important to remember and be grateful for the people we have been able to meet through being a small part of this close-knit community.

I would like to personally dedicate today's #QuaranTune to all those I have had the pleasure to work with, to get to know and to befriend throughout my years working for the New York Theatre Guide. You are all in my thoughts and you have all changed me for the better.

In 2016, during the special "Out of Oz: Wicked Studio Sessions" to celebrate the musical phenomenon that is Wicked, the two Broadway superstars that started it all returned to perform the iconic duet "For Good" for the show's passionate followers around the world. Here's Tony Award winners Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth with this beautifully stripped-back rendition that is sure to make you feel "swankifyingly" appreciative of all the friends you've made along the way...

 

Now whatever way our stories end, I know you have rewritten mine by being my friend.
