Ever since Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo were announced as this generation's Glinda and Elphaba in the Wicked musical movie, I have made it my entire personality.

Which is why you could say I was ~defying gravity~ — (I'll never stop) — to find out that Ariana Grande attended Wicked on Broadway last night.

As in, she, herself, in the flesh, rolled up to a Broadway show.

OMG it's Riley Bina. 

And not only did she attend, but she gave a personal shoutout to Brittney Johnson (Glinda) and Lindsay Heather Pearce (Elphaba) in her Instagram story.

<div><p>"You were so very, very brilliant." she wrote. "Truly an honor to see, and hug, and hear, and witness you both. I am weeping!!!!!!!!!!!!! still!!!!!! Words simply do not suffice. Everyone was so remarkable. I feel so deeply thankful to have experienced this tonight.

IDK about Brittney and Lindsay, but if Ariana Grande called me "brilliant" at anything, I would tattoo it to my forehead and y'all would never know peace again.

I'm truthfully impressed with how calm Lindsay's IG story reply was when she reposted Ari's message.

Like, people overuse it all the time but now is ACTUALLY the time to

Ariana Grande attending a showing of a Broadway musical she's seen like 500 times, just to ~get into character~ for her upcoming role is like peak theater kid energy.

And I love. it. 

And I love. it.

Sadly, there's still no official release date yet for the Wicked movie, but at least we all have plenty of time still to obsessively listen to the soundtrack.
