Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs

Taye Diggs (Carousel, Chicago) and Idina Menzel (Wicked, If/Then) met when performing in the original cast of Rent, where Diggs played the corrupt landlord Benny and Menzel originated the role of the flamboyant performing artist Maureen, famously mooning Diggs in the Act One number "La Vie Boheme." The two, who founded the charity A Broader Way, later reunited onstage in The Wild Party and Wicked.
