"To stand there opposite Kristin, whom I have so much love and respect for, and to be able to sing this incredibly written duet, it was just such an honor — a moment that you really try not to take for granted," Menzel explained.
"That was my favorite moment, [and] it's actually my favorite song in the show, too," said Chenoweth. "I think it's a moment in friendship… There are the themes of forgiveness and true love. And, that's [the] story that people loved so much — a love story between two women."
As for a return to Oz for Wicked's tenth birthday, Chenoweth will be doing film work in Los Angeles, and Menzel will be in the midst of preparing for the D.C. engagement of the Broadway-bound If/Then, produced by Wicked producer David Stone.
Chenoweth carries on with high hopes: "I said today to [Wicked company manager] Susan Sampliner, 'What will we be doing for its 20th anniversary? What will be going on in our lives then?'"
