After success with an homage to the Broadway musical Chicago in 2003, the hit daytime soap opera "Passions" is now set to head down the yellow brick road with a musical episode borrowing from Broadway's Wicked.
According to Soaps.com, recent Drowsy Chaperone star Georgia Engel will play the good witch Esmeralda, an old schoolmate and rival of "Passions" character Tabitha Lenox, the 300-year-old witch who wreaks havoc in the town of Harmony.
An official air-date for the Wicked-themed episode has not been announced. "Passions" airs on NBC weekdays at 2 PM ET. Check local listings.
