While Erivo, who most recently portrayed Aretha Franklin and Harriet Tubman, is best known for her work onscreen—as is Grande for her music career—as Variety reminds us, neither star is a stranger to Broadway.

Both stars are true multi-hyphenates, with Grammy-winning pop star Grande getting her start on Broadway in the musical “13” and acting in shows like “Victorious” and Adam McKay’s upcoming film “Don’t Look Up.” Erivo, on the other hand, is near EGOT status — having received a Tony, Grammy and daytime Emmy award for her role as Celie in the 2015-2017 revival of “The Color Purple.”
