Idina Menzel and her Wicked costar Norbert Leo Butz delighted fans while raising money for Broadway.

The pair starred as Elphaba and Fiyero, respectively, to packed audiences back in 2003, along with Kristin Chenoweth. In a video posted on her Instagram, Menzel, 45, and Butz, 50, sang a rendition of “As Long As You’re Mine,” in which their two characters pledge their love to each other, at a benefit event last week.

“15 years since we performed together in #Wicked. Thank you @norbert_leo_butz for supporting @abroaderway! #ElphabaAndFiyero,” Menzel wrote.

The singer and actress won the 2004 Tony Award for best actress in a musical for her portrayal of the tormented yet passionate Elphaba, whose powers scare those around her.

Menzel, who had previously starred in Rent, became a Broadway sensation for riveting performances in “Defying Gravity” and “No One Mourns the Wicked.”

Butz also took to Instagram to commemorate the occasion, writing, “Karaoke benefit tonight with the gorgeous #julianurney and @idinamenzel my sweet green #elphaba.”
