Menzel, who won a Tony Award for her portrayal of Elphaba in Wicked (opposite fellow Glee guest Kristin Chenoweth) will appear in ALL nine spring episodes of the show!!!

The actress is married to Private Practice star Taye Diggs.

Another reason to count down the seconds until April 13: Jonathan Groff will appear as the lead male vocalist of Vocal Adrenaline... as well as a potential love interest for Lea Michele's Rachel.
