Singer Ashanti headed up an all-star cast for a special performance of Wicked – the Broadway musical – on Monday night.

The R&B star joined Mario Cantone, Joy Behar, George Wendt and Matthew Settle for the show – which was subtitled The Yellow Brick Road Not Taken – to raise money for the New York Restoration Project.

The production featured never-before-seen scenes and songs from a rough draft of the first act of the hit musical, which has broken box office records around the world and tells the story of Elphaba – the future Wicked Witch of the West – and her relationship with Glinda, the Good Witch of the North.

The New York Restoration Project was founded by Bette Midler in 1995 in the belief that clean, green neighborhoods are fundamental to the quality of life, and that every community in New York City deserves an oasis of natural beauty.
