AceShowbiz - Ariana Grande and Ethan Slater have been photographed together on their latest outing. The pair posed for a picture backstage at "Gutenberg! The Musical!" during their Broadway date night over the weekend.
The former Nickelodeon star and the Broadway actor spent their Sunday, November 12 by watching the show at the James Earl Jones Theater. In some snaps shared by the show's actor Andrew Rannells, he took a picture backstage with the pair and his co-star Josh Gad.
The four stars were all smiles in the snap as Ariana and Ethan stood apart with Andrew standing between them. Ethan was also sandwiched between Josh and Andrew without Ariana joining them in another photo.
"We had some big fun in Schlimmer yesterday! Spamalot's Ethan Slater AND Michael Urie! Two great guys to eat dreams with. Plus Ariana Grande! It was a perfect Sunday," Andrew wrote in the caption. Returning the favor, he promoted Ethan's musical as adding, "Go see Spamalot!"
In the comments section, fans went wild over Andrew's low-key way of debuting Ariana and Ethan as a couple on Instagram. "Andrew Rannells hard launching Ethan and Ariana was NOT on my bingo card but I'm so here for it," one person reacted to the post.
Another remarked, "the ariana and ethan hard launch." Seemingly not anticipating it, a third admitted, "andrew rannells hard launching ariana and ethan is insane and was certainly not on my 2023 bingo card."
Ariana was previously seen attending the first preview of Ethan's upcoming musical "Spamalot" in New York City. On October 31, the "7 Rings" songstress was seen at the St James Theatre to watch the preview of the Monty Python musical revival with two of her best friends, Elizabeth Gillies and Doug Middlebrook.
While in attendance, the 30-year-old was not hesitant to put on a "Spamalot" paper crown that was handed out to the audience. She was also kind enough to take pictures with fans outside the theatre.
Ariana has been supporting her beau since they reportedly moved in together in New York. "Ethan informed his friends and soon-to-be ex-wife [Lilly Jay] that he's living with Ariana full-time in New York," a source told Us Weekly earlier in October.
The pair first sparked dating rumors in July after filming "Wicked" together in London. In October, Ariana quietly and amicably reached divorce settlement with her ex-husband Dalton Gomez. Meanwhile, Ethan is currently in divorce process with his estranged wife Lilly.
