Ariana Grande enjoyed some theater in New York Sunday with her boyfriend Ethan Slater.
The 30-year-old singer and beau Slater, 31, who will not be returning to the UK to resume work on Wicked anytime soon, took in a showing of Guttenberg! The Musical.
Afterwards, the new couple posed for photos backstage with Josh Gad and Andrew Rannells, who were still in their costumes.
Ariana looked relaxed in a large gray sweater and slacks. She carried a large coat.
Her blonde hair was pulled back into a bun and she wore natural looking makeup.

Ethan was casual in a striped sweater and jeans.
‘We had some big fun in Schlimmer yesterday!’ Andrew wrote on social media, referring to the fictional German town where Guttenberg! The Musical takes place.
‘Spamalot’s Ethan Slater AND Michael Urie!’ he said, continued, ‘Two great guys to eat dreams with,’ he wrote referring to one of the songs from the show. ‘Plus Ariana Grande! It was a perfect Sunday. Go see Spamalot!’
Ethan and Michael have been in previews for the comic musical, which officially opens Wednesday at the St. James Theater.
Ethan plays Prince Herbert and the Shrinking actor stars as Brave Sir Robin in the show based on the Monty Python film of the same name.
Josh shared the same photos in his Instagram Stories, writing, Ethan Slater, thank you for killing it today and for eating dreams with us @gutenbergbway.’
On the photo with Ariana, he penned, ‘Thank you @arianagrande and @ethanslater for joining us today @gutenbergbway, and thank you Ethan for taking time out of your crazy schedule to “produce” our show.

She and Ethan spent time in New York during the actors strike, which ended last week after the union and Hollywood studios agreed on a new contract.
The couple started out as friends co-starring in the big screen version of the Tony winning play Wicked, but fell in love.
Ariana’s divorce from ex Dalton Gomez was finalized in October, and Ethan is still working through his split with estranged wife Lilly Jay.
Previews: Ethan plays Prince Herbert in Spamalot, based on the Monty Python film of the same name. The show is currently in previews, but will celebrate its opening night Wednesday November 16
Sir: Michael stars as Brave Sir Robin in the musical which is scheduled to run at the St. James Theater through April 28
Both Andrew and Josh earned Tony nominations for their work on The Book of Mormon musical in 2011.
They paired up again when the opportunity to work in Gutenberg! The Musical came around as two earnest but clueless theatre composers presenting a highly inaccurate play about the life of Johannes Gutenberg, who introduced letterpress printing in Europe, to potential investors.
Gutenberg! The Musical’s website indicates that shows will run through January 28.
Spamalot’s run is scheduled to go until April 28.
