Today's Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie look unrecognizable with wild new hairstyles for off-Broadway performance

TODAY hosts Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie have shared photos of themselves looking unrecognizable as they performed in an off-Broadway play.

The co-anchors had donned wild new hairstyles and costumes for the 1940s-set performance.

Hoda, Savannah, and a slew of other NBC personalities got together last month for an off-Broadway performance of Norman Corwin’s Murder in Studio One.

As it was a radio play from the 1940s, everyone had to get into character with period costumes, including funky garb and full-out fun hairstyles.

Al Roker, Craig Melvin, Sheinelle Jones, Jenna Bush Hager, Dylan Dreyer, and a few other NBC correspondents joined Hoda and Savannah for the performance.

While they did a one-night-only performance on April 27, they shared a collection of photos on Wednesday, as well as a lengthy behind-the-scenes video.

The play centered on the mystery surrounding the death of a radio announcer, with the cast playing either investigators or suspects.

The sweet photo of Hoda and Savannah in their costumes comes after the latter got emotional while gushing over her close bond with her co-anchor last week.

Savannah reflected on her friendship with the children's book author, with whom she's been co-hosting the show since 2018, during an event celebrating Today's 70th anniversary.

Savannah – who had shared duties with anchor Matt Lauer prior to the 64-year-old's firing – spoke through tears about Hoda coming in as his replacement.

She recalled: "All I know was in that moment, it felt like I could drown if Hoda hadn’t reached down and grabbed my hand.

"I will always say she saved the show full stop.

"And holding hands with her and being like, 'We’re going to do this together,' meant everything to me.

"I don’t think I had the confidence by myself."

The mom of two's kind words didn't end there as she continued to praise Hoda and the tight relationship they share.

An emotional Savannah said: "It’s wonderful to have a female partnership, but to me, to have this friend and cheerleader and partner, and I really feel that from her, and I hope we share that.

"It’s incredible. I always say, 'I’ll hold my hands and close my eyes and go anywhere with you.' I would."

The gathering took place at the Paley Center for Media in New York City, where Hoda had also recalled a heartwarming experience she had after joining the broadcast four years ago.

The 57-year-old dished about going to a SoulCycle class following her Today show debut, where the group started applauding when she walked into the room.

Hoda was taken aback by the gesture and thought they were celebrating someone's birthday, only to find out they were clapping for her.

"And they said, 'No, what you and Savannah did today, that changed everything.'"
