Why See Kristin Chenoweth?
The Inimitable Kristen Chenoweth is Queen of the Biz
Emmy and Tony Award winner and Oklahoma Hall of Fame inductee Kristin Chenoweth effortlessly transitions between stage, television and film with the captivating grace that only she can project. She will be following up her Tony-nominated spell in On The Twentieth Century with a brand-new tour and will be hitting the Academy of Music in Philadelphia, PA, Closed June 1, 2012
The diminutive actress first turned heads on Broadway since the Spring of 1997, appearing in You're A Good Man Charlie Brown (her Tony-winning performance) amongst other big shows. This year she has been nominated for a Tony Award for her starring role in On the Twentieth Century opposite Peter Gallagher, and will also be hosting the ceremony with Alan Cumming.
After taking a break to pursue her singing and TV career, Ms. Chenoweth really cemented her stardom in the theatre world by returning to Broadway as the first ever Glinda in the Tony-winning musical Wicked. She was nominated for the Best Leading Actress in a Musical Tony Award in the 2004 ceremony, but lost to her co-star Idina Menzel who played Elphaba.
She also received rave reviews while starring in the ABC series Pushing Daisies, where she received an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series and more recently sang up a storm on the hit TV show Glee. Watch out for her name on the silver screen too, as she'll be featuring in upcoming indie movie Hard Sell.
Performance date: 1 June 2012
