Kristin Chenoweth's American Songbook Concert to Be Taped for PBS
In a recent interview with Deseret News, Broadway favorite Chenoweth revealed that her February 15 American Songbook concert will be taped for PBS. She told DN: "The show will be very, very simple but will celebrate the classic American songs we know and love. I'm very honored to do the show for PBS. I'm glad there still is a PBS, if I can say that. PBS gives performers the opportunity to do things that they aren't always able to do and share this with the audience." There has been no word yet on an airdate for the concert.

Best known for her starring role as Glinda the Good Witch in Broadway's Wicked, the petite Chenoweth has become a prolific star on the stage and screen. Her television roles have ranged from Glee and Pushing Daisies to The West Wing and GCB. Her onstage roles have ranged from a Tony-winning performance in You're A Good Man Charlie Brown to Promises, Promises; and her film appearances span the cinematographic spectrum, from Bewitched to Running with Scissors.
As a solo performer, she sold out Carnegie Hall as well as the Metropolitan Opera House - and she's collaborated with symphonies around the country. Outside the spotlight, she's recorded four albums and written a candid, uplifting book, "A Little Bit Wicked."
