Emmy and Tony Award-winner Kristin Chenoweth effortlessly transitions between stage, screen and an accomplished singing career. Many remember her show-stealing, Tony-winning performance in You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown and her triumphant star turn when she originated the role of Glinda the Good Witch in Wicked, which earned her a Tony Award nomination. Chenoweth has explored numerous and diverse roles for film and television, including "Pushing Daisies," for which she received an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, "The West Wing," and "Glee," which earned her Emmy and People's Choice Award nominations.
Chenoweth has completed production on the Universal film "The Boy Next Door," alongside Jennifer Lopez, "Opposite Sex," an indie teen drama entitled "Hard Sell" and the Disney Channel's live-action original movie "Descendents," in which she will play the classic Sleeping Beauty villain Maleficent. This fall, Chenoweth will host the PBS Arts Fall Festival, featuring classic Broadway hits, music from around the country and theatre performances. The festival will include her own concert performance, "Kristin Chenoweth: Coming Home," where she will perform a career-spanning concert in her hometown of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. The concert will be released as a live CD and DVD in November. And in early 2015, she will return to Broadway, playing the glamorous film star, Lily Garland, in the Roundabout Theatre Company's 20-week limited engagement of "On the Twentieth Century."
