Kristin Chenoweth Performs at PlayhouseSquare's Palace Theatre Tonight, 6/13
Emmy and Tony Award winner Kristin Chenoweth launched her debut world tour in May. The 19-date North American leg of the tour kicked off May 9th in Seattle and concludes in Chenoweth's hometown of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma on June 24th. In between, she'll be making her first appearance at PlayhouseSquare's Palace Theatre, tonight, June 13 for one 7:30 pm show.
Sony Recording Artist Chenoweth will perform songs from her latest album Some Lessons Learned, as well as a catalog of her most memorable songs and Broadway show tunes (including music from Wicked and Promises, Promises) and songs she performed during her appearances on the FOX-TV series Glee.
In November 2010, Chenoweth was inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame for her achievements. She won a Tony Award for her role as Sally Brown in the Broadway musical You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown. She also originated the role of Glinda in Wicked, which also earned her a Tony Award nomination. In 2010, she appeared as Fran Kubelik in Promises, Promises alongside Sean Hayes.
She was awarded an Emmy for her performance as Olive Snook in the television dramedy Pushing Daisies. Chenoweth is also known on TV for playing Annabeth Schott in The West Wing, and, most recently, as April Rhodes in GLEE, a role for which she was Emmy-nominated in 2010 and 2011. She also had her own TV series, Kristin. Film credits include Bewitched, The Pink Panther, Running With Scissors, Stranger Than Fiction, Four Christmases, RV and the upcoming films Ed Zwick's Family Weekend and Outrun.
Produced in Nashville, the country pop album Some Lessons Learned is Chenoweth's fourth album on Sony. Her debut album Let Yourself Go (2001) centered on show and movie musical classics including the title track, from the 1936 Fred Astaire film Follow the Fleet. It was followed in 2005 by As I Am, an album of Christian music, and in 2008, a holiday album A Lovely Way To Spend Christmas.
Chenoweth documented her life in the 2009 memoir A Little Bit Wicked: Life, Love, And Faith In Stages.
