BWW TV Exclusive: Director Richard Jay-Alexander Gives the Scoop on Kristin Chenoweth's Upcoming UK Concert TourFor the first time in over a decade, Kristin Chenoweth, the Emmy and Tony Award winning Broadway star of Wicked and TV's The West Wing, Pushing Daisies and GLEE, returns to the UK, for one week only, in her debut UK concert tour. Check below for citites, dates and ticket information. On a break from rehearsal, BroadwayWorld.com sat down with director Richard Jay-Alexander to get the exclusive scoop on what audiences can expect!

The evening is directed by Richard Jay-Alexander, whose extensive credits includes concerts for internationally renowned stars such as Barbra Streisand (including her most recent tour), Bernadette Peters and Bette Midler, and the star-studded Hollywood Bowl concert stagings of LES MISERABLES and GUYS AND DOLLS. Richard is probably best known for his ten years in North America, working with Cameron Mackintosh and helming his North American operation. This is the first time he and Kristin have worked together. The results have proven stellar and this UK tour follows on the heels of sold out US engagements, and will be her only European dates.

The show includes material from the worlds of opera, pop and musical theatre, songs from her celebrated albums, and music from the shows that have made Kristin one of the most revered musical theatre actresses of her generation. Her recent US tour garnered unanimous rave reviews in every city it played, amassing enough superlatives to fill a book.

Conducting Kristin's UK tour will be the legendary Rob Fisher, founding Musical Director and Conductor of the acclaimed Encores! series, at New York's City Center. In addition, her cast of singer / dancers - Tyler Hanes, Will Taylor and Jennifer Diamond - are all of Broadway pedigree, and the show promises many other surprises to be revealed on the night.

Kristin Chenoweth's UK tour is produced by Neil Eckersley for Speckulation Entertainment, and directed by Richard Jay-Alexander with musical direction by Rob Fisher, choreography by Tyler Hanes, sound and lighting design by Matt Berman and featuring costumes from Ms. Chenoweth's closet! Yes, you read that correctly.
