Few artists are more in demand, or should we say “popular,” than Tony Award winner Kristin Chenoweth, who will be dazzling all kinds of audiences over the coming weeks.
On November 8, she begins an 8-performance run of her new Broadway concert, For The Girls, at the Nederlander Theatre, which combines selections from her recently released CD (Concord Records, produced by Steve Tyrell) of the same name with a variety of Chenoweth’s favorite tunes from the worlds of pop, country, gospel and the Great White Way – not to mention a slew of wickedly talented special guest stars. The album is musically directed by Mary-Mitchell Campbell, directed by Richard Jay-Alexander.
Meanwhile, Chenoweth will release a special e-single of the holiday favorite “White Christmas” on November 15 and she already has another CD on the shelves, “Angels Among Us,” which she recorded last year with the famed Tabernacle Choir. (Moreover, the concert can also be purchased on DVD and will air on PBS and BYUtv on December 16.)
Last, but by no means least, Chenoweth will star as a holiday choir director — opposite TV and stage favorite Scott Wolf – in the Hallmark Channel’s highly anticipated telefilm “A Christmas Love Story,” which debuts on December 7.
TheaterPizzazz recently sat in on a special rehearsal of “For the Girls” and spoke afterwards with the multi-talented star about all these exciting projects!
