Kristin Chenoweth

Kristin Chenoweth seems to be at ease on any stage. Broadway audiences know this well. 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. Television fans know her as Annabeth Schott on The West Wing, and moviegoers caught her in the film version of Bewitched with Nicole Kidman, The Pink Panther with Steve Martin, and RV with Robin Williams.

This year, Chenoweth's slate of films includes Running with Scissors with Gwyneth Paltrow and Annette Bening, and Stranger Than Fiction with Will Ferrell and Emma Thompson. Chenoweth hopes to begin production soon in the biographical role of Dusty Springfield.

A veteran of the concert scene, Chenoweth took the stage in a solo sold-out concert at Carnegie Hall in 2004 and continues to tour the country. Chenoweth was in London for a theater production of Divas at Donmar for director Sam Mendes, which opened to rave reviews. Following her triumph in London, Chenoweth has performed with The New York Philharmonic, Boston Pops, National Symphony Orchestra, Chicago Symphony and the San Francisco Symphony.

One of her proudest accomplishments recently was having the privilege to perform Candide with The New York Philharmonic at Lincoln Center. Recent performances include her sold-out Los Angeles solo debut at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, an evening at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, and the Washington National Opera's 50th Anniversary Gala with Placido Domingo. Next, Chenoweth will have the honor of playing her solo concert at the famed Metropolitan Opera House in January 2007. Chenoweth is also an accomplished recording artist, and has released the albums Let Yourself Go, and As I Am. She is gearing up for her third album later this year.
