Emmy and Tony Award winning actress, singer, author and humanitarian Kristin Chenoweth – with a Master’s degree in Opera Performance from Oklahoma City University – will be “Defying Gravity” one night only on the Tuacahn stage on Saturday, April 14.
With a lengthy career which includes film, television, voiceover and stage, the diminutive blond entertainer has performed to sold-out audiences around the world, including performances at Carnegie Hall and Royal Albert Hall. She has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame awarded in 2015 and in 2009, she received an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in “Pushing Daisies.” In 1999, she won a Tony Award for “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown” and among numerous other awards and recognitions she was nominated for her original role of Glinda the Good Witch in “Wicked” in 2004.
Her notable television roles include recurring appearances in “The West Wing,” as well as performances in Disney’s “Descendants” and “The Muppets.” In animated film, Chenoweth voiced the role of Gabi in the hit animated film “Rio 2” and Fifi, Snoopy’s beloved French poodle in “The Peanuts Movie.” Additional film credits include, but are in no means limited to, “The Boy Next Door,” “Deck the Halls,” “Twelve Men of Christmas,” “Four Christmases,” “RV,” “Bewitched,” “The Pink Panther,” “Hit & Run” and “Family Weekend.” Chenoweth’s most recent project finds her starring in and producing the upcoming ABC-TV comedy “The Real Fairy Godmother.”
In 2017, Chenoweth released “The Art of Elegance,” her first album of American Songbook classics, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Current Jazz and Traditional Jazz charts, and #1 on Amazon’s Vocal Pop chart. Chenoweth also received rave reviews for her limited engagement, never-the-same-thing-twice 2016 musical revue and concert on the stage of the Lunt-Fontanne Theater, entitled “My Love Letter to Broadway.”
