Hosted by New York Times critic Stephen Holden, the April 26 evening will begin at 7 PM. A Conversation with Kristin Chenoweth is the latest in the series with Broadway performers "whose work has a special resonance in the gay and lesbian community." Participants in the series have previously included Barbara Cook, Bernadette Peters and Eartha Kitt. Kristin Chenoweth, who received a Tony nomination for her work as Glinda in Stephen Schwartz's Wicked, has been seen on the New York stage in The Fantasticks, Scapin, Steel Pier, A New Brain, Epic Proportions, Strike Up the Band, On a Clear Day You Can See Forever and Candide. The actress won her Tony Award for her performance as Sally Brown in the Broadway bow of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. Chenoweth recently released her second solo recording, "As I Am" (Sony Classical), and will be seen in a slew of upcoming movies, including "The Pink Panther," "Bewitched," "Asphalt Beach," "Running with Scissors" and "Stranger Than Fiction." Currently part of the cast of NBC's "The West Wing," the singer-actress will also star in the final Encores! production of the City Center season: The Apple Tree.
