In between the nods to current events – the Jake and Vienna split, the World Cup, the Iphone 4 – Chenoweth discusses the challenges of doing two shows a day, a fun Wicked backstage story and her early days as a struggling performer in New York. She and Regis chat about the Public Theater production of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, the just-released cast recording of Promises, and her co-star, Sean Hayes. They even duet on one of her earliest audition pieces, “You Made Me Love You.”
“Live with Regis and Kelly” airs in the New York metropolitan area on WABC-7 at 9 AM. Check local listings.
