Tony Award winner Kristin Chenoweth (You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown; Wicked; Promises, Promises) is scheduling a very busy year for herself, but since the actress had some down time before she gears up for TV, Broadway and an album tour, she stopped by Times Square to kick off the US Open ticket sales and show off her tennis skills.


"I love to watch tennis. I don't play tennis—I wouldn't do that to anybody," Chenoweth told Playbill.com at the ticket sale event after a few swings in the miniature US Open-style court in the heart of Times Square. Even though she doesn't play, she is set to attend the US Open in Flushing, NY, when it runs Aug. 29-Sept. 11.

However, once the summer ends and the US Open concludes, Chenoweth will be taking on numerous projects, including the new television series "Good Christian Belles," an album tour and a planned return to Broadway next spring in On the Twentieth Century—but the performer says that she is great at multitasking.

When talking about On the Twentieth Century, Chenoweth said, "It's a glove that fits very, very well," and added that she would love to follow in the footsteps of Madeline Kahn and Judy Kaye, who played the role of Lily Garland in the 1978 Broadway production.

As for television, she looks forward to playing Carlene Cockburn on "Good Christian Belles," saying, "It's pretty funny. I couldn't not do it. It's a departure for me—it's a departure from Olive Snook (from 'Pushing Daisies') [and from] April Rhodes (from 'Glee') to Carlene Cockburn—she's the villain, but she's fun."
