Chenoweth — who currently stars as Glinda in the hit musical Wicked — will take to the stage of the famed hall Sept. 10. According to Chenoweth's spokesperson, the actress will be backed by a full orchestra for the one-night-only event.
Kristin Chenoweth, who won a Tony Award for her performance in You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, made her New York theatrical debut opposite Bill Irwin in a production of Molière's Scapin and followed that with a role in Kander and Ebb's Steel Pier. Roles in Off-Broadway's A New Brain and the City Center Encores! productions of Strike Up the Band and On a Clear Day You Can See Forever ensued. Chenoweth also starred in her own, short-lived TV series "Kristin," and her other TV appearances include roles in "Frasier" and ABC's television adaptation of the musical Annie. She was also featured in the TV production of Meredith Willson's The Music Man.
Tickets for Kristin Chenoweth at Carnegie Hall will go on sale mid-January.
