Edu Zapanta: Kristin Chenoweth would make a great Adelaide! Richard Hunt: Kristin Chenoweth. She plays the perfect smart "dumb blond"! Andrea Mays: Kristin Chenoweth... She's got the pipes and superb comic timing. Also old enough to play Adelaide, who is supposed to have a few miles on her.
Kristin Chenoweth, also a bubbly blonde on stage and screen, was another top pick. Chenoweth, a Tony-winning Broadway star who made guest appearances on "Glee," certainly has the vocal skills and the comedy chops to play Adelaide.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
