THE SCREENING ROOM: Kristin Chenoweth and Talented Fan Perform "For Good" at Hollywood Bowl (Video)
26 Aug 2013
A happy surprise took place when Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth invited an audience member to perform with her and the LA Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl Aug. 23.
Chenoweth invited Southern California resident Sarah Horn onstage to sing "For Good," from Wicked. After Chenoweth asked if Horn is a Broadway fan, Horn said yes, and revealed that she teaches voice lessons.
Chenoweth began the song, singing the part of Glinda, a role she originated on Broadway and received a Tony nomination for. She seemed surprised when Horn began belting the part of Elphaba, harmonizing beautifully with her and appearing very comfortable in front of the audience of 10,000 people.
At one point, Chenoweth exclaimed, "Holy crap. Harmony!"
After Horn left the stage, Chenoweth expressed admiration for Horn's talent and said to the audience, "That voice is teaching our young people."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
