Chenoweth, as previously announced, will step in for Marin Mazzie in the City Center Encores! production of Music in the Air due to the recent death of Mazzie's father. Because of her new commitment, which runs Feb. 5-8, Chenoweth will be unable to play the Connecticut venue Feb. 7. Her concert has been rescheduled for March 28.
The ever-busy actress also told TVGuide.com that the creator of "Pushing Daisies," Bryan Fuller, has an idea for a film version of the now-canceled series that would tie up plot lines that won't be resolved if and when the final episodes of the ABC series are aired.
"It would wrap up a lot of the unanswered questions that people will have once they finally air our final episodes," Chenoweth told TVGuide.com. "I'm sure that Bryan Fuller wouldn't do [the film] without the six main characters. Paul Reubens was a big part of it — we have certain guest stars that are standouts that we'd want back. But he has such a great idea for it. ... We all want to [do the film]."
Chenoweth will next be seen on the small screen in the new legal drama "Legally Mad." About that David E. Kelley series the actress said, "My character is Skippy Pylon — I love the name — she's the smartest lawyer in the firm, but she's insane. She's crazy. So it'll be very different from Olive. It's also going to be very fun for me to play that kind of part — someone who will just let a judge have it."
Kristin Chenoweth, who received a Tony nomination for her work as Glinda in Stephen Schwartz's Wicked, has been seen on the New York stage in The Fantasticks, Scapin, Steel Pier, A New Brain, Epic Proportions, Strike Up the Band, On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, The Apple Tree, Stairway to Paradise and Candide.
