Emmy and Tony Award winning actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth’s career spans film, television, voiceover and stage. In 1999, she won a Tony Award for “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown” and she was also nominated for her original role of Glinda the Good Witch in “Wicked” in 2004. Chenoweth has been nominated for two Emmy Awards and for a People’s Choice Award for her role on “Glee.”
Chenoweth recently co-starred in Apple TV+’s acclaimed musical-comedy series “Schmigadoon!” alongside Cecily Strong, Keegan-Michael Key and Ariana DeBose. For her role as Mildred Layton, Chenoweth received a Critics’ Choice Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.
Chenoweth just released her first picture book “What Will I Do with My Love Today?” Chenoweth has also joined Kathy Najimy, Linda Perry, Chely Wright and Lauren Blitzer as an editor of “My Moment: 106 Women on Fighting for Themselves.” To release May 24, 2022, the essay collection is inspired by—but not limited to—the #MeToo movement and lets women from the entertainment industry and other walks of life describe a crucial point of adversity that propelled them into forward motion for good.
In 2019, Chenoweth released her album “For The Girls,” debuting at #3 on the Current Pop Albums chart and #11 on the Billboard Top Albums chart. The album is a heartfelt tribute to the great female singers throughout history, particularly some of Kristin’s heroes and friends. Guest artists include Ariana Grande, Dolly Parton, Jennifer Hudson and Reba McEntire. The album includes Chenoweth’s personally charged interpretations of classic songs identified with such iconic artists as Barbra Streisand, Lesley Gore, Linda Ronstadt, Dinah Washington, Dolly Parton and more.
Notable television roles include appearances in “The West Wing,” Disney’s “Descendants” and “The Muppets.” She also starred in NBC’s “Hairspray Live!” as Velma Von Tussle in December 2016.
In her lifelong mission to cultivate arts education across the globe, Chenoweth has also created “Places! The Kristin Chenoweth Tour Experience," a unique educational program for young singers that puts them right next to her performing on stage. Each concert in Chenoweth’s ongoing tour will feature local participants from higher education conservatories, universities, and colleges for the immersive educational experience.
