For a two day engagement August 23-24, Kristin Chenoweth will perform classic songs from Broadway productions and Hollywood films at the Hollywood Bowl. This will be Chenoweth’s Hollywood Bowl solo concert debut.
The event is directed by Richard Jay-Alexander and features musical backing by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra. Chenoweth will be joined by several others including Constantine Germanacos, Jennifer Diamond and Johnny Stellard. There is also set to be special appearances by Lucy T. Slut and The Bad Idea Bears.
Chenoweth is both honored and overjoyed to have the opportunity to do this two day performance. She was quoted as saying, ” “This has been a dream of mine, not unlike, earlier this year, when I got to play the Sydney Opera House in Australia. I gave this particular show a lot of thought and even had special clothes designed for this two-night engagement. Every time I’m in a fitting, for the opening dress, I look at myself in the mirror and get excited and nervous, like a bride. I just want it all to be magical… out in the open air, and for everyone to have a beautiful evening. I’ll be jealous that everyone out there will be having lovely food and drinks and I’ll be onstage, working!”
Chenoweth is no novice to the stage. She is incredibly accomplished having won a Tony Award in 1999 for her role in You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown. She was also nominated in 2004 for the performance she gave in the show Wicked. She has also won awards for her work in film and television including “Pushing Daisies” and “Glee”.
Director Jay-Alexander has boasted about his love for working with Chenoweth saying, Working with Kristin has been a dream come true for me. It’s endless discovery and awe, in both gleaning material and witnessing her gifts and growth from rehearsal to rehearsal.”
