Story by Jack Foley

FOR the first time in over a decade, Kristin Chenoweth, the Emmy and Tony Award winning Broadway star of Wicked and TV’s The West Wing, Pushing Daisies and Glee, returns to the UK, for one week only, in her debut UK concert tour.

Premièring at the world renowned London Coliseum on Monday, March 11, before visiting the Manchester Opera House, Edinburgh Festival Theatre and Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff, the show is an eclectic mix of musical wonderment.

It includes material from the worlds of opera, pop and musical theatre, songs from her celebrated albums, and music from the shows that have made Kristin one of the most revered musical theatre actresses of her generation.

Best known for originating the role of Glinda in the original cast of the smash hit musical Wicked Kristin is one of Broadway’s most celebrated stars and has garnered a multitude of theatrical achievements, including her Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award winning performance as Sally in You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown, Eve in The Apple Tree and, most recently, Fran Kubelik in Promises, Promises.

Conducting Kristin’s UK tour will be the legendary Rob Fisher, founding Musical Director and Conductor of the acclaimed Encores! series, at New York’s City Center.

In addition, her cast of singer/dancers – Tyler Hanes, Will Taylor and Jennifer Diamond – are all of Broadway pedigree, and the show promises many other surprises to be revealed on the night.
