Kristin Chenoweth gave a dazzling concert at the Hollywood Bowl for 2 nights on 23rd
& 24th August. In 1999, Chenoweth won a Tony Award for her performance as Sally Brown in You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown on Broadway, and in 2003, she received wide notice for originating the role of Glinda in the musical Wicked. Her television roles have included Annabeth Schott in NBC's The West Wing and Olive Snook on the ABC comedy-drama Pushing Daisies, for which she won a 2009 Emmy Award. Chenoweth also starred in the ABC TV series Glee in 2012.

Kristin Chenoweth

The tiny 4’11 TV and Broadway Star won over the crowd with her hilarious charm and belly aching laugh-inducing personality as she sang to an almost sold out show at the Hollywood Bowl. She performed an amazing selection of songs that Broadway fans know her well for including; Que Sera, Sera, Over the Rainbow, I’m tired, For Good, working 9-5, Moonriver, I could have danced all night and Wishing you were somehow here again.

As we entered the Hollywood bowl we were seated with the assistance of a pleasant volunteer usher. We were served wine and a picnic which we had pre-ordered in the outdoor arena. The world renowned Los Angeles Philharmonic and conductor Kevin Stites sat on stage warming up as the audience were seated. As the orchestra played their first melody while waiting for Chenoweth to grace the stage we found ourselves bedazzled by a spectacular fireworks display. “I like to start with a bang” she says as she enters the stage wearing a stunning white gown. Charming and funny, she easily wins over the crowd before performing song after song, beautifully. With her talent and a witty personality you begin to adore her.

During her performance she mentioned she is working on an animation movie with Disney, called up Dolly Parton on live video asking her for man advice and she even allowed a selected audience member to join her on stage for a duet, which has now gone viral on youtube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6S8Cn2FmqxQ

Overall the night was truly spectacular and captured the stars best assets; her personality, and voice. In between her performances she takes time out to joke with the audience and engage in a few hilarious impromptu skits. The night not only captured one of Broadway's most loved stars but the bundle of talent itself that this celebrated icon is famous for in the first place.
