Delightful, Great singing, Fluffy fun, Fast-paced, Entertaining

See it if you're a fan of the tiny-but-mighty star. She sure can sing; what a range! And she's a fine comedian, making the evening great fun.

Don't see it if you want a coherent thread. There's nothing that ties one sing to the next. And some songs selections are subpar, like the closer "Smile. Read more

Spectacular!, Flawless singing, Enchanting, Must see, Heart warming

See it if It's just perfect. Amazing selection of songs, flawless singing, great orchestrations. Kristin is so personable open & fun. Easily lovable.

Don't see it if Even if you don't like concerts there's more than enough story to create a sweet funny thread that makes the entire show a whole. Must See! Read more

"She has lost none of the girlish glow she possessed when she first rose to Broadway stardom...Nor does her singing ever feel mannered, although her bright lyric soprano is a superbly trained instrument...Whether singing or delivering her often self-deprecating patter, Ms. Chenoweth always radiates a pleasure in performing that carries across the proverbial footlights. Even on a ballad — like 'A Quiet Thing,' the ineffably lovely Kander and Ebb song — she’s like a singing ray of sunshine."

"Chenoweth’s exuberant concert is titled 'My Love Letter to Broadway,' and it all but demands that Broadway write a love letter back. I’m happy to oblige...I think Chenoweth is one of the great musical-theater leading ladies of our time, and this concert is a mostly splendid showcase for the qualities that have made her pop from the stage and into the pantheon...There are minor missteps...But the overall effect of the show is to leave you marveling at Chenoweth’s talent."

"This sparkplug performer holds the stage through two hours-plus of eclectic song selections and personal reminiscences...Directed with polish by Richard Jay-Alexander...Her banter is relaxed, funny and warm, and she takes full advantage of the large space while also creating an intimate cabaret feel...Only occasionally did the syrupiness become a little cloying...Chenoweth is in superb voice, supple and controlled, and the selections from 'The Art of Elegance' were lovely."

"Delivers all that we’ve come to love: a sparkling soprano, massive stage presence, and killer comic timing...'Glee' fans will be happy to hear the beautifully mournful Burt Bacharach-Hal David number 'A House Is Not a Home,' while Broadway diehards will be delighted by her gorgeous delivery of 'A Quiet Thing'...Throughout it all, she looks smashing in stunningly cut Christian Siriano costumes...'A Love Letter' is all well and good, but unfortunately, it’s written only through Nov. 13."

"Chenoweth is herself a unique and original mashup, a living lovable contradiction in terms. She's got a big bright legit opera voice. She's a hilarious and self-deprecating comedian...The standout moment: a medley of Willie Nelson's 'You Are Always On My Mind' and Stephen Sondheim's 'Losing My Mind.' It was a little out-there and a whole lot of wonderful. Just like Chenoweth."

"Her fans ought to be pleased that she works in two songs from 'Wicked,' including 'Popular,' which she frames as personal advice to Donald Trump. In addition to her mighty voice, what really makes the concert appealing are Chenoweth’s sociable personality, endless energy, self-deprecating sense of humor and sincere love of musical theater and show business."

"She's not just an ironclad set of pipes though...Chenoweth proves herself to be the consummate musical-theater actress, playing the intention behind every bar and note...Chenoweth joins the ranks of Barbra Streisand, Bette Midler, and Liza Minnelli: leading ladies who can keep us transfixed through an entire night crafted around their considerable personalities and talents...In an age when our country feels increasingly balkanized, Kristin Chenoweth is a reassuring presence."

"She commanded the stage with the ease and intimacy of a veteran performer having a great time living large. The evening she said was a dream come true, and those in attendance were blessed as well...Elegantly directed by Richard Jay-Alexander...Chenoweth enchants with effervescent ease, a soaring soprano with a unique blend of contradictions that keeps you smiling throughout two-plus hours of entertainment."
