About the show

Tony and Emmy winner Kristin Chenoweth reunites with her greatest love—Broadway—in a strictly limited, 12‑performance concert. More…

After winning a Tony for her breakthrough performance in ‘You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown,’ Chenoweth rose to Broadway super-stardom as the original Glinda in ‘Wicked.’ Most recently, this leading lady returned to the stage for a celebrated performance in ‘On the Twentieth Century.’ For this concert, she will perform a handpicked selection of musical theater favorites, including songs from her latest album 'The Art of Elegance.' Chenoweth is backed by a five-person band, and welcomes a new special guest star every performance.

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.

Also Guest performer Alan Cumming was terrific in Annie's "Easy Street."

Flawless

See it if If you are a KC fan and just want to enjoy her ridiculous talent and charming personality.

Don't see it if If you are expecting a series of Broadway performance numbers. It's a concert format, so it's really only about her voice & personal stories

Also Limited choreo, sets and costume changes--though the few costumes she ... Read more Read less

Great singing, Funny, Dazzling, Entertaining

See it if This is easy. See it if you're a Kristin Chenoweth fan. Period. It's a concert. And you wouldn't go to a concert of an artist you don't like

Don't see it if This is easy too. Don't see if if you don't love Kristin Chenoweth. Or if you're looking for lavish sets or a big band (it's a 6-piece band)

"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 qual...
