For one night only, Kristin Chenoweth will perform with an 11 piece band in QPAC’s Concert Hall on June 14 2013.
In her first tour outside the US, the Emmy and Tony Award winner will treat us to some of her most well-known songs from Wicked, GLEE and Les Misérables along with some personal favourites and a few surprises.
“I am even bringing my parents on this tour with me for their 50th wedding anniversary. They are so excited to see Australia and looking forward to the experience,” said Kristin.
An Oklahoma Hall of Fame inductee, Kristin effortlessly transitions between stage, television and film, captivating audiences no matter what platform she stands on.
She received rave reviews and an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series while starring in the ABC series Pushing Daisies, and also appeared in Fox’s musical comedy series Glee, where she played a former student. She also starred as Annabeth Schott on the hit drama The West Wing and guest judged on American Idol.
Kristin recently wrapped production of the movie Ed Zwick’s Family Weekend, a film which centres around a disgruntled teenager’s attempts to get attention from her dysfunctional family.

Later this year, Chenoweth will star in the new American ABC show, Good Christian Belles, as Darlene. The show centres on a recently divorced mother of two who moves back to the affluent Dallas neighbourhood to get a fresh start, and finds herself in the whirling midst of salacious gossip, Botox, and fraud.
Chenoweth was also recently seen in the Disney movie You Again alongside Jamie Lee Curtis and Kristen Bell. She is the voice of Rosetta in Walt Disney Picture’s Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure and The Great Fairy Rescue.
For hard core fans, Kristin has also has an autobiography in print – A Little Bit Wicked – which was released in 2009.
But for her musical theatre fans, her most memorable career highlights were her show-stealing, Tony-winning performance in You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown and her Tony Award nomination performance as the original Glinda the Good Witch in Stephen Schwartz’s Wicked, which she will treat us to in her one night only concert in Brisbane in June.
If you are planning on seeing Kristin in Brisbane, then book now to avoid disappointment.
