Kristin Chenoweth Returns to Broadway

Beloved star of Broadway, Tony and Emmy-winner Kristin Chenoweth will return to Broadway this fall in a live stage concert celebrating the release of her new album Kristin Chenoweth: For The Girls. Star of such shows as Wicked, You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown, and The Apple Tree, Chenoweth will sing songs that honor the iconic women that have stood before her. This limited-engagement will play Broadway’s Nederlander Theatre starting November 8, 2019 and will play through November 17, 2019. Directed by Richard Jay-Alexander and presented by James L. Nederlander, the concert will feature music direction by Mary-Mitchell Campbell.

Chenoweth has described her new album saying, “I really wanted to pay homage to all the women singers who have influenced me over the years. I wanted to make something that men could also enjoy, but this is by the girls and for the girls. I wanted to pay homage to these women and do them proud, but I also wanted to put my own stamp on it. And I think I was able to do that.” She will wow the audience with songs such as “The Way We Were,” “When I Fall in Love,” and “The Man That Got Away” from the beloved artists Barbra Streisand, Dolly Parton, and Judy Garland.
