NEWS: Kristin Chenoweth to tour the UK in March 2013 with London, Edinburgh, Manchester and Cardiff dates

Tony and Emmy Award-winning Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth is to perform in UK for the first time in over a decade. The UK tour, which will go to London’s Coliseum, Manchester’s Opera House, the Edinburgh Festival Theatre and the Wales Millennium Centre in March 2013, will reflect Chenoweth’s varied career in opera, pop, musical theatre (Wicked, Promises, Promises) and TV (Glee, Pushing Daisies).

As well as winning Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for her rôle as Sally in You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown,Chenoweth is probably best known for creating the rôle of Glinda the good witch in Stephen Schwartz’s Wicked and has sung for President Obama, the Queen and Oprah Winfrey(arguably TV royalty).

The evening is directed by Richard Jay-Alexander, whose extensive credits includes concerts for internationally renowned stars such as Barbra Streisand (including her most recent tour), Bernadette Peters and Bette Midler, and the star-studded Hollywood Bowl concert stagings of Les Misérables and Guys and Dolls. The show’s conductorwill be the legendary Rob Fisher, founding Musical Director and Conductor of the acclaimed Encores! series, at New York’s City Center.
