Chenoweth has been nominated for two Emmy Awards and for a People’s Choice Award for her role on “Glee.” In 2009, she wrote an upliftingly candid, comedic chronicle of her life so far, “A Little Bit Wicked,” which debuted on the New York Times Hardcover Non-Fiction Best Seller List. In 2015, Chenoweth earned a Drama Desk Award, Outer Critics Circle Award and Broadway.com Audience Choice Award for her lead role in the Roundabout Theatre Company’s “On the Twentieth Century.” She also earned nominations for a Tony Award and a Drama League Award.

In 2016, Chenoweth received rave reviews for her two week run of “MY LOVE LETTER TO BROADWAY”, a solo performance at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. This past September, Chenoweth traveled to Rome in support of Celebrity Fight Night, where she generously helped raise funds for the Andrea Bocelli Foundation with a show-stopping performance with Andrea, describing it as a “life-changing moment on stage.” For more information on Kristin Chenoweth, please visit https://www.officialkristinchenoweth.com/
