Chenoweth Autobiography Makes New York Times Bestseller List
Tony Award winning singer and actress Kristin Chenoweth's autobiography, "A Little Bit Wicked," has made the New York Times' bestseller list for the second consecutive week. Chenoweth's book debuted in the 12th spot and moved to 11th the following week.
The Oklahoma City University alumna visited Oklahoma City April 20 on a national tour to promote her book, released April 14 by Simon & Schuster.
"So many amazing things are happening in my life right now,” Chenoweth said in a release announcing the book tour. “I felt the need to stand still for a moment and take stock of it all. So many blessings, so much love, all the music, laughter, and challenges.”
Chenoweth, who received a Tony nomination for her role as Glinda in “Stephen Schwartz's Wicked, has performed on the New York stage in “The Fantasticks,” “Scapin,” “Steel Pier,” “A New Brain,” “Epic Proportions,” “Strike Up the Band,” “On a Clear Day You Can See Forever,” “The Apple Tree,” “Stairway to Paradise” and “Candide.”
She won her Tony Award for her performance as Sally Brown in “You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.”
Her screen credits include "Four Christmases," "Into Temptation," "Pushing Daisies," "Kristin," "The West Wing," "The Music Man," "The Pink Panther," "Stranger Than Fiction," "Deck the Halls" and "Running with Scissors." She has three solo recordings from Sony: "Let Yourself Go," "As I Am" and "A Lovely Way to Spend Christmas."
Chenoweth will portray Skippy Pylon in the NBC drama "Legally Mad." The series marks a quick return to primetime for Chenoweth, who starred in ABC's critically acclaimed but short-lived "Pushing Daisies," for which she received an Emmy nomination. She also will voice the role of science teacher Miracle Grohe in the new animated comedy "Sit Down, Shut Up," to air on the Fox network.
