When it comes to describing Kristin Chenoweth, "multitalented" is an understatement. Overlaying a soaring voice with sparkling charisma, Chenoweth won the 1999 Tony for Best Featured Actress in a Musical and originated the role of Glinda the Good Witch in the smash Broadway hit Wicked, earning both fame as the definitive incarnation of that character and the legal right to carry an Oz passport. Her forays into television have included an Emmy win for Pushing Daisies, a stint on The West Wing, a guest appearance on Glee, and a starring role in ABC's new comedy GCB. Mixing classically trained control with the ability to call up a folksy twang from her childhood in Oklahoma, Chenoweth regales audiences with heartbreaking ballads and high-energy romps.
Built in 1964 to give Houston a proper opera house, Jones Hall mixes sleekly modern design with the elegance and comfort of traditional concert halls. The gracefully layered stairs of the lobby crisscross beneath the hanging sculpture Gemini II, which resembles shooting stars to commemorate Houston's involvement in space exploration. In the auditorium, a ceiling made of 800 sound-sharpening hexagons can raise or lower to shift the room's acoustics, accommodating the bombast of operatic performances and the delicate melodies of a cappella quartets fronted by mice.
