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.
Ellie Caulkins Opera House’s swooping wooden frames carve out three levels of upper seating and encircle the ceiling, softening reverb to create the auditorium’s crystalline acoustics. Every seat in the house boasts seatback tilting to optimize comfort and let audience members easily sneak peeks at the spidery modern chandelier, which eschews the traditional crystal and musketeer handholds for nine elegantly outstretched fixtures.
