THE PINK PANTHER

KRISTIN CHENOWETH (Cherie) is a versatile singer and Tony Award-winning actress who has recently made a mark on film and television. She recently starred in Bewitched opposite Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell. She filmed the movie while simultaneously appearing in a recurring role on TV's acclaimed White House drama "The West Wing.”

Upcoming for Chenoweth are Stranger Than Fiction from director Marc Forster (Finding Neverland) with Ferrell, Emma Thompson and Maggie Gyllenhaal, the film version of Augusten Burroughs's Running With Scissors, written and directed by Ryan Murphy (TV's "Nip/Tuck”), with Annette Bening, the comedy RV with Robin Williams and the title role in the film biography of singer Dusty Springfield. A classically trained singer who is equally at home with pop, old standards and Broadway musicals, Chenoweth recently made her solo recording debut with the release of "Let Yourself Go" for Sony Classical. Chenoweth's next album, "As I Am,” was released in April on Sony Classical/Integrity. "As I Am” brings together a rich and deeply felt collection of songs that range from classic hymns to contemporary pop hits – songs that are all about faith, all about love in its most spiritual and renewing sense.

Chenoweth's last visit to Broadway was in the production of "Wicked,” in which she played Glinda the Good Witch, and earned a Tony nomination. She went on to star with the New York Philharmonic Leonard Bernstein's "Candide.”

Chenoweth is also gearing up for the lead as a spoiled rich girl in the independent movie-musical Asphalt Beach, written and directed by Peter Spears, who made a splash at last year's Sundance Film Festival with his standout short film Ernest & Bertram.

Chenoweth recently appeared on the 22nd annual "A Capitol Fourth Concert” on PBS, and she was seen this past spring in the ABC movie-version of Meredith Wilson's "The Music Man” as Marian the librarian opposite Matthew Broderick.

Chenoweth can also currently be seen on "Sesame Street” as Ms. Noodle and in Elmo's video/DVD "Elmo's World: Happy Holidays!,” the first ever Elmo's World Holiday special.

Last year, Chenoweth received rave reviews for her for "Lincoln Center's Fifth American Songbook.” She also received critical acclaim for her performance in "City Center Encores! 10th Anniversary Bash.” Chenoweth was in London for a theater production of "Divas at Donmar” for director Sam Mendes. She also appeared in the Actor's Fund Benefit Concert of the musical "Funny Girl” in New York City.

Chenoweth made her Broadway debut in a production of Moliere's "Scapin” starring Bill Irwin, followed in the spring 1997 by the Kander and Ebb musical "Steel Pier,” for which she won a Theatre World award. During the 1998-99 season, she created the role of Sally in the first Broadway production of "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” sweeping the Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards as the season's Best Featured Actress in a Musical.
