KRISTIN CHENOWETH (Kilowatt) effortlessly transitions between television, film, stage and concert hall with captivating grace. She is currently starring in the critically acclaimed ABC series "Pushing Daisies.” Other small screen credits include last year's season finale of ABC's hit comedy "Ugly Betty,” in which she played an orthodontic technician who loves romantic comedies and becomes overly involved in her patients' lives—including Betty's (America Ferrera). Chenoweth recently starred in "Stairway to Paradise,” an original Encores Production celebrating the great Broadway revue.

Fans also know Chenoweth as Annabeth Schott on "The West Wing”; the librarian, Marian Paroo, in ABC's movie version of Meredith Wilson's "The Music Man”; and Lily St. Regis in the television adaptation of "Annie.” Chenoweth also starred in her own series "Kristin” for NBC.

Moviegoers have seen Chenoweth in Deck the Halls, with Danny DeVito and Matthew Broderick; RV, with Robin Williams; Bewitched, with Will Ferrell and Nicole Kidman; Running with Scissors, with Annette Bening; and The Pink Panther, with Steve Martin. Her film credits also include a cameo in Stranger Than Fiction, with Emma Thompson. In her next film project, Chenoweth stars alongside Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn in the comedy Four Christmases directed by Seth Gordon.

On stage, many remember Chenoweth's show-stealing, Tony®-winning performance in "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown” and her triumphant star turn originating the role of Glinda the Good Witch in "Wicked,” which earned the actress a Tony Award nomination. Chenoweth also performed in the Broadway comedy "Epic Proportions” and in the Kander and Ebb musical "Steel Pier,” for which she won a Theatre World award. Chenoweth starred in an off-Broadway production of Moliere's "Scapin” for the Roundabout Theatre Company and in the critically lauded limited-engagement of "The Apple Tree” at Roundabout Theatre Company's Studio 54.

A highly regarded vocal performer, Chenoweth took the stage in a sold-out solo concert at Carnegie Hall in 2004 and continues to tour the country. She also had the honor of playing a sold-out solo show at the famed Metropolitan Opera House. Commemorating the centennial anniversary of the first "Ziegfeld Follies,” she concluded New York City Center's 2007 season with beloved Broadway numbers from the early 20th century.

Chenoweth received glowing reviews for her solo concert at Sam Mendes's acclaimed Donmar Warehouse as part of the "Divas at Donmar” series. Since her show in London, Chenoweth has collaborated with various symphonies, including The New York Philharmonic, Boston Pops, National Symphony Orchestra, Chicago Symphony and the San Francisco Symphony. One of her proudest recent accomplishments was performing Bernstein's "Candide” at Lincoln Center with The New York Philharmonic. Other performances include her sold-out Los Angeles solo debut at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, an evening at The Greek Theater in Los Angeles and the Washington National Opera's 50th Anniversary Gala, with Placido Domingo. She is scheduled to have her Metropolitan Opera debut in March 2010 as Samira in John Corigliano's "The Ghost of Versailles.”

Chenoweth is also an accomplished recording artist. Following the success of her albums "Let Yourself Go” and "As I Am” on Sony Classical, she is gearing up for a third album.
