Lastnight I went to see Kristin Chenoweth Live at DAR/Constitution Hall in Washington DC. Not only was the Kristin Chenoweth tour amazing, but if you don’t buy show tickets for Kristin Chenoweth on tour, you will regret it! Kristin is an amazing performer that did everything from classic showtunes, to country western songs and an amazing ballad which was about her religion and got a standing ovation from a crowd that normally wouldn’t want to hear religious songs. She also had a ton of surprises during the show which made it more than worth missing the Tony Awards.
I’m not going to ruin the surprise for you all, but Kristin brings some of her most competitive Actors from the past, including a few that she lost to for a funny comedy routine and almost a sing off. It was absolutely incredible to see Kristin invite these three broadway celebrities on stage with her and the audience bursted into applause when they went off on each other. It was phenomenal. Kristin also has a surprise guest at each show that doesn’t know they are going to be a guest.
During the song “For Good” from Wicked, Kristin chooses a couple of people or one person from the audience to come up and either sing it as a duet or with her. In DC, she chose a girl that she saw in Philly but felt bad for not choosing then so she brought her down and let her come up to sing Elphaba’s part. Unfortunately for Kristin, this girl Lindsay sang the crap out of the song and even showed up Kristin a bit. I’ve never seen someone that could out do someone like Kristin Chenoweth and for the first time, I was absolutely shocked when I saw an unknown get up on stage and work a song better than Idina could and match Kristin with voice and talent. Kristin even made the joke “Note to self, never bring up someone on stage that is more talented than you”. Lindsay did an awesome job and I will be happy to see her in a show if/when she makes it on broadway.
The show and tour were absolutely amazing. Kristin definitely plugged her cds which are amazing and completely worth buying, as well as brought in her favorite charities and the charity her Musical Director started. Kristin has done a ton of work for groups like Broadway Cares and especially for her own Maddies Corner which is great for people who want to help animals get adopted. She is an amazing person who has a ton of talent and a huge heart which is more than amazing that it can all fit in someone who is just 4’11”. You don’t get many celebrities who are extremely talented and actually care. Many of them have a cause they support but it is somewhat for publicity or just a sometimes thing. By listening to Kristin talk and to the song she dedicated to her charities, you can tell her heart is dedicated to these causes and she really cares. She is an absolutely amazing performer and one of the most caring celebrities out there.
If you have a chance to go to the Kristin Chenoweth tour, buy your tickets fast as this is an amazing show and will hopefully sell out. You’ll hear everything from classic broadway showtunes to funny songs about shoes and even songs she has written for her new album. Kristin has done a ton of work and dedicated her time and energy to helping different communities and this is the perfect way to show her your thanks, as well as have an amazing night out. Kristin Chenoweth on tour is a must see if she is in your city. If you can buy tickets for Kristin Chenoweth, do it because this show and her line up is absolutely amazing!
Here she is singing Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again from Phantom of the Opera live. The music takes about 20 seconds to kick in. She is absolutely amazing in this song!
