Biography

Broken Arrow OK, United States (1968 – present)

Kristin Chenoweth (born July 24, 1968) is an American soprano and actress. She released her fourth album and debut country album Some Lessons Learned on September 13, 2011.

Chenoweth was born in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. She graduated from Oklahoma City University, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in musical theater and a master’s degree in opera performance. She is a member of Gamma Phi Beta Sorority. While at OCU, she won the title of “Miss OCU” and went on to win first runner-up in the Miss Oklahoma pageant. She performed at Opryland USA. She won a “most talented up-and-coming singer” award in the Metropolitan Opera National Council auditions, which came with a full scholarship to Philadelphia’s Academy of Vocal Arts; she turned down the scholarship when she auditioned and won a part on an off-Broadway show. She also enjoyed watching her boyfriend at the time (professional baseball player Shawn Bryant) pitch.

Chenoweth made her Broadway debut in a production of Molière’s Scapin starring Bill Irwin, followed in the spring of 1997 by the unsuccessful musical Steel Pier by John Kander and Fred Ebb, for which she won a Theatre World award. The following season, she appeared in the City Center Encores! production of the George and Ira Gershwin musical Strike Up the Band and the Lincoln Center Theater production of William Finn’s A New Brain.
