Emmy, Tony Winner, Kristen Chenoweth to Play Lutcher


Last updated 3/1/2016 at Noon

The Lutcher Theater presents Emmy and Tony Award winning actress and singer, Kristin Chenoweth in the Coming Home Tour, Wednesday, March 16, at 7:30 PM. The Lutcher performance is the only date Ms. Chenoweth has scheduled for a Texas or Louisiana venue for this tour. Tickets range from $55-$90 and are available at or by calling the Lutcher Theater Box Office at 886.5535.

Kristin Chenoweth takes the lead in a career that spans film, television, voiceover and stage, effortlessly.

She received an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on the ABC series Pushing Daisies (Pushing Daisies was also nominated for a Golden Globe Award and Emmy Award for “Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy.”) Chenoweth lit up the stage of McKinley High as a former student who returned to town with more than the baggage from her flight, on Fox’s hit comedy, Glee.

In her role as Glee’s quirky ex-songstress, April Rhodes, she was nominated for two Emmy Awards and a People’s Choice Award in the category of “Favorite TV Guest Star.” Though Kristin has often come into our living rooms on hit shows such as The West Wing (where she starred as Annabeth Schott), she may be most remembered by Broadway lovers everywhere for her origination of the role of Glinda the Good Witch in Wicked, which earned her a Tony Award Nomination, and her Tony-winning performance in You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown, for which she stole the show and many hearts in the process.

In June 2015, Chenoweth co-hosted the Tony Awards alongside Alan Cumming.

In July 2015, Kristin received the coveted star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame in the category of live performances on stage or in theatre.

This show is sponsored locally by Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP.

The Frances Ann Lutcher Theater is located at 707 Main, Orange.
