The recording, which will be available November 17, is the beloved performer's first-ever live album.
Featuring 15 songs, Coming Home captures the performer singing at the "Kristin Chenoweth Theatre" in the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center in her hometown of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. On the Concord Records release, Chenoweth is accompanied by an 11-piece band, a trio of backup vocalists, and the Broken Arrow High School Choir.
The set list spans her stage and screen career, incorporating Broadway classics, pop standards, and contemporary material. The CD is the audio counterpart to Kristin Chenoweth: Coming Home, a television concert special that will premiere on PBS stations nationwide on November 28.
A Broadway favorite for Wicked, You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, and more, Kristin Chenoweth will soon return to the Great White Way in On the Twentieth Century. The revival of the Betty Comden, Adolph Green, and Cy Coleman musical, set to run at the American Airlines Theatre, will star Chenoweth as Hollywood starlet Lily Garland.
