I’m a big fan of Tony award winning Broadway and Hollywood star Kristin Chenoweth, so I was really excited to learn that she had written an autobiography. Chenoweth is probably best known for originating the role of Galinda in the musical Wicked and starring on television shows such as The West Wing, Pushing Daisies, Glee, and GCB, to name a few. She’s also starred in movies and recorded albums.
A Little Bit Wicked tells the story of all the ups and downs in Chenoweth’s life, starting with her early days as an adopted child in Oklahoma and detailing the steps she took along the way to her successful career as an actress and singer. Kristin shares intimate details of her personal and professional life and discusses the lessons she’s learned while facing difficulties along the way.
I decided to listen to the audiobook version because it is narrated by her, which made it a lot of fun. (There are also a couple guest narrators who pop in to tell their side of the story!) I would recommend this book to fans of Chenoweth or those interested in musical theater and acting. It was fun to get a glimpse behind the scenes of Broadway and television.
