You might know her as a Tony Award-winning Broadway star, who originated the role of Galinda the Good Witch in the smash musical Wicked and won a Tony for 1999's You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. Or you may recognize her from her starring roles on The West Wing, Pushing Dasies, Sesame Street... oh, and her huge hit sitcom Kristin on NBC. Or her appearance on Pat Robinson's The 700 Club. The 700 Club? Kristin is a wonderful collection of contradictions-- but everyone who's ever met her remembers her as the little girl with the big voice. At four foot eleven, Kristin Chenoweth is an immense talent in a petite but powerful package. In this lively, laugh-out-loud audio book, Kristin shares her journey from Oklahoma beauty queen to Broadway leading lady, reflecting on how faith and family have kept her grounded in the dysfunctional rodeo of showbiz. The daughter of an engineer and nurse, Kristin was singing in front of thousands at Baptist conventions by age twelve and winning beauty pageants at age twenty-two. (Well, actually she was second runner-up almost every freaking time. But, hey, she's not bitter.) On her way to a career as a professional opera singer, she stopped in New York to visit a friend and went on a whim to an audition. Through a combination of talent, hard work, and (she's quick to add) the grace of God, Kristin took Broadway by storm. But of course, into every storm, the occasional drizzle of disaster must fall.

Kristin reads the book herself which makes this audiobook a gem to listen to. Irreverant, funny and also at times poignant I found myself applauding her for being true to herself and writing an autobiography that reflected her personality. Highly recommend for all Kristin and theatre fans (there are many in jokes that not all might get).

I wasn’t too familiar with Kristin. But after this book I’m now a fan and admirer. I’ve seen many of her interviews, Broadway shows and episods of her canceled sitcom. She is very down to earth and real.
