"KRISTIN CHENOWETH‘s big voice wowed them at Disney Hall last night. A Chenoweth fan reports the audience included her "West Wing" pals BRADLEY WHITFORD, MARTIN SHEEN, JANEL MOLONEY, ALLISON JANNEY and JIMMY SMITS, along with HUGH JACKMAN, JANE KACZMAREK and SEAN HAYES. Wicked co-star JOEL GREY was there, as was Wicked impresario STEPHEN SCHWARTZ. ALANIS MORISSETTE joined Chenoweth on stage for "For Good" from Wicked. The evening‘s most touching moment came when Chenoweth dedicated the night to the late "West Wing"-er JOHN SPENCER, who passed away this past December."
Bradley Whitford, Martin Sheen, Jimmy Smits and John Wells from "The West Wing" attended.

"Just got back from Kristin Chenoweth's concert at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. There was a note at the bottom of the title page of the program: "Ms. Chenoweth would like to dedicate this evening to the memory of her dear friend John Spencer. She knows he is up there smiling from the front row." The final song of the evening was an acapella version of the song "You'll Never Know", which she dedicated to him. "
The Ventura County Star has ticket details:
"Despite her acting prowess, Chenoweth's true gift is her gloriously expressive voice, which she'll put to good use when she performs a solo show this weekend at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. Expect a song or two from "Wicked" and maybe "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown," the Broadway show in which Chenoweth won a Tony playing the boisterous Sally Brown, as well as show tunes like "If" and "The Girl in 14G" off her "Let Yourself Go" album. She'll also send up her Disney Hall debut with a humorous song called "A Girl Like Me," first performed at a recent California State University, Fullerton, masterclass and, if the rumors are true, sing a duet with rocker Alanis Morissette.
Chenoweth performs at 7 p.m. Feb. 26 at Walt Disney Concert Hall, 111 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles. Tickets, $35-$95, are available through Ticketmaster, 583-8700 or http://www.ticketmaster.com."
