Kristin Chenoweth Will Join Shoshana Bean for Her Apollo Christmas Spectacular
Wicked's 20th anniversary may have just passed, but "Thank Goodness" we won't have to wait long for another Wicked reunion! Shoshana Bean will be joined by Emmy, Grammy and Tony Award Winner Kristin Chenoweth for her highly anticipated one-night-only holiday concert at Harlem’s World Famous Apollo Theater on Monday, December 4th at 7:30PM.
The roof of the Apollo will defy gravity as the Wicked alums reunite on the legendary stage to spread good tidings. Shoshana says, “When Kristin shows up, she shows up with her entire being… that massive heart. To have her a part of anything is to have it touched by magic.”
Shoshana’s Apollo holiday shows have become a magical NYC tradition. Each year, she invites some of her favorite artists and friends to join her in this modern soul-filled take on the classic holiday special. Previous guests include Cynthia Erivo, Ledisi, Leslie Odom Jr, Jeremy Jordan, Gavin Creel and more. Additional guest will be announced over the coming weeks.
Shoshana and Kristin’s enduring friendship dates back to 2003 when their paths crossed at Broadway’s Wicked. The two have maintained an off-stage friendship since, and recently connected on the green carpet for Wicked’s 20th Anniversary celebration. In 2019, Shoshana joined Kristin as her special guest in her Broadway residency For the Girls. In 2021, the two shared a wall of a rehearsal studio as Kristin prepared for her Lincoln Center holiday concert and Shoshana prepared for her annual Apollo show held on the same night. This will be Shoshana’s sixth concert at the Apollo Theater since 2018 and will mark Kristin’s debut on the iconic stage.
Shoshana Bean is currently starring in the brand-new Alicia Keys musical Hell’s Kitchen at the Public Theater. The Grammy and Tony Award nominee is spending her night off in Harlem to kick off the holiday season and keep the tradition alive. Bean recently starred opposite Billy Crystal in Broadway’s Mr. Saturday Night. She previously starred on Broadway as Elphaba in Wicked and Jenna in Waitress. Her six independent studio albums have landed her on top of the iTunes and Billboard charts.
