NEW YORK, NY.(AP) - Kristin Chenoweth is taking the long way home.
The Tony Award-winning singer and actress announced Wednesday that she'll kick off her first ever concert tour on May 9 in Seattle and it will end June 24 in Broken Arrow, Okla., the town she grew up in.
Chenoweth's 19-city North America tour will hit Los Angeles, Denver, Detroit, Philadelphia, Boston, Dallas, Toronto, New York, Nashville and Atlanta, among other cities. In her hometown, the main stage at the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center will be renamed in her honor.
The singer says that'll be "very emotional."
Chenoweth says she'll perform songs from her latest album as well tunes from the TV show "Glee" and ones from her Broadway shows like "Wicked."
