I have been a fan of Kristin Chenoweth since I first saw her on the Rosie O’Donnell  Show years ago.  I saw her in Wicked 4 times while I was living in New York.  During my years performing on cruise ships, I would watch her performance of “Glitter and be Gay” over and over on…

  • Karen - Wonderful shots!!! I have not been moved by a show like that in years, or maybe in forever.

    It was best to sit back and listen, but I also couldn’t help but pull out the camera for a bit. Thank you for sharing. It is so nice to capture and remember amazing nights like this one.

  • Dan Reeder - The photos are amazing! Thank you for posting. I’m always amazed that Tina draws thousands (tens of thousands at times) at concerts in Europe, but we get to see her up close and intimate. We are incredibly lucky. She is one of the top singer-songwriters on the planet.

  • admin - Thank you! I agree, we are so very lucky to get to see her in such small venues…
