REBLOG to spread a message of love, unity and peace.
03:08 pm Some times I just can't stand people.seriously. I got an email from SMFA(my college) saying that they received my application but I was missing some things in it:
Final High School Transcript (sealed by Edward Little High School) Proof of Immunizations (we still need the Diphtheria/Tetanus, Hepatitis B (3rd dose), and Meningitis vaccines.) Current Address (you may reply to this e-mail with your current mailing address.) Um HELLO!!! My address is on the envelope I sent the application in stupids!!! And My immunizations was in the envelope. And i swear if ELHS didn't send in my Transcript i'm gonna flip a lid on them. Its not that hard to seal it in an envelope and send it to my college. It seems i can't trust anyone to do something important for me.
I swear if I dont get in this time then I quit with the friggin art major, because i'm obviously not good enough if I can't even get into an art school.
You've got to hand it to Kristin Chenoweth: the Christian singer/actress (Wicked, The West Wing) puts her money where her mouth is. Or in this case, her mouth where her mouth is: "She has the best lips", Chenoweth said recently of Running with Scissors co-star Annette Bening, with whom she has a fling in the film. "She was my first female kiss", she said, and added teasingly, "And who knows if she‘ll be my last?"
This might be Chenoweth's first lesbian kiss, but it isn't her first time going to bat for our team: she's playing the lead in the untitled upcoming biopic about queer singer Dusty Springfield, and she served as the MC at the 2005 Power Up gala (which honors lesbians in entertainment).
Chenoweth has also been in the news lately because of reports that Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip creator Aaron Sorkin based Sarah Paulson's Christian character Harriet on Chenoweth. "There's an argument me and Aaron had and it's pretty much verbatim [in the show]," Kristin recently confirmed to New York Dog magazine (yes, you read that right: New York Dog magazine). But, she noted, she definitely doesn't share Harriet's anti-gay rights stance. "I'm totally the opposite of that and that's hard because people will be thinking: Is that really Kristin? But there's nothing you can do about that stuff. You just have to let it go. It's a little weird."
This is the first I've heard that Harriet doesn't support gay rights (this hasn't been indicated on-screen yet). It's a little disappointing--and ironic, considering who's playing her--but whatever. I still like the character, and the show. And in case you're wondering, Studio 60's ratings are okay so far--not great, but not terrible, either. Maybe God will pony up better ratings if Harriet gets over her problems with the gays? It's worth a try, Aaron! Current Mood: calm
Studio 60: Recap of “The West Coast Delay” Aaron Sorkin must’ve gotten home late the day they aired the after-school special, “So Daddy Steals A Little.” It offered a life lesson that has caused a stir both within this week’s episode of Studio 60 and surrounding the making of the show: Don’t take what doesn’t belong to you.
Confused? You’re not alone. Even if you weren’t lucky enough to find yourself a bomb shelter in time to avoid the bombardment of such couplings as Brangelina, TomKat and Vaughniston, you probably never came across an US Weekly with “Sorkinoweth” emblazoned on the cover. Or was it “Chenorkin?”
Back when West Wing was the smartest show on television, show writer Sorkin had a 10-month relationship with actress Kristin Chenoweth. The bubbly Broadway and Tony-winning performer best known for her portrayal as the good witch in Wicked played Annabeth Schott on the White House show.
Fast-forward to today, and Kristin, who just so happens to be a born-again Christian, is pretty peeved. She didn’t get the memo that although she’s not a Studio 60 cast member, she’s in just about every episode. Apparently, arguments between her and her now-ex-bf are the -- sometimes verbatim -- inspiration for the trysts between Harriet Hayes (Chenoweth) and Matt Albie (the modest and humble Sorkin).
The lesson in all this? Behind every good Sorkin is an angry, God-fearing woman who deserves some credit. Oh, and stealing is wrong.
05:40 am Oh my. I didn't think it was possible...but I love Kristin even more than yesterday! She is just so darn cute when she performs taylor the latte boy!!!I want an animated icon of her on that interview.....seriously.Either when she is singing "thank-you for the extra skim *licks lips*" or when she says "Who'd of thought that love coudld be so caffinated?!"

The article itself is a little hard to read, but u can get most of it. They said you can find the mag in most pet stores, so keep your eyes open! I dont know when it will be released, but its gotta be soon!
^ too cute for words.....just too cute....Still love her hair!
^ LOVE this picture! Her hair looks so nice! And Maddie is just plain adorable!
I also have pics of her and her new haircut.....but they are personal pics taken by another person, so i can't post them until i get permission. But you can view them on the forum on Glitter, underneath the photobooth tag thingy.....you have to be a memeber to do this. Just thought i'd let y'all know!
Harriet: "Thats because God loves me and hates the two of you"
forget his name: "prove it" *lights come on* (need an icon of that!)
Oh....and Harriets wholoe accent when she was the witch...made me laugh uncontrollably, along with he whole bear thing...."in which the bear responds, 'roooooooar'"

09:30 am - Randome picture post. I wish i could of gone to see this. *le sigh* But here is new pix of Kristin. Personally i love her hair. It's cute. Dont get me wrong, i LOVED her with long hair too, but i still love this haircut. She looks more mature.
First row (from the left) Barbra Cook, Patti Lupone and our Dearest Kristin Chenoweth. All three wonderful women at the same event.
Found an interview on www.broadwayworld.com the Kristin gave. (its an older interview, she talks about the release of as i am and some of the roles she has played and such things. Even something on Wicked and how it changed her.It also talks about her freindship with Rosie Odonald) Also an article from glamour about Kristin's childhood and a funny article concerning Kristin and Idina and some guy "orgasming" over Kristin. just thought id share!
08:06 am Dear internet, I would appreciate it if you would allow me to go online when i want to instead of when you feel its convenient for you. If we can not fix this problem, then im afraid i will be forced to replace you and your partner the computer.
In other news, I got Wicked tickets!!!! For next October. They touring company is going back to Boston, and I got orchestra seats for 87.50 a peace! Yaya! I'm in seat 17,row....u i think?
Also Saw the premeire of Studio 60. It was actually interesting. Aaron Sorkin is the screenwriter person, and the characters in it are based on himself and people he's known/dated.....IN other words on of the characters is bases on the one and only Kristin Chenoweth. I think her name is Harriet or somthing like that in the show. Matthew Perry plays a drug addict/writer (aaron) And Harriet(aka cheno) or whatever her name was is a devout christian is his ex. It was really interesting coz it talked about harriet joining the 700 club for a cd or something, which is what Kristin did, and regreted it because they had different beleifs than she...or something to that affect. Anywho, it was good.
Found some more cheno pix, and a new one of Idina and Kristin from the tavern on the green party...its so cute! But im gonna wait till i can get a bigger pic of it because its soooooooo small. But yea.
Wish me luck on getting into SMFA,Boston!!! I send out my application tomarrow! *crosses fingers*

Kristin Chenoweth returning to Broadway in 'The Apple Tree' The Associated Press
Published: September 13, 2006
NEW YORK Musical star Kristin Chenoweth will return to Broadway in December to star in a revival of "The Apple Tree," three one-act musicals based on short stories by Mark Twain, Frank R. Stockton and Jules Feiffer and all tied together by a common theme: the consequences of temptation.
The Roundabout Theatre Company production, directed by Gary Griffin, will open Dec. 14 at Studio 54. Preview performances begin Nov. 28.
The musical, which has a book and score by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick (with additional book material by Jerome Coopersmith), originally played New York in 1966 with a cast headed by Barbara Harris, Larry Blyden and Alan Alda. It ran for 463 performances.
No word yet on who will appear as Adam to Chenoweth's Eve, but the performer starred in a City Center production last year at "Encores! Great American Musicals in Concert." The Roundabout revival will be based on that production, also directed by Griffin. Her co-stars then were Malcolm Gets and Michael Cerveris.
Chenoweth received laudatory reviews for her performance, with The Associated Press praising her "megawatt stage presence" and for lifting the show into "the musical-theater stratosphere."
"The Apple Tree" consists of Twain's "The Diary of Adam and Eve," a whimsical tale of the world's first couple; Stockton's "The Lady or the Tiger," an Arabian Nights-style fantasy in which a man must choose one of two doors and get what lies behind it — a woman or a tiger; and Feiffer's "Passionella," the story of a forlorn chimney sweep who wants to become a movie star.
Chenoweth last appeared on Broadway in "Wicked," the hit musical about the early years of the two witches from "The Wizard of Oz." It is currently running at the Gershwin Theatre in New York, the Oriental in Chicago, on tour around the United States and is in previews at London's Apollo Victoria Theatre, where it officially opens Sept. 27.
“I just wish the Americans would go home and leave me here with my Aussie mates!” giggled Idina Menzel, the green-faced star of Wicked. For those of you who aren’t rabid show queens, Wicked. is a musical about the witches of Oz. It was a hit on Broadway (with Idina creating her Tony Award-winning performance) and the first production on London’s West End opens September 27.
The show began previewing last Thursday. According to Ian Phipps, the first preview was like a rock concert. The crowd roared at the entrance of every major character (the cast includes Nigel Planer and Miriam Margolyes). After the show, a group of fans gathered in the street outside the stage door and stayed there for over an hour. Five hundred of them! They screamed and thrust autograph books at anyone who might have been in the show. They all cheered at the top of their voices when a petite, smiling blonde girl waved at them from her fifth-storey window. From up there, they must have looked like Munchkins, but that’s appropriate because the girl was Glinda, the Good Witch. And who was she? Sydney’s own sexy soubrette Helen Dallimore.
You may know Helen as the blonde mother whose baby grabs the remote and bangs the garage door on the hood of their car. I saw Wicked on Friday, and Helen was fantastic. She sang the bejesus out of the difficult vocal part, and played Glinda as an ever-so-posh Sloane Square slag. It was as if Princess Di had been to Barbara Windsor’s hairdresser for a platinum rinse. Hysterical! Ms Menzel was mesmerising as Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West… and that’s comparing her to the best: Cleo Coupe at the Imperial.
Eye candy was provided by Adam Garcia, another Australian. Adam, pictured here, first made an impact in London channelling John Travolta in the stage version of Saturday Night Fever. I worked with him when he was a 16-year-old tapper, and he’s even hotter now than he was then. (Also, I love any straight man who knows who Tom of Finland is!).
The four of us had dinner at Helen’s last week. She and I fondly remember the night we got pissed over dinner with Simon Burke at RQ and cleared the room by putting the word “cunt” into movie titles. Loudly. Then we were refused entrance to the Shift for being legless. We’re older and wiser now. (Not.)
Helen Dallimore is going to take London by storm, but she’s not our only export. Over at the Adelphi, Philip Quast is giving a typically strong turn as Peron in the new production of Evita. I loved the grungy look of the show, and new exciting Latin orchestrations bring it alive. Bongos and sleazy trumpets! Arriba! The girl(s) playing Evita make Madonna look like she’s lip-synching. I’m no huge Andrew Lloyd Webber fan, but Evita was written when he still had more than one musical idea at a time.
In Philip’s dressing room I met Broadway show writer/composer Jason Robert Brown. Such a nice Jewish boy. He had flown over to see The Last Five Years, which is on at a theatre made out of a chocolate factory. This is a much smaller piece, a two-hander about a couple who split up. (There was a local production at the Stables not long ago.) The big noise in the London production is the boy, Damian Humbly. He’s cute, cheeky, energetic, lovable, an amazing singer and guess what else? Yep. One of ours. (One of WAAPA’s, in fact.) He did a few things in Melbourne, such as MTC’s Urinetown, then wandered over here and straight into major roles.
How do we do it? Are we better than the English? Well, maybe we’re better at being Americans than they are. Whatever that says about us – and I’m not sure it’s a compliment – there’s no question that when it comes to shows, this is our town, baby.
09:56 am I'm getting photoshop for FREE on thursday. I just love being friends with my art teachers!!!

I hate falling for straight women......it sucks. Does anyone know where i can buy 'Gaydar'? Because i dont own it.........
Concerning my crush.She will be called.......hmmm....... 'Miss Beautiful' for this story...
Ok. I had been crushing on Miss Beautiful for a couple weeks. I caught myself just watching her when she would talk or was concentrating on a sculpture or paper.....and im pretty sure she saw me staring a couple times....i couldn't help it. She is truely beautiful. Any ways, i would find as many excuses to talk to her or be near her, and we slowly became friends. Then......after about oh a month and harmless flirting(which by the way, she would flirt back...probably unknowingly...but still, it was there)I had decided to tell her. Well i lost my nerve and ended up writing her a letter...(yes I know....grade school techniques) So i slipped it in her purse and left. About a half hour later i got a text from her and such.... she said a bunch of sweet things and said she had to think about it and would get back to me.......then summer happened, and i hadn't heard anything from her. Now i went back to the school to pick up a couple sculptures and Miss Beautiful saw me and started a convo with me. Immediately all the emotions and feelings towards her came back three fold and i wanted to kiss her sooooooooooooo bad!!!! But yea. I got shy and quite and smiled way too much. But Miss Beautiful said that she saw this store that she thought i would love and said that she would bring me there. Then she said that she would call me. The whole time i barely said anything......I dont like how much power she has over my emotions already!!!!! GAH!!!!!!!!!! I wish i knew how this would end up......I was surprised she even had my number still......but at least she was thinking of me right???? Just tell me im crazy and she's out of my league and i'll drop the subject now........................

05:20 pm "Working on the Inside," a new book by theatre journalist Retta Blaney, takes a look at the point where the seemingly disparate worlds of acting and religion meet. The volume, which is subtitled "The Spiritual Life Through the Eyes of Actors," was recently published by Sheed & Ward. Blaney talked to actors ranging from Kristin Chenoweth, whose Oklahoma Southern Baptist upbringing has been widely written about, to Edward Herrmann, who is a convert from Unitarianism to Catholicism. Others interviewed include the Irish Catholic Liam Neeson, the Jewish Dudu Fisher, the Catholic Vanessa Williams and the Baptist Michael McElroy. Blaney also interviewed a variety of religious leaders. Blaney is a bit of an anomaly, a journalist whose areas of specialization are theatre and religion. She has written for Back Stage and American Theatre, but also National Catholic Reporter and The Jewish Week. Her previous book was "Journalism Stories from the Real World," a collection of essays. In her introduction to the book, the author states that she got the idea for the project after years of interviews with actors. She noticed that, time and again, the actors would bring up the subject of their spiritual life—a tendency she hadn't observed among members of any other profession.
11:19 pm - more news "Laura Benanti, Kristin Chenoweth, Barbara Cook, and Patti LuPone are among the stars set to participate in Celebrate Sondheim, a benefit for the Westport Country Playhouse to be held at the theater on September 25. The show will be directed by John Doyle, who won a Tony Award for his direction of the current revival of Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd (starring LuPone) and whose Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park production of Sondheim's Company is due on Broadway this fall. Sondheim served as a summer intern at the famed Playhouse in 1950. Over the course of his career, he has won 11 Tony Awards as well as the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. In addition to Company, New York will see a concert staging of his 1971 musical Follies as part of the upcoming City Center Encores! season.
The Playhouse's current attraction is David Wiltse's A Marriage Minuet, starring Patricia Kalember. It will be followed later this month by a production of Arthur Miller's The Archbishop's Ceiling, starring David Rasche and directed by Gregory Mosher.
Tickets to the benefit are priced at $500 (including a pre-show cocktail party) and $1000-$2000 (including the cocktail party and a post-show dinner). They can be ordered by calling 203-227-5137, ext. 138. For more information, visit www.westportplayhouse.org. "

"The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) held its 22nd annual gala dinner and awards ceremony, “Bridges to Equality,” at Moscone Center South on July 29. Ticket sales supported HRC’s political work to make certain that LGBT Americans are ensured of their basic equal rights, to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all. Three awards were given. Actress and Tony award winner Kristin Chenoweth received an Equality Award. She will shortly be seen in the screen adaptation of Running with Scissors, where she will play Annette Bening’s lesbian mother. In the new biographical movie about Dusty Springfield, she promises to honestly include Springfield’s sexuality. Chenoweth was dis-invited from a Woman of Faith Conference in Oklahoma when they heard of her belief that God is accepting of all people on earth, and her saying she believed gays and lesbians should not be denied a place in the faith community."
