Currently, Chenoweth is starring with Sean Hayes  in the Broadway revival of "Promises, Promises." She also recently returned to the Fox series "Glee" with a guest appearance as boozy April Rhodes.

After making her Broadway debut in "Steel Pier" in 1997, Chenoweth received a 1999 Tony Award for playing Sally in "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" and a 2004 Tony nomination for playing Glinda in "Wicked."

Besides "Glee," Chenoweth's television credits include her Emmy-winning work as waitress Olive Snook on ABC's "Pushing Daisies" and a recurring role as media consultant-turned-deputy press secretary Annabeth Schott on NBC's "The West Wing."

She also has appeared in movies including "Bewitched," "Running With Scissors" and the 2006 version of "The Pink Panther."

A classically trained opera singer, Chenoweth is a concert and recording artist with a repertoire that includes pop, Christian music and show tunes.

The New Year's Eve shows will begin at 7 and 10:30 p.m.
