Kristin Chenoweth Is Thrilled to Make History With Andrew Lippa in I Am Harvey Milk

Sep 27, 2014 • posted by Colleen | with No Comments | in News

Kristin Chenoweth is set to lead a one-night concert performance of composer/lyricist Andrew Lippa’s hybrid choral/theatrical work (or oratorio) I Am Harvey Milk on October 6. The event, described as “an emotional celebration” of the eponymous American icon, stars Chenoweth alongside Lippa at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall.
Harvey Milk became the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in California when he won a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1978. Milk, who was an advocate for gay rights while in office, was assassinated along with Mayor George Moscone only 11 months after Milk’s election. “I Am Harvey Milk is an ode to a man who tried single-handedly to change the world,” Chenoweth told TheaterMania.

Remember Me Thursday is Sept 25th

Sep 13, 2014 • posted by Colleen | with No Comments | in News

Last year Mike Arms, president of Helen Woodward Animal Center, came up with an idea to help thousands of cats and dogs around the country. The resulting event, Remember Me Thursday, garnered lots of support from celebrities in movies, television, the stage, sports, and among many animal advocates.

This year, Remember Me Thursday (set for September 25) has drawn an impressive roster of celebrities to help homeless animals find their forever homes. Headlining the event is actress Katherine Heigl, a major advocate for homeless dogs. She will soon be starring in the NBC drama series State of Affairs this fall.

“Every day in America, 10,000 pets are killed for lack of a good home,” she said. “It is important to not forget those animals who have been euthanized in our shelters across America and to focus on those still waiting for a home. Remember Me Thursday is our opportunity to bring to light these homeless pets and I am honored to be the spokesperson for such an important and powerful message.”

Heigl will be joined by Alan Cumming, Diane Keaton, Kristin Chenoweth, Kathy Najimy, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Eric Roberts, Ian Somerhalder, Sara Rue, Beth Stern, and Carrie Ann Inaba. In the world of sports, Anze Kopitar, David Backes, Jeff Carter, and Mark Buehrle and animal behaviorists Jackson Galaxy and Tamar Geller will all come together to light candles and lend their voices to raise awareness on cat and dog adoption.
