Publisher's Summary

In this frank and funny memoir, the Tony Award-winning star of stage and screen shares her journey from small-town Oklahoma to big-time Broadway, vamping on what it takes to stand firmly on a foundation of family and faith while wearing a hot pair of Jimmy Choo platform sling-backs.

Filled with wit, wisdom, and backstage insight, A Little Bit Wicked is an essential read for Kristin's legions of fans and an uplifting story for anyone seeking to follow their dreams - over the rainbow and beyond.

Critic Reviews

"To use her phrase, this book is 'a hoot and a holler' - a fast-paced frolic that her fans will appreciate. (Publishers Weekly)

Salt of the Earth + Sparkles

What a fun listen! Kristen performs this audiobook in her doll of a voice, and she had me in a smile and a giggle the whole way through. She's the best combo of down-home goodness and stage talent since Dolly Parton. Even though she's a star, it's her message that shines through: faith, family, and friends come first.

such a delightful personality

Bought on Audible
Actual Rating 4.5 Wine Glasses

What I Loved: Kristin Chenoweth is just such a delightful personality. She has great stories from her life both professionally and personally. I don't feel like she held anything back! She does it with such poise, humor, and a little wink/nudge to her friends. This was like getting a glimpse into what I think is one of the most down-to-earth celebrities there is today. It might be her southern roots but you just feel like she is someone you could sit down, have dinner, and chat about day to day stuff.

What I Liked: Her friends, family, and moments that just made me giggle hysterically! I love that she tackled everything faith, failed relationships, the theater, her friends, and hair mishaps.

Audio Specific Review: Kristen read, sang, and giggled her way through reading this! It was fantastic and the way I would suggest getting this book.

Why I gave it a 4.5: It was 7 hours of just plain fun!

Who would I recommend it too: Kristin Chenoweth fans

get it and become a fan

I love Kristin Chenoweth and really enjoyed A Little Bit Wicked. I felt she did a great job narrating it herself and really making it interesting for the listeners. It was a great blend of humor, sadness, and faith. I love that she sticks to her beliefs in an industry that makes it really hard to stand up for what you believe. The only complaint I have is that it was too short. I could have listened to another 5 hours. I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Kristin Chenoweth or even if you are not get it and become a fan.

Not the same Kristin seen on Talk Shows

Purchased this for two reasons;
1. Recommendation from TWIT guest
2. I love her voice and character in the TV series "West Wing"
Kristin's voice and dry sense of humor makes this book most enjoyable. Humor at ever turn and little tag lines throughout the book coupled with a behind the scenes look at what it really takes to make it on Broadway.

Adorable from start to finish

I've been a fan since "A New Brain" in the late 1990s. This is a great book with lots of fun stories and insight. I can't wait for her next memoir!

Wonderful

If you could sum up A Little Bit Wicked in three words, what would they be?

Uplifting, Fun, Wise.

What other book might you compare A Little Bit Wicked to and why?

Debbie, my life.

Which character – as performed by Kristin Chenoweth – was your favorite?

Well in the book she is herself but I love Galinda/Glinda from Wicked.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Good people have stories too.

Any additional comments?

I put off reading this book from some negative comments in reviews saying it is boring and not a real book. What bull! This is one of the best books I have read. She is a really sweet person and has had a hell of a life. She brings you into her story and you won't be able to put the book down. This book makes you feel so good and not in a preachy way. I really loved the book and like Miss. Chenoweth even more than before.

I love that she read this with energy and wit. This is a true behind-the-scenes view of her life, Broadway, and the acting life.

Sweet book for a sweet girl

I'm seeing Kristin perform in March and wanted to know more of her personal back history. I'm glad I did, she's lived a touched life and seems to freely express her gratitude for that.

Amazing!

I have recently become a big fan of Kristin Chenoweth and listening to her biography only made me a bigger one! Candid, funny, and narrated by herself! I've listened to it twice already and loved every minute! From adoring fans to those who want an insight into someones journey to their own success I could not recommend this more!

Witty and funny with a great insight into the arts

Where does A Little Bit Wicked rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is not a sci-if dramatic read by any sorts like I usually get, but I have an interest in dance and the arts, and I have seen the musical WICKED. This book oozes personality, charisma and is light hearted fun.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the way that life experiences have been given a positive outlook. This is not a trait strongly known for British people like myself and it is inspiring to hear. I liked that the book had a LOT of content and details into the authors life. At times there was me,an holy and sadness which was noted but not described. Sometimes she wants to keep some personal things private which is a testament to the people in her life that she wants to speak about in her story, but not to expose them in any negative way.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The snippets about her singing teacher in her early days

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Little lady, big voice; here comes Kirstin!

Any additional comments?

I don't particularly like chick flicks or love stories so this was my alternative. For anyone interested in Broadway or dance or singing or to personalities this would be great for you. It is inspirational written from a woman's perspective for women and girls everywhere. Although the journey is not 100% relatable (not all of us get to be Broadway stars), the life lessons learnt and the personal journey is very much so.
