While she figured it would eventually be released online, Chenoweth was overwhelmed by fans’ fevered reaction. “I don’t know why I was surprised,” she says, “but I thought, ‘Oh, it’s not that big of a deal.’ It was cool to see people still love it.”
Admittedly, Chenoweth hasn’t revisited the production, which
is still running on Broadway, outside of one performance shortly after she
left. “I saw my friend in it,” she says. “I realized I had never seen the show.” However, the performer
does have plans to return to the George Gershwin Theatre in New York City, but won’t
reveal when. “I’m definitely going to go and see the show again,” she adds.

When it comes to the current season of Broadway, which will see
the best honored during the 2016 Tony Awards on Sunday, June 12, Chenoweth is
most excited about Hamilton, which
earned a record-breaking 16 nominations. “Hamilton
is going to win everything,” she says, gushing over Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit
musical about Alexander Hamilton.
