She was engaged to American actor Marc Kudisch from 1998 to 2001 and has been romantically linked to numerous Hollywood men including Dana Brunetti, Seth Green, Lane Garrison, and Aaron Sorkin.

Kristin Dawn Chenoweth was born on July 24th, 1968 in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. She was adopted when she was five days old by Junie Smith Chenoweth and Jerry Morris Chenoweth, who both worked as chemical engineers. She has stated that she is one quarter Cherokee. As an adult, she met her biological mother whose uncle had seen Chenoweth on a late-night talk show a decade earlier and commented on their resemblance. She showed an interest in music and performing at a young age, and she would sing gospel songs at local churches. At the age of twelve, she performed at the Southern Baptist Convention where she sang the Evie song “Four Feet Eleven,” which is her actual height. She attended Broken Arrow High School where she was active in the school’s theater department. After graduating, she attended Oklahoma City College, which is a small private Christian college. She was a member of the Gamma Phi Beta sorority, and she participated in beauty pageants, winning the title of Miss Oklahoma City University. In 1990, she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in musical theatre but remained at the school to obtain a master’s degree. She was the second runner-up for the title of Miss Oklahoma in 1991, and in 1992, she completed her master’s degree in opera performance.
Chenoweth has dated several high-profile actors including Dana Brunetti, Seth Green, and Lane Garrison but has not married. In 2009, she published a memoir A Little Bit Wicked. She has been open about her Christian faith but has described herself as socially liberal. She suffers from an inner ear condition called Ménière’s disease that causes vertigo, and it has caused her to sometimes need to use her cast members for balance on stage.
She performed at The Lyric theater in Oklahoma City while finishing her master’s degree, and she occasionally travelled to play at regional theaters. Her early theater work includes roles in “Gone with the Wing,” “Promises, Promises,” and “The King and I.” She won the title of “Most Promising Up-and-coming Singer” by the Metropolitan Opera National Council auditions in 1992. The prize came with the title in addition to a full scholarship to the Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia. Prior to her classes beginning, she went to New York City to help a friend move, and she auditioned for a part in the Paper Mills Playhouse production “Animal Crackers.” Once she got the part, she decided to turn down the scholarship and moved to New York to pursue a career in musical theater.
She spent the nineties acting in regional productions and Off-Broadway plays including “Babes in Arms,” “Phantom,” “The Fantasticks,” and “Box Office of the Damned.” Her Broadway debut came in 1997 with a role in the musical “Steel Pier,” and for her performance, she was awarded a Theatre World Award. In 1999, she appeared in the Broadway revival “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown,” starring as the title character’s younger sister. She won the Tony and Drama Desk award for her performance. She also made her television debut in 1999 with a role in the mini-series “Paramour” and an appearance on the children’s series “The Wonderful World of Disney.” In 2003, she became known to mainstream audiences with her role as Glinda in the Broadway play “Wicked.”
