UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. (AP) — In the steadily escalating battle of the TV musicals, NBC's "Hairspray Live!" is the most ambitious contender yet.
It's got a deep bench of stars, including Kristin Chenoweth, Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande and Martin Short. It boasts strong themes of racial equality, tolerance and self-acceptance. And it has the outsized, joyful talents of Harvey Fierstein as writer and actor, reprising his Tony Award-winning role as Edna Turnblad.
NEW YORK (AP) — Tony- and Emmy Award-winner Kristin Chenoweth will deliver some must-have songs when she takes to a Broadway stage Wednesday. But she also promises some intriguing curveballs.

NEW YORK (AP) — "Glee" and "Wicked" star Kristin Chenoweth is returning to Broadway this fall for a series of concerts celebrating the history of the Great White Way in what she vows will be a different show each time because the songs will change every night.
"I'm going to do my best to represent our community," she said Tuesday by phone, "and just as you can imagine, I'm going to try to do it all. So, if you would go ahead and start your prayers, that would be amazing."
