Chenoweth Details Bizarre Stage Moments In Memoir
Actress KRISTIN CHENOWETH had a shocking return to Broadway for her 1998 run in YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN - when security had to escort a man out of the theatre for pleasuring himself.
The Tony Award winner starred as Charlie's little sister Sally in the production, one year after making her Broadway debut - and admits she's experienced a host of awkward moments during her acting career.
Recounting the jaw-dropping moments in a new memoir, A Little Bit Wicked, she writes: "Once the security officers had to drag a guy out of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown because he was masturbating during (the song) My New Philosophy."
And although Chenoweth insists her experiences on the New York stage haven't always been so lewd, she admits theatre acting can bring a new set of challenges.
She adds: "I remember a performance of The Fantasticks where a mom brought a teenage son with Tourette's syndrome to the show. It was explained to me that because he liked me a lot, it became especially difficult for him to control his outbursts when I came on stage... Every time I said or sang anything, he would snort, howl or bellow some expletive about bodily functions or female anatomy... (and drop) F-bombs."
The book is scheduled to hit shelves in April (09).
