Good Cheno-Bits: Kristin Chenoweth Brings Broadway to Hillside Park Memorial Church on GCB
Kristin Chenoweth in 'GCB'
Kristin Chenoweth brings the Great White Way to Dallas on 'GCB.'

Hallelujah! Kristin Chenoweth enlists the help of a few of her Broadway buddies on this week’s episode of GCB, which features the premiere of Hillside Park Memorial Church's very own original musical, The Miracles of Jesus. Naturally, head mean girl Carlene Cockburn (Chenoweth) assumes she’ll play the lead. But when she’s re-cast as a Leper, Carlene suspects her rival Amanda has something to do with it. The episode features Broadway cameos by The Lion King alum Mark Deklin as Lazarus (singing “It’s a Miracle” by Barry Manilow), Bare favorite Michael Arden as Reverend Steve Stewart, and of course, an operatic rap battle between Carlene and Cricket. We’ve sorted out the best Cheno-Bits from this week’s holy episode below.
