NEW YORK (AP) -- Oklahoma native Kristin Chenoweth will return to Broadway in December to star in a revival of "The Apple Tree."

The production consists of three one-act musicals based on short stories by Mark Twain, Frank R. Stockton and Jules Feiffer. They're all tied together by a common theme: the consequences of temptation.

The production opens December 14th at Studio 54 in New York City.

The musical originally played New York in 1966 with a cast headed by Barbara Harris, Larry Blyden and Alan Alda. It ran for 463 performances.

Chenoweth -- a native of Broken Arrow who studied at Oklahoma City University -- starred in a City Center production of the play last year. She received laudatory reviews for her performance.
