Lesli Margherita at Feinstein's at the Nikko
Mae West. Sophie Tucker. Lesli Margherita. Brassy. Ballsy. Bawdy….BROAD.Olivier Award Winner Lesli Margherita (Dames at Sea, Matilda) stars in her brand new solo show BROAD -- an evening celebrating the controversial women of yesteryear: Women who knew how to serve it up and dish it out. Women who took no prisoners and gave no apologies. With heart, humor, and more than a dash of seduction, Margherita takes center stage delivering racy and rare gems from the 20s, 30s and 40s that landed many of the women who sang them in hot water…just the way they liked it. Conceived & written by Margherita, the show will be directed & produced by Lauren Bass with musical direction & arrangements by Brett Ryback.
Olivier Award winner for her West End debut as Inez in Zorro the Musical, Lesli made her Broadway debut originating the role of Mrs. Wormwood in Matilda the Musical. After 1000 performances, she bid farewell to the Broadway company of Matilda and was most recently seen as the diva Mona Kent in the Broadway premiere of Randy Skinner's Dames at Sea.
Born and raised in the Bay Area, Lesli trained at UCLA and was soon after chosen to star in MGM's television series "Fame LA" directed by Kenny Ortega. She has gone on to star and recur on numerous television shows and pilots including "Donny!", "The Good Wife", "Major Crimes", "The Suite Life On Deck", "Charmed", "NYPD Blue", and "On The Lot", produced by Steven Spielberg.
Film credits include the upcoming movie musical 'Opening Night' opposite Topher Grace & Taye Diggs, 'Lucky Stiff' with Jason Alexander, Joel Schumacher's 'The Number 23', and the Sam Raimi produced 'Boogeyman 2'. Lesli's voice can also be heard on several animated films and shows including Disney's 'Cinderella 3' and Nickelodeon's "Sponge Bob Squarepants".
