All Hail the Queen! This week the Broadwaysted crew is holding court with the beautiful and fantastic Lesli Margherita! All Hail the Queen! This week the Broadwaysted crew is holding court with the beautiful and fantastic Lesli Margherita! We pour out some Maker's Mark and chat about Lesli's wild experience winning the Olivier Award for her West End debut as well as her current gig recreating her original turn in Matilda the Musical on Broadway. Lesli dishes about the ironic text message she got about Cats, her Star Wars wedding and ranking of the seven films in the franchise, and the time she died twice on stage (I smell a rat!). Kimberly recently attended Miss America and informs us all about the 'Show Us Your Shoes' parade and the entire group casts a fantasy version of Real Housewives of Broadway with famous wife characters. We play Lights of Broadway Show Cards 'Heads Up!' and Lesli shares her story about working on stage with artist and #FriendOfTheShow Squigs. (more...)
