'The Poddest Couple' Podcast Premieres with Theatrical Bickering, Dreamcasting, and Her Royal highness, Queen Lesli Margherita
On the premiere episode of the new theatre podcast, "The Poddest Couple," BroadwayWorld's Alan Henry and Matt Tamanini argue over the recently announced RENT: LIVE on FOX and the in development big screen adaptation of WICKED.
The two put their bickering aside for a while in order to talk to theatrical royalty, Queen Lesli Margherita. In an honest and open interview, Lesli talks about how she developed her love of theatre growing up on a California cattle farm, how she earned her royal title, her love for GROUNDHOG DAY and STAR WARS, and much much more.
Lesli received the Laurence Olivier Award for her performance in ZORRO THE MUSICAL in London's West End, before originating the role of Mrs. Wormwood in MATILDA on Broadway, and playing Mona Kent in the original Broadway production of DAMES AT SEA. She has also performed at regional theatres around the country, as well as on screens large and small.
