Theater People Podcast Welcomes MATILDA's 'Queen' Lesli Margherita

On Monday, June 30th the Theater People Podcast welcomes "Matilda" star Lesli Margherita. Topics discussed include her Olivier award winning turn as Inez in "Zorro The Musical" in London's West End, the day her friend Eden Espinosa called her to insist that Lesli be seen for the role of Mrs. Wormwood in "Matilda", and her emotional Broadway debut in the show. The episode is available now to iTunes subscribers.

Lesli also shares memories of growing up on a horse farm, starring in the short lived Kenny Ortaga helmed TV show "Fame LA", her two year journey bringing "Zorro" from workshop to production, and her love of her kid-actor "Matilda" costars.
