And a Happy Birthday shout-out to Bebe Neuwirth, who turns 62 today!

Wake Up With BWW 12/31: Ring in the New Year With Aaron Tveit, and More!

Neuwirth studied dance at the Juilliard School in New York City before making her professional debut in a touring company of A Chorus Line in 1980.She made her TV debut on the hit sitcom "Cheers" as Lilith Sternin-Crane, wife of Dr. Frasier Crane, the role for which she won an Emmy Award and an American Comedy Award for Funniest Female Guest Appearance in a Television Series. When offered a regular role on "Frasier," she turned it down and returned to the stage where she won her first Tony in 1986 as Best Actress (Featured Role - Musical) for playing Nicki in a revival of Sweet Charity. She has played all three of the principle female roles in the long-running Broadway Revival of Chicago. She was in the revival's original cast as Velma Kelly (for which she won the Tony). In 2007, Neuwirth did a stint as Roxie Hart, and in 2014, she returned to the show again, this time playing Warden "Mama" Morton. She has appeared in many films, including Jumanji, Say Anything and Summer of Sam and in countless television appearances including a recent recurring role on "Madam Secretary."


See you in the New Year, BroadwayWorld!
