Lesli Margherita to Bring BROAD to Birdland in July
Brassy. Ballsy. Bawdy.....BROAD.
Olivier Award Winner Lesli M
argherita (Matilda, Dames at Sea) returns to Birdland for an encore performance of her 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, 40s and 50s that landed many of the women who sang them in hot water...just the way they liked it.
Written by Margherita, the evening will be directed by Lauren Bass, with musical direction & arrangements by Brett Ryback and produced by Jordan & Lauren Bass.
An Olivier Award winner for her West End debut as Inez in Zorro the Musical, Margherita made her Broadway debut originating the role of Mrs. Wormwood in Matilda the Musical and most recently originated the role of diva Mona Kent in the Broadway premiere of Dames at Sea.
