YOU I LIKE Cast To Reunite For On The Rocks Podcast

Broadway's Lesli Margherita (Matilda, Dames at Sea), Nicholas Christopher (Hamilton, Miss Saigon), and Musical Director Andy Einhorn (Hello, Dolly, Carousel) will appear on On the Rocks Radio Show Tuesday, January 19th at 7pmPST/10pmEST with host TV/radio personality Alexander Rodriguez and guest co-host Erik Altemus (Pippin) for an in-depth chat about You I Like: A Musical Celebration of Jerry Herman, currently streaming on PlayhouseLIVE.

You I Like, conceived and music directed by Andy Einhorn, marks the first theatrical tribute to Jerry Herman by a professional theater company since the passing of this Tony Award-winning Broadway legend one year ago. Members of the cast are reuniting for On the Rocks to discuss the work of Jerry Herman, theatre during COVID, and their individual careers.

Andy Einhorn is a leading Broadway music director and conductor and most recently served as the music supervisor and musical director for the Broadway productions of Hello, Dolly! starring Bette Midler and Carousel starring Renée Fleming.

She made her Broadway debut originating the role of Mrs. Wormwood in Matilda The Musical, and after over 1000 performances, bid farewell to the Matilda company and crossed the street to The Helen Hayes to star as the diva Mona Kent in the Broadway premiere of Dames At Sea. Lesli later returned to her iconic performance in Matilda to close out its Broadway run.

Off-Broadway credits include her hilarious, show-stopping performance as Cindy Lou Who in the one-woman tour-de-force Who's Holiday, which earned her critical acclaim as well as a Drama Desk nomination for Outstanding Solo Performance, a Lortel nomination for Outstanding Solo Show and an Off- Broadway Alliance nomination for Best Solo Performance.
