A versatile actress who has displayed a talent for both comedy and drama, Bebe Neuwirth is also a gifted dancer and vocalist. While she has won acclaim for her work on the musical stage, she's still best known to television viewers as Lilith Sternin, Frazier Crane's tightly wound girlfriend (and later wife) on the popular comedy "Cheers." Born Beatrice Neuwirth, she was raised in Princeton, NJ, by her mathematician father and artist mother. Bebe began taking dance lessons at the age of five and, while a student at Princeton High School, she began appearing in local ballet productions and community theater productions. After high school, Neuwirth studied dance at New York's prestigious Juilliard School and in 1980 she made her professional debut as Sheila, a once-famous dancer looking to make a comeback, in a touring production of the long-running musical A Chorus Line.
In Cleveland to perform at Wired! ignite + invent + imagine, the grand opening celebration of Idea Center at Playhouse Square, Ms. Neuwirth will be singing a repertoire of some of the most beloved songs from Broadway.
