Did you miss her? We did! Lesli Margherita is moving across the street from Matilda to Dames at Sea, and she’s bringing her vlogging camera with her! Get all hands on deck for Ship Happens: Backstage at Dames at Sea with Lesli Margherita.
The Looks Not Books queen, stripped of her blonde curly wig and thrown into tap shoes, will once again give us a glimpse of behind-the-scenes life, this time at the Helen Hayes Theatre. Expect appearances from her nautical co-stars Eloise Kropp, Mara Davi, John Bolton, Cary Tedder and Danny Gardner. Let’s hope they know the Q&A theme song.
Margherita, who plays Mona Kent in the musical, won an Olivier Award for her performance in Zorro in the West End. In addition to her “Loud” Broadway debut in Matilda, her previous stage credits include Man of La Mancha, Showboat and Little Shop of Horrors.
Ship Happens sets sail on September 23 and will run every Wednesday for eight weeks.
