Bebe Neuwirth is an American actress.


Born Beatrice Neuwirth in Newark, New Jersey, she studied ballet from five and trained at Juillard, before appearing with the Princeton Ballet Company in a number of shows. In 1980 she made her Broadway debut, and won the Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical. In 1986 she gained her greatest screen success, appearing as Dr. Lilith Sternin-Crane in Cheers and its spin-off Frasier.

Neuwirth remained most commonly associated with musical theatre, and won several awards for her part as Velma Kelly in Chicago. She also provided voices for a number of animated features, including All Dogs Go to Heaven 2 and An Extremely Goofy Movie.


Neuwirth has a large amount of musical theatre credits to her name, making her debut in A Chorus Line in the role of Lois and later that of Sheila. She would go on to have supporting roles in Sweet Charity, whilst also singing on several occasions on Cheers. Neuwirth also played Velma Kelly in the 1992 revival of Chicago and some years later would also play both Roxie Hart and Mama Morton.

Neuwirth would also sing in several of her screen roles, as the voice of the devilish Belladonna in All Dogs Go to Heaven: The Series and An All Dogs Christmas Special, as well as releasing several albums beginning with Porcelain in 2011. She appeared in Here Lies Jenny, a show based around the character Jenny Diver from The Threepenny Opera, and originated the role of Morticia Addams in The Addams Family musical.
