Bebe Neuwirth is an American actress, musician and dancer. She has worked in television and is known for her portrayal of Dr. Lilith Sternin, Dr. Frasier Crane's wife (later ex-wife), on both the TV sitcom "Cheers," and its spin-off "Frasier." On stage, she is also known for the role of Nickie in the revival of "Sweet Charity," the role of Velma Kelly in the revival of "Chicago" (for both of which she won Tony Awards) and for the role of Morticia Addams in "The Addams Family" musical.
Neuwirth studied ballet at Juilliard in New York City in 1976 and 1977, during which time she performed with the Princeton Ballet Company in "Peter and the Wolf," "The Nutcracker" and "Coppélia," also appearing in community theater musicals.
Neuwirth made her Broadway debut in the role of Sheila in "A Chorus Line" in 1980. She later appeared in revivals of "Little Me," "Sweet Charity," for which she won the Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical, and "Damn Yankees." 1996 saw her play Velma Kelly in the Broadway revival of "Chicago." That role brought her her greatest stage recognition to date, and several awards including the Tony Award, Drama Desk Award and Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Leading Actress in a Musical. Neuwirth would later return to the still-running revival of "Chicago" in 2006, this time as Roxie Hart.
Her screen credits include "Green Card," "Bugsy," "Say Anything...," "Jumanji," "Summer of Sam," "Liberty Heights," "Tadpole" (for which the Seattle Film Critics named her Best Supporting Actress), "The Associate," "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days," "Malice," "The Big Bounce," "The Faculty" and Woody Allen's "Celebrity."
On television, from 1986 to 1993 Neuwirth played Dr. Lilith Sternin, who married Dr. Frasier Crane on the hit comedy series "Cheers." She won two Emmy Awards for the role, in 1990 and 1991. The character also made an appearance in the series "Wings" and in 12 episodes of the Cheers spin-off "Frasier," which earned her a 1995 Emmy Award nomination as Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series.
In 2009, she co-starred as Ms. Kraft in the remake of "Fame." She recently had a recurring role as Caroline, the literary editor of Jonathan Ames, on the HBO series "Bored to Death."
