Bebe Neuwirth: Look, you guys, you guys are freaks, man. I'm not Lilith, I'm Bebe. I'm an actress. I sing. I'm a Broadway dancer. Look at these pins. You know any 40-year-olds who can wrap their legs around their necks? Look, these babies worked for me before Frasier, they're gonna work for me afterwards. So don't you worry about Lilith.
Karen: You mean Bebe.
Bebe: No, I mean Lilith. I want to play that bitch forever!... Frasier is such an easy gig, man! They fly you first class to Los Angeles, put you up in the Bel Air Hotel, per diem. I deliver several lines in a robotic monotone and I'm buyin' a new Lexus!Beatrice "Bebe" Neuwirth has been around Hollywood and Broadway awhile.Trained as a dancer, Neuwirth made her New York debut in A Chorus Line and later won awards for her roles in revivals of Sweet Charity and Chicago. It helped that she had previously worked with Bob Fosse.However, most of the world knows her as Dr. Lilith Sternin of Cheers fame. Some might also know her as Determinator EADA Tracey Kibre of the short-lived Law & Order: Trial by Jury.She also headlined The Addams Family Musical on Broadway as Morticia Addams, opposite Nathan Lane.Despite her age, she has no reservations on donning lingerie - or leotards - for her roles. And her father was a professor at Princeton — all this and brains too! And gams of course.
