Beatrice "Bebe" Neuwirth (born December 31, 1958 in Newark, New Jersey) 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 the Determinator EADA Tracey Kibre of Law & Order: Trial by Jury, or as Faith O'Connor, Mike Olshansky's girlfriend in Hack. Younger viewers may remember her from the sequel and TV series to All Dogs Go to Heaven as both Annabelle the archangel and her demonic cousin Belladonna, as well as from Cartoon Network's Over the Garden Wall as Marguerrite Grey.
She also headlined The Addams Family on Broadway as Morticia Addams, opposite Nathan Lane. A failed television pilot starring Bebe, Dear Diary, was shown in theaters and won an Academy Award for short film.
As of 2014, she portrays Nadine Tolliver, Secretary McCord's Chief of Staff, on Madam Secretary.
