Lesli Margherita (born May 10, 1973) is an American stage and screen actress. In 2009, she won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Performance in a Supporting Role in a Musical for her performance as Inez in Helen Edmundson's musical, Zorro.[1]


Margherita was born and raised in California and graduated from UCLA.[2]

Upon graduation she appeared in the TV show Fame L.A.. Her television credits include NYPD Blue, The District, On the Lot, The Suite Life on Deck, Major Crimes and Donny!.[1][2]


Margherita played Inez in Helen Edmundson's musical Zorro in the West End in 2008, winning the 2009 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Performance in a Supporting Role in a Musical.[3] The Guardian reviewer wrote: "...the most flamboyant display of personality comes from Lesli Margherita who as Inez flashes her eyes and other parts of her anatomy with the gayest abandon."[4]

She appeared as Mrs. Wormwood in the Broadway production of Matilda the Musical, from March 2013 to September 2015 and again starting in September 2016.[5]

She played the role of Mona Kent in the Broadway premiere of Dames at Sea which opened in October 2015.[6] The USA review noted: "the actress plays the tyrannical vamp with infectious relish."[7]

She appeared as Cindy Lou Who in the Off-Broadway one person Who's Holiday! in November and December 2017.[2][8] She was nominated for the 2018 Drama Desk Award, Outstanding Solo Performance; 2018 Lucille Lortel Award, Outstanding Solo Show; and 2018 Off Broadway Alliance Award, Best Solo Performance.[9]

In regional theatre, she appeared in Spamalot at the Sacramento Music Circus as The Lady of the Lake in 2010.[10][11] She appeared as Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors at La Mirada Theatre, La Mirada, California, in April to May 2011.[12] In July to September 2011 she appeared at the Goodspeed Opera House, East Haddam, Connecticut in Show Boat as Julie.[13] She appears in the new musical The Flamingo Kid at the Hartford Stage, Connecticut, in May to June 2019. The Variety reviewer wrote: "Also standing out is Lesli Margherita as Phyllis, Phil’s long-suffering snob of a wife, who gets every laugh effortlessly with her deadpan delivery. She also nails her second act number, a good song with a terrible title..."[14] From January 19, 2020 to March 19, 2020, Lesli will star as "Princess" in Emojiland at Duke on 42nd Street theater in New York City.[15]


She performed her concert/cabaret act at The Green Room 42 in New York City in December 2018.[2]
