Tony winner BETH LEAVEL is back on Broadway in The Prom. She is playing Dee Dee Allen, a delightfully narcissistic, Tony-touting Broadway diva. Not unlike her Prom evil twin, Great White Way powerhouse Leavel oozes fabulous, but Leavel credits her worker bee mentality for her success. Her many Broadway credits iclude 42nd Street, Crazy For You, Mamma Mia!, Elf, The Drowsy Chaperone (for which she won her Tony Award) and more. She recently stopped by Show People with Paul Wontorek to talk about her incredible career, that time her son booked the gig she went in for and more.
