This week we're backstage on Broadway with Vicki Lewis, the beltingest redhead Must-See TV ever did see. You Might Know Her From NewsRadio, Mouse Hunt, Finding Nemo, Pushing Tin, and the Broadway productions of Anastasia, Chicago, and Damn Yankees. We dish with Vicki about moving back to New York, losing Phil Hartman, holding Dixie Carter’s spit cup, and working with Matthew Broderick + a giant green screen on the blockbuster, Godzilla (she also delivers a pitch perfect impression of director, Roland Emmerich).
