Lilith, Fair

Freudian, insanely pale, poker-faced comedy gold: Actress Bebe Neuwirth has become, in the collective psyche of American television, inseparable from Dr. Lilith Sternin-Crane, the ever-sober psychiatrist wife (and then ex-wife) of America's favorite shrink, Dr. Frasier Crane, on Cheers and its Frasier spin-off.

Theatergoers will catch a glimpse of the actress behind the deadpan as Neuwirth performs some of her favorite songs in her one-woman cabaret show, Stories with Piano. Though it may have slipped into our unconscious, we didn't forget that she's also a two-time Tony Award winning Broadway star who made Velma Kelly murderous in Chicago and recently headlined in The Addams Family.

Gussied-up guests can sip on a cocktail or two at the opening of neighboring SMoCA Lounge before the show begins.
