Yesterday at the BroadwayCon Cabaret Leslie sang “The Man That Got Away” and we got her on video. We apologize for the quality of the video, but the press was stuck on the side which is really hard to film.
You can catch Leslie today at BroadwayCon at 6pm at the MainStage for the Leslie Margherita Variety Hour.
