For Broadway's Matilda, a standout of the 2012-13 season, we couldn't resist including two breakout performances. Olivier Award winner Lesli Margherita, who makes her Broadway debut with the production, plays Matilda's mother, Mrs. Wormwood, another character that we love to hate. Who could resist her sexy high-kicking in the tango-inspired dance number "Loud"? She proves to be a surefire triple-threat.
