Hey, isn't that Bebe Neuwirth?

Today, on the third and probable final day of the New York transit strike, multiple hyphenate Bebe Neuwirth found that not even earmuffs and a bike helmet grant anonymity.

In a call to Culture Shock, Bebe mentioned she was bundled and layered against the 23-degree weather in NYC. Riding a bicycle near the West Side Highway, she heard someone calling her name.

Perplexed, she turned to see two women waving at her.

"How did you know"? she asked them, surprised and amused that fame transcends even winter layers.

You'll recognize Neuwirth even more easily in Florida.

She's the Tony and Emmy Award-winning dancer, singer and actress you've seen in TV shows such as "Cheers" and "Law and Order" as well as on Broadway with "Chicago," "Fosse" and "Sweet Charity."

Bebe will be in concert at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center on Feb. 26, performing material from songwriting legends Kurt Weill ("The Threepenny Opera") and Kander and Ebb ("Cabaret," "Chicago").

TBPAC.ORG is currently hosting a full interview with Bebe, check it out.
