 Broadway company of  You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown, in which  she played Patty. In 1976, she moved to Los  Angeles

 with the original national company of A Chorus Line. 

Lee  received a Clio nomination for the Pepsi “Skywriter” commercial and won the  Communications Collaborative

 Award for the Cleveland Trust commercial “Ballerina.”

 In the 1980s, Lee  returned to Broadway  for the record-breaking  performance of A Chorus  Line, and for the  musical

 Meet Me in St. Louis, for which she received the Gypsy Robe (rebranded as the  Legacy Robe in 2018).

Lee wrote and produced the live-action holiday specials The Elf Who Saved Christmas and The Elf and the Magic Key,

 which  aired domestically on USA Network and have been seen worldwide. She also  wrote and produced the award-
