Vivienne Sonia Segal (April 19, 1897 - December 29, 1992) was an American actress and singer.

Segal was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She is best remembered for creating the role of Vera Simpson in Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart's Pal Joey and introduced the song "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered". Pal Joey opened at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre December 25, 1940, with a cast that included Gene Kelly and June Havoc.

Since the 1940 production went unrecorded, a studio cast was assembled in 1950 to record the musical. In 2003, this recording was reissued by Columbia Broadway Masterworks in a release featuring such Rodgers and Hart tunes as “I Could Write a Book”, “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered”, “Zip”, and “Take Him,” as well as two bonus tracks: Lang singing “I Could Write a Book” (from the CBS TV show Shower of Stars) and Segal—interviewed by Mike Wallace on the CBS radio show Stage Struck -- recalled Hart's promise to write her a show and then sand “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered”. She was also a performer on the CBS radio program Accordiana in 1934.

Segal's first marriage to actor Robert Ames ended in divorce, and she then married television executive Hubbell Robinson. She died in Beverly Hills in 1992, aged 95. She was interred in the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles.
