The Brightest Lights On Broadway: Eden Espinosa

The actress stars as Polish painter Tamara de Lempicka in a new musical at the Longacre Theatre

Many theatergoers might not know that Tamara de Lempicka was a Polish art deco painter. “But they will recognize her art,” says Eden Espinosa (Rent and Wicked), who plays the artist in a new musical, Lempicka, directed by Rachel Chavkin (Hadestown). “Lempicka’s story is so layered and nuanced. It makes you feel and think.” Espinosa has been attached to the show for several years—it first premiered in 2018 at the Williamstown Theatre Festival—but she’ll finally bring it to the Longacre Theatre this spring. “That’s all I’ve ever wanted for this piece,” says Espinosa. “I just want New York to be able to see our show.”
