Token Theatre Friends: Eden Espinosa Paints With Music

Jose talks with the ‘Wicked’ star, currently doing a cabaret residency and soon to star in the musical ‘Lempicka.’

Twice a month on the Token Theatre Friends video series and podcasts, theatre critic Jose Solís and guests bring a POC perspective to the performing arts.

This week Jose sits with Eden Espinosa, beloved star of Wicked and the national tour of Falsettos, who’s currently getting up close and personal with her fans on her Unplugged & Unplanned residency at the Green Room 42. The California native will soon head back to the West Coast to play Art Deco painter Tamara de Lempicka in the La Jolla Playhouse premiere of Lempicka, in a pre-Broadway run. Espinosa talks about these shows as well as about her songwriting, how she approaches performance, and some of her favorite spots for tacos in NYC (as a proud Mexican American herself).

The audio of the interview is also available on the podcast.
