Theater People Podcast Welcomes WICKED & RENT Star Eden Espinosa
On Monday, June 2nd the Theater People Podcast welcomes Broadway star Eden Espinosa. Topics discussed include her humble beginnings as a Disney theme park performer, her breakthrough performance in the title role of the 2004 musical BROOKLYN, being Idina Menzel's standby in the original company of WICKED, and performing her dream role of Maureen Johnson in the closing company of RENT.
Espinosa shares auditioning advice for up-and-comers, goes deep on her respect and professional friendship with Idina Menzel (they have, after all shared two of the most important roles in recent musical theater history) and tells all about her career ups and downs.
