From on stage at theme parks to on stage on Broadway
Written by Robert Niles
I wanted to bring your attention to an interesting profile in the LA Times this morning of Eden Espinosa, who plays Elphaba in the Los Angeles production of the musical "Wicked."Tweet
The piece plays up her time at the Mouse House, though it notes that she actually caught her break while working the "Spider-Man Rocks" show at USH. [Full disclosure: I reviewed "Spider-Man Rocks" for the LAT and panned the show, though, I did heap praise on the cast.] The piece also notes that Broadway's current Elphaba, Stephanie Block, also once worked as a Disneyland face character.
Feel free to share thoughts about theme park entertainment performers, or about "Wicked," in the comments.
