HOLMDEL, NJ – Holmdel Theatre Company is proud to present the next installment of their 2021 Broadway At the Barn series with EDEN ESPINOSA: An Evening with Eden Espinosa on Saturday, November 13 at 8 PM ET.

Most recognized for her critically acclaimed portrayal of Elphaba in Wicked (Broadway, LA and San Francisco), Broadway icon Eden Espinosa makes her Holmdel debut with An Evening with Eden Espinosa, an intimate, laid back, and playful event.

Inspired by the energy of the new decade and post pandemic – Espinosa has decided to shake things up and try things she’s never done before with An Evening with Eden Espinosa. Espinosa will be taking requests and encouraging spontaneous moments and off-the-cuff stories. Audiences can be sure to experience something different. Featuring songs from both of her albums, Broadway songs, pop and rock covers, songs she’s never sung before and more… Eden’s show is a conversation in her living room with the added value of a concert experience.

In addition to Wicked, Espinosa is also known for originating the title role in Brooklyn (Drama League Award nomination), playing Maureen in the closing Broadway cast of RENT, and playing Trina in the most recent Broadway national tour of The Falsettos. She recently originated the role of Tamara in the world premiere of Lempicka at Williamstown Theatre Festival, directed by Tony winner Rachel Chavkin (Hadestown).
