About Lempicka on Broadway

Embark on an epic journey alongside artist Tamara de Lempicka, played by Broadway favorite Eden Espinosa, as she goes from refugee to critically acclaimed portrait painter in the new Lempicka Broadway musical also starring Tony Award winner Beth Leavel and Helen Hayes Award nominee Amber Iman. Get Lempicka tickets on TodayTix, and witness almost six decades of history through the eyes of a trailblazing female artist.

In the style of iconic Broadway blockbusters like Les Misérables and Evita, Lempicka charts how the title character lives through two wars and goes from scrubbing floors to making a name for herself as an Art Deco painter. In an era where it was taboo, she was bold and self-assured, exploring her sexuality and nightlife in Paris. Watch Espinosa reprise her critically acclaimed performance as Lempicka from California and Massachusetts.

Experience a seldom-told story drawn for the stage by the award-winning director of Hadestown and Broadway-debut songwriters.

More information about Lempicka on Broadway

Lempicka covers decades of political and personal strife for the title character. Amid the backdrop of the Russian Revolution, which sends her and her husband fleeing from Poland to Paris, she leaves her former life of luxury behind but finds a new social scene to join — thanks to one of the models Lempicka paints and soon falls for.

Before the premiere of Lempicka on Broadway, the show debuted in 2018 at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. In 2022, Lempicka had a pre-Broadway run at La Jolla Playhouse.

The San Diego Union-Tribune praised the show for its stunning production and breathtaking musical performances. "In life, Lempicka may not have been an easy person to love, but on the musical stage, she's at least easier to understand and appreciate," the publication's critic wrote.

That's thanks to Lempicka's creative team. Creators Carson Kreitzer and Matt Gould make their Broadway debuts with the show alongside veteran director Rachel Chavkin, a Tony winner for Hadestown.

What to watch for

  • Many people covet Lempicka's work. One of her paintings, Portrait de Marjorie Ferry, sold for £16,280,000. Among her famous collectors is Barbra Streisand!
  • Lempicka boasts elaborate projections to set the scene. These include include images of Lempicka's paintings, photographs of 1920s Paris, and newsreels from the wars that take place during the show.
  • The Lempicka musical compares history to today. As the New York Times review noted, "Lempicka draws implicit parallels between the divided world of today and an earlier era of increasing, frightening, intolerance."
  • Matt Gould told the LA Times of the music in the show, which combines a variety of influences including pop and rock, "She [Lempicka] was always trying to create something new. It only felt right to do the same thing musically."
