Meet the artists! Principal casting has been set for Lempicka on Broadway ahead of the show's run at the Longacre Theatre. Performances begin March 19, with opening night on April 14.

Newly announced cast members include Amber Iman as Rafaela, Andrew Samonsky as Tadeusz Lempicki, George Abud as Marinetti, Natalie Joy Johnson as Suzy Solidor, Zoe Glick as Kizette, Nathaniel Stampley as the Baron, and Beth Leavel as the Baroness. They join the previously announced Eden Espinosa in the title role of 20th-century Polish artist Tamara de Lempicka.

Lempicka's casting news was announced last night, January 17, at a special event at Sotheby's in partnership with the musical. It was also announced that Sotheby's will host an art exhibit titled “The World of Tamara – A Celebration of Lempicka and Art Deco” from March 28 to April 16, featuring Lempicka's paintings and other memorabilia from her time period.

Lempicka is based on the true story of the professional, social, and romantic life she built in Paris, becoming a sought-after Art Deco painter and redefining the career and societal possibilities for women. The show is by Carson Kreitzer (book, lyrics, and original concept) and Matt Gould (book and music) in their Broadway debuts, and Tony Award winner Rachel Chavkin directs.
