Broadway says goodbye to Matt Gould and Carson Kreitzer's Lempicka as the biomusical plays its final performance at the Longacre Theatre May 19. Tony winner Rachel Chavkin directs the new biomusical following the life of the titular artist and exiled aristocrat.

Stars Eden Espinosa and Amber Iman are both 2024 Tony Award nominees for their performances.

The production has released videos of many of the show's songs in the days leading up to its final performance. Watch "Woman Is," "Speed," "Stay," and "Unseen." A Broadway cast recording is due to release July 5.

Espinosa stars as Polish painter Tamara de Lempicka, a young aristocrat-turned-artist who flees with her husband from the turmoil of the Russian Revolution for exile in Paris. Once there, Tamara meets her new muse, Rafaela (Iman), and claws her way to success. The book, lyrics, and original concept are by Kreitzer, with Gould co-writing the book and penning the music.
