The evening's special guest performers include Wicked's Eden Espinosa and Giant's Katie Thompson. Eden Espinosa made her Broadway debut covering the roles of Elphaba and Nessarose in Stephen Schwartz's Wicked. She eventually assumed the role of Elphaba on Broadway and also opened the sit-down production of Wicked in Los Angeles. Espinosa also played the role of Brooklyn — a part she created at the Denver Civic Theatre — in the musical of the same name at the Schoenfeld Theatre. She played Maureen in the final cast of Broadway's Rent and was also seen in the Reprise staging of Flora, the Red Menace.

Katie Thompson is a singer-songwriter, who will be seen in the new Michael John LaChiusa musical Giant this spring at the Signature Theatre in Virginia. Thompson has released two solo albums, "What I've Done Right" and "KT Live," both available on itunes.

Espinosa will also perform in concert at Joe's Pub March 22-24. Thompson will be her special guest.

Broadway Sessions with Ben D is hosted by actor Ben Cameron, who has appeared on Broadway in Footloose, Aida and Wicked. The evening of music, games and comedy at the midtown club begins at 11 PM.

Therapy is located in Manhattan at 348 West 52nd Street. There is no cover charge for the event; attendees must be 21 years or older.
