The Aug. 19 event will also feature an appearance by Wicked's Glinda, Kendra Kassebaum. Both actresses will be on hand to help introduce the new limited-edition Wicked collections, "Defy Gravity" and "Popular," to San Francisco shoppers. The in-store appearance is scheduled for 1-2 PM. Eden Espinosa made her Broadway debut covering the roles of Elphaba and Nessarose in Stephen Schwartz's Wicked. She recently 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. The actress began singing at the age of three, performing at the age of five and recording at the age of ten.
Kendra Kassebaum has been seen on Broadway in Rent and the Tony winning revival of Assassins. She has toured in productions of A Chorus Line and Grease and has numerous regional theatre credits. Kassebaum also appeared on TV's long-running "Guiding Light."
Sephora is located at 33 Powell Street in San Francisco.

Based on Gregory Maguire's novel, which turned every Oz myth inside out, Wicked explores the early life of the witches of Oz: Glinda and Elphaba. The two main characters meet at Shiz, a school where both hope to take up sorcery. Glinda is madly popular and Elphaba is, well, green. By a misunderstanding, they wind up roommates and, after an initial period of mutual loathing, begin to learn something about each other. Their life paths continue to intersect through a shared love, entry into the Emerald City and interaction with the Wizard himself. Eventually, their choices and convictions take them on widely different paths.
