Krysta Rodriguez, who is currently starring on Broadway in First Date, would be an exciting choice for Eponine in the 2014 Broadway revival. The actress, who has also appeared on Broadway in The Addams Family, In the Heights, Spring Awakening, A Chorus Line and Good Vibrations, demonstrated her versatility as an actress when she took a brief hiatus from the stage to film the second and final season of the NBC musical drama "Smash."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart.
