EP 451: Tamlyn Tomita On Starring in the Musical “Spring Awakening”

Veteran American actor Tamlyn Tomita is my guest this week to make sure that as many people as possible know about East West Players’ last production of their 57th season Spring Awakening. This revolutionary musical won the “Best Musical” Tony Award on Broadway, and I can promise you that Director Tim Dang’s version at the David Henry Hwang Theater in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, is Broadway-quality! Tamlyn and husband Daniel Blinkoff play all of the adult roles quite convincingly, and the ensemble cast of young actors will have you questioning whether this production is truly their professional debut. Head over to to find a performance that matches your schedule and purchase your tickets.
