On March 29, director Rachel Chavkin posed with the casts of the two Broadway shows she has directed, opposite each other on West 48th Street: The highly anticipated new musical “Lempicka” about the life of artist Tamara de Lempicka, now at the Longacre Theatre, and the Tony Award-winning musical, “Hadestown,” now in its fifth year at the Walter Kerr Theatre.

Chavkin won the Tony Award for “Hadestown.” Her other theater credits include “Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812,” “The Royale,” “Three Pianos,” and “Moby-Dick.”
