Our opening episode of Fit for Broadway’s new podcast, The BE Way, is with two of our favorite Broadway heroes, Eden Espinosa and Patrice Covington.
Patrice Covington discusses her transformation in a body she has always loved; “Don’t be a star, be a galaxy”. And Eden Espinosa revisits a blog post she wrote a few years ago about living in her truth; “Don’t let fear get in the way of what you want to do.”
Check out a few of our favorite quotes from Episode 1 and be sure to Rate, Review, and Subscribe to The BE Way on iTunes! We love y’all and love sharing Broadway narratives with you in a new way.

“I am Patrice Covington and Broadway inspires me to BE tenacious” -Patrice Covington
“My body is my instrument. I suppose that means.. My body is loud. My body is bold. My body has a lot of crescendos and decrescendos. It is brassy and it has a lot of solos.” -Patrice Covington
“It was an 8:00PM class. It was totally dark. It was candlelit only. They had awesome music. Nothing like what I thought yoga was. I felt comfortable body-wise there, which I did not expect at all. I thought yoga was for like, young white ladies. Like, that’s what I thought. I never saw anybody thick, curvy, plus sized, and definitely not black in yoga. When I went there that night at the end of the class I laid in a puddle, I sometimes get emotional when I tell this story… I laid in a puddle of what I could not tell what was sweat and what was tears. But I knew I felt good about it.” -Patrice Covington
