Meet the Cast video series: Eddie Lopez

In this ongoing series, we briefly introduce you to the actors performing in our plays in a fun way. Episode 70: Meet Eddie Lopez of Sacramento, who plays the lovably oblivious boy-toy Spike in the Theatre Company at the DCPA’s new production of Christopher Durang’s celebrated comedy, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike.

Lopez talks about capoeira (the national sport of Brazil), his first impressions of Denver and his thoughts on Meryl Streep … and kindness.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike won the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play. It’s about adult siblings whose lives are disrupted by a visit from their Hollywood star sister … and a boy named Spike. It plays through Nov. 16 in the Ricketson Theatre. Call 303-893-4100, or go to Video by John Moore and David Lenk. Run time: 3 minutes.

And, hey: Check out our new media outlet covering Colorado theatre at MyDenverCenter.Org

Let’s just be honest: Eddie Lopez has the assets you need in an actor who plays a muscular boy toy named Spike.
