    What the popular press said...

    "Feels about as warmblooded as a gilded mummy."
    Ben Brantley for NY Times

    "One can’t help but lean in, desperate for more. That’s what seduction is all about."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for NY Daily News

    "A big, fat, juicy blockbuster of a show."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "If you yearn for a powerful wallop to your gut, listen to either of the original cast albums."
    David Sheward for Back Stage

    "It's great to hear the 'Evita' score, beautifully arranged and performed by an excellent orchestra. But the revival, the first on Broadway since the show debuted in 1979, is a sadly missed opportunity."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "Grandage’s impassioned production brings Evita to life in fine style."
    Roma Torre for NY1

    "People who already love “Evita” may be surprised by such a glossy treatment of the work, but they are likely to surrender to her ever compelling-ways, especially when the performances are so splendid."
    Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

    "Fresh electricity charges through the poperatic 1978 saga."
    David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

    "Grandage scores with a dynamic new 'Evita.'"
    Steven Suskin for Variety
