About Evita:

Fame, power, and illusion collide in a new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s rock opera Evita. This acclaimed musical examines the rapid and controversial ascent of Eva Perón, the first lady of Argentina, from poor illegitimate child to the most powerful woman in Latin America to her untimely death at age 33. A mosaic portrait of an extraordinary life, Evita tells the story of a woman endlessly determined to make an irrevocable mark on a world she would leave behind too soon.

Our Evita Review

The legacy and history of the Broadway genre is defined most by its divas: Broadway’s brightest and most archetypal stars have been women. They are charismatic, larger than life, and have voices that bring crowds to their knees and to their feet. Moreover, they are immense cultural properties that hold a special place in the hearts of those they reach.
