Description

EVITA
The Broadway Musical Masterpiece

Lyrics by Tim Rice
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Produced on Broadway by Robert Stigwood in association with David Land
Directed on Broadway by Harold Prince

"Oh what a circus, oh what a show" ... this epic Tony Award®-winning Broadway musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice charts the meteoric rise of Argentina's infamous Eva Peron, affectionately known as Evita.

Full of ambition, glamour, and magnetism, Eva climbs her way up the ladder of success from a life of poverty, first as a model and actress, then as the wife of General Juan Peron, and finally as a celebrated spiritual leader and the most powerful woman in South America.

To the poor masses, she is adored as a saint; to her enemies, she is reviled as a manipulative dictator. Nevertheless, for over thirty years this legendary woman becomes the driving spirit that helps define a nation.

Featuring some of the best-loved songs in musical theatre including "Don't Cry For Me Argentina," "Buenos Aires," "Another Suitcase in Another Hall," and "High Flying, Adored," Evita is a powerful and riveting theatrical experience not to be missed.



Directed by John R. Buzzell     Music Direction by John Eldridge   Choreography by Alex Skaggs
