Why See Evita?
The Tony Award Winning Musical, Evita!
The Tony Award-winning hit musical Evita, which has captivated audiences for over 40 years, is hitting the road once again! Evita tells the story of the beloved Argentine political leader Eva Peron through Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Grammy-award winning score.
What is Evita about?
Set in 1940s Bueno AiresThrough the eyes of the future revolutionary leader Ché Guevara, follow Eva Duarte and her ambitious adventure as she seeks power to help her fellow Argentinians. From her early life as an ambitious actress, to marrying Argentina's President Juan Peron and becoming Argentina's dynamic First Lady, to her eventual death from cancer.
Expect a captivating production that includes the show-stoppers 'Don't Cry For Me Argentina', 'Another Suitcase in Another Hall' and 'Rainbow High'.
Did You Know?
Upon Evita's death, the Argentinians were told that Eva was only 30 rather than 33. After becoming the first lady in 1946, Evita had her birth certificate altered to read that she had been born to married parents (her rights would have been a lot different if they knew of her 'illegitimate' upbringing), and placed her birthdate three years later, making herself younger.
