Tim Rice & Andrew Lloyd Webber's Tony Award–winning musical returns at last! Eva Perón used her beauty and charisma to rise meteorically from the slums of Argentina to the presidential mansion as First Lady. Adored by her people as a champion for the poor, she became one of the most powerful women in the world--while her greed, outsized ambition, and fragile health made her one of the most tragic.
Evita tells Eva's passionate and unforgettable true story, and features some of theater's most beautiful songs, including "Don't Cry for Me Argentina," "Another Suitcase in Another Hall," and "High Flying, Adored." Don't miss this stunning new production directed by Tony Award winner Michael Grandage (Red) and choreographed by Tony Award winner Rob Ashford (Thoroughly Modern Millie) that New York Daily News calls "seductive, sexy, and sublime!"
Recommended for age 11 and up.
Performance Timing: 2 hours, 20 minutes, including one intermission.
