Why See Evita?
BROADWAY'S EVITA IN THE CITY OF COWBOYS AND CULTURE
Casa Mañana’s Broadway Season this year is set to include a show from musical theater’s most successful songwriting team. Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s classic hit, Evita, will bring the story of Eva Perón’s life to the Texan stage. It features an unmistakable score which includes the iconic show-stoppers "Don't Cry For Me, Argentina" and “On This Night of a Thousand Stars”.
What is Evita about?
Set in late 1940’s Buenos Aires, this multi-award winning musical follows the controversial South American figure from her early life as an ambitious actress, her rise to power as Argentina’s dynamic First Lady and would-be vice president, through to her eventual early death from cancer. The choric character of Ché narrates the story and represents the simple and poor Argentinean workers who loved, admired and supported Eva. This moving and inspiring musical first played on Broadway in 1979, with the 1996 big screen movie adaptation (starring Madonna) creating a revival of interest in the project, the show returned to broadway in 2012.
