Plot Synopsis
Argentina’s controversial First Lady is the subject of EVITA, Andrew Lloyd Webber & Tim Rice’s dynamic musical masterpiece. Escaping her dirt-poor existence for the bright lights of Buenos Aires, Eva Peron, “saint to the working-class and reviled by the aristocracy,” was destined to leave a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. Featuring such iconic songs as “On This Night of a Thousand Stars,” “Another Suitcase in Another Hall,” and “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” EVITA creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself.
