Evita

Lyrics by Tim Rice |
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber |
Directed by Rob Ruggiero

The incandescent Eva Perón’s rise from poverty to power electrified the world – and made her an iconic political celebrity. Winner of seven Tony Awards, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s tour-de-force musical revels in the glamour, charisma and controversy that defined the First Lady of Argentina. With its unforgettable anthem “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” and kaleidoscope of sights and sounds, Evita dazzles with pure passion.

Approximate running time: 1 hour, 57 minutes. Performed with one intermission.
