Revered by her people as an advocate for the poor, Eva Perón climbed meteorically from the slums of Argentina to her role as beloved First Lady at the age of 27, and became one of the most powerful women in the world. Evita tells Eva's passionate and unforgettable true story through some of the theatre's most beautiful songs, including the unforgettable “Don't Cry for Me Argentina.”
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Lyrics by Tim Rice
Directed and Choreographed by Nick Demos
Musical Direction by Allen Robertson
