Story

What Is the Story of Evita?
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Evita charts the rags-to-riches rise of the First Lady of Argentina, who won the love of her countrymen after marrying military leader-turned-president Juan Peron. Set in Buenos Aires between 1934-1952, the musical follows Eva Duarte Peron on her journey from fatherless child to ambitious actress to the most powerful woman in Latin America—and, eventually, to a saint-like figure after her death from cancer at age 33. The events in Evita’s life are presented in song and editorialized on by the show’s narrator, Che.
 

Critics' Reviews

"A petite dynamo from Buenos Aires making a brilliant Broadway debut, Elena Roger sympathetically portrays Eva as a driven soul who is not cynical about her machinations."

Review by Michael Sommers from NJ.com

"Director Michael Grandage scores with a dynamic new ‘Evita,’ graced by an impressive performance from Argentinean actress Elena Roger and the ticket-selling presence of recording star Ricky Martin."

Review by Steve Suskin from Variety
