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.
 

Reviews

for Evita

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

Mr. Grandage's ‘Evita’ is an impressive achievement that should be judged on its own merits, which are legion. Even if you don't like Andrew Lloyd Webber's music, it will hold your eye from curtain to curtain.

Review by Terry Teachout from The Wall Street Journal

Much of the buzz coming from the new revival ‘Evita’ has been about the spitfire Argentine playing the title role. But all of the heat actually comes from the guy shaking his bon-bon. Ricky Martin is easily the best thing about this revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber's bio of Eva Peron. He sings beautifully, dances gracefully, athletically climbs ladders, plays his role with a knowing sneer and elicits drools in his suspenders and tight white shirt. He even makes a mustache work. In fact, maybe it's time for Broadway to have a new rule: Put Ricky Martin in everything.

Review by Mark Kennedy from The Associated Press

Ricky Martin gives a great big touch of star quality to the seductive revival of ‘Evita’ at the Marquis. Seductive, sexy and sublime! One Can’t help but lean in, desperate for more.
