Why See Evita?
The Musical Of The Summer
Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's iconic Evita is heading to the Regents Park Open Air Theatre this year in what is sure to be the production of the summer. Directed by acclaimed practitioner Jamie Lloyd (Pinter at the Pinter season) the story of Eva Peron's rise to stardom will return to London in a dazzling and spellbinding new production.
Full of some of musical theatre's biggest tunes (Don't Cry For Me Argentina, Oh What a Circus, You Must Love Me and Another Suitcase In Another Hall) Evita has been safely inaugurated into the musical theatre canon, and further solidifies Rice and Webber's dynamic partnership and hold on the genre. Charting the rise of Eva Peron, wife of Argentine dictator Juan Peron, Evita is a stunningly beautiful and glittering production which captures the hearts of fans old and new whenever it plays.
What is Evita about?
Set in late 1940's Buenos Aires, this multi-award winning musical follows the controversial South American figure from her early life as an ambitious actress, her rise to power as Argentina's dynamic First Lady and would-be vice president, through to her eventual early death from cancer. The choric character of Che narrates the story and represents the simple and poor Argentinean workers who loved, admired and supported Eva.
