Opening on 2 August, Evita is our fastest selling production ever, and two additional matinee performances have been added, due to demand, on Wednesday 21 August and Wednesday 28 August*.

Evita premiered in the West End in 1978, and features a chart-topping score including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, Oh! What A Circus, Another Suitcase in Another Hall, and the Academy Award-winning You Must Love Me, originally performed by Madonna in the motion picture.
