lyrics by TIM RICE | music by ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER
From a life of poverty to spiritual leader of the nation, Eva Peron was loved, hated, derided and venerated.
Dividing the Argentinian people with her patriotic speeches, her ambition, glamour and magnetism established ‘Evita’ as the world’s first major political celebrity.
With a chart-topping score including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, Oh What A Circus, Another Suitcase in Another Hall, and the Oscar-winning You Must Love Me, Jamie Lloyd directs Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's iconic musical.
Samantha Pauly*, Ektor Rivera and Trent Saunders are appearing with the support of UK Equity, incorporating the Variety Artistes’ Federation, pursuant to an exchange program between American Equity and UK Equity.
