Directed by Tony and Olivier Award-winner Michael Grandage and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Rob Ashford, this is the first new Broadway production of the seven-time Tony Award-winning musical, since it debuted on Broadway over 30 years ago. The New York Post said “The wait was worth it: packed with memorable tunes, EVITA is a MODERN MASTERPIECE!”
Eva Perón used her beauty and charisma to rise meteorically from the slums of Argentina to the presidential mansion as First Lady. Adored by her people as a champion for the poor, she became one of the most powerful women in the world — while her greed, outsized ambition and fragile health made her one of the most tragic. EVITA tells Eva’s passionate and unforgettable true story, and features some of theater’s most beautiful songs, including “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” “Another Suitcase in Another Hall” and “High Flying, Adored.”
Produced by Hal Luftig, Scott Sanders and Troika Entertainment, the creative team includes tour director Seth Sklar-Heyn, tour choreographer Chris Bailey, Tony Award-winning scenic and costume designer Christopher Oram, Tony Award-winning lighting designer Neil Austin, Olivier Award-winning sound designer Mick Potter, wig and hair designer Richard Mawbey, projection designer Zachary Borovay, and music supervisor Kristen Blodgette, music director/conductor William Waldrop, orchestrations are by Andrew Lloyd Webber and David Cullen, and dance arrangements are by David Chase.
Josh Young who is performing the role of “Che” in the current national tour, is playing the part as it was originally written, as did his predecessor on Broadway. The narrating role of “Che” is reverted to the way it was conceived for the concept album – as an ‘everyman’ of the lower/working class, serving as the voice of the people, not Che Guevara.
Using Che Guevara as inspiration for the role was a choice made by Hal Prince when he staged the original production.
EVITA stars Caroline Bowman as Eva Peron, Tony-Award nominee Josh Young as Che and Sean McLaughlin as Juan Peron. The cast also features Desi Oakley as the alternate for Eva Peron, Christopher Johnstone as Magaldi and Krystina Alabado as the Mistress. EVITA, written by Tim Rice, with a score by Andrew Lloyd Webber, is directed by Tony and Olivier Award-winner Michael Grandage and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Rob Ashford.
DSM 2014 season shows continue with MAMMA MIA!, June 3-15, 2014; and NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT, September 2-14, 2014.
