With music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, the compelling true story of Eva Perón comes to vivid life through stunning show-stoppers like "Don't Cry For Me, Argentina," "Another Suitcase in Another Hall" and "High Flying, Adored." Evita follows the path of the small-town peasant girl as she uses her considerable smarts and charm to secure a place at Juan Peron's side as Argentina's First Lady, becoming one of South America's most powerful women. Though she was much beloved by her people as the voice of the poor, her inevitable downfall came through her unabated ambition and a devastating illness, making her one of history's most tragic and dramatic figures. This all-new production, directed by Tony nominee Michael Grandage and choreographed by Tony winner Rob Ashford, stars a cast of Broadway veterans, including Caroline Bowman (Kinky Boots, Wicked), Sean MacLaughlin (Phantom of the Opera) and Josh Young, who was nominated for a 2012 Tony for his role as Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar.
