Evita

THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE CANNOT BE DENIED

Bill Kenwright's 'superb' (Sunday Telegraph) production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Evita is set to captivate the West End again for a strictly limited season.

This 'monumental show' (Sunday Express) tells the story of an ordinary woman's meteoric rise to power at a time of extraordinary political unrest. It follows Eva Peron's, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron, journey from humble beginnings through to extraordinary wealth, power and iconic status, which ultimately lead her to be heralded as the 'spiritual leader of the nation' by the Argentine people.

Starring one of musical theatre's most exciting young leading ladies Emma Hatton, who direct from playing Elphaba in Wicked has been wowing audiences and critics across the country with her portrayal of Eva. She is joined by leading Italian performer Gian Marco Schiaretti as Che in his West End debut.

With more than 20 major awards to its credit, and an Oscar winning film version starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Evita is iconic. Featuring some of the best loved songs in musical theatre, including Don't Cry for Me Argentina, On This Night of a Thousand Stars, You Must Love Me, and Another Suitcase in Another Hall, this spectacular production promises to be the theatrical event of the summer!
