Excellent seats, and the production was outstanding. Great singing, dancing and acting. A very energized version of EVITA.

This is a great production -- the choreography and set design are gorgeous. As far as voices go, Che was fantastic, but Krystina Alabado as the Mistress stole the show!

This is a particularly good touring company. The set fits the stage, the cast is excellent, particularly the top 6 leads, and the light design was especially effective.

Evita was fine entertainment. "Eva" in this production is no Patti Lupone, but she does a good job. Male leads are better, but all in all, it was a pleasure. I want to... continued

From the lower balcony I could see everything yet used binoculars--recommended. The actress who played Evita has a very shrill high voice so I missed many of her lines.... continued

The performance was absolutely incredible...standing ovations. And the seats in the 12th row, center balcony were great... We could see and hear everything.

The production did not flesh out Eva very well. The actress who played Eva had a squeaky voice on high notes and overall it lacked sharpness in execution.

Drab and unenthusiastic. The lighting made Evita blond wig look like it was neon. Unremarkable choreography. The orchestra was beautiful and the singing uneven but nothing spoils Tim's and Andrew's wonderful music.

Does not live up to the movie but still enjoyable for the most part.
