Hailed as a modern masterpiece, Tim Rice & Andrew Lloyd Webber's Tony Award-winning musical Evita is now back in the nation's capital with a new Broadway touring production. Following the unforgettable true story of former Argentine first lady Eva Perón, Evita showcases its namesake lead's meteoric rise from the slums to the presidential mansion, where she became a champion of the poor and one of the most powerful women in the modern world. Caroline Bowman (Kinky Boots, Wicked, Spamalot) plays Eva, whose greed, outsized ambition and fragile health also made her story a tragic one. Featuring songs like "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" and "High Flying, Adored," this Evita production is directed by Michael Grandage (Red) and choreographed by Rob Ashford (Thoroughly Modern Millie), both Tony-winning artists.

Teatro de la Luna was never as good as GALA, but it could sometimes pull off a decent play. But Turkish Tango is, frankly, just awful. It doesn't help that the main characters are supposed to be Argentines and the actors can't do a decent Argentine accent, or, for that matter, act. Or that the theater is in a middle school's second auditorium, and has no ventilation.

The actors were good, but the script was quite boring. Most importantly, I found the script offensive for Muslims (they spent half of the show making fun of how Muslims pray on the floor). I was shocked and saddened at how politically incorrect...continued
This production is recommended for those age 15 and older.
