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

I've seen Evita before and this production did not live up to my expectations...actors were below average and scenery not great.

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!

Seats in dress circle were excellent. Understudy for Eva last night. I did not care for her voice. Much too shrill. Also, as critics have mentioned the play was less exciting than it should have been given the historical background. ...continued

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.

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. And I have seen the movie many times and a previous stage version. I much...continued

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

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.

I purchased the orchestra seats and was delighted with the assigned seating (row O) - we had an excellent view. The Oriental Theater is beautiful and it seems as though there's not a bad seat in the house. The production was excellent, lots of...continued

Sat in the upper balcony. These tix were half price. The trade-off is you cannot see the actors expressions and singing gets muffled at that height. Performance was good: music excellent, stagecraft very good, dancing professional, singing...continued

Evita was wonderful. The actor who played Che was excellent as well as the actress who played Evita herself. Fantastic performance!
