With music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, the compelling true story of Eva Perón comes to vivid life through stunning showstoppers 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 charisma to rise from the slums of Argentina to President Juan Perón's side as 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 unwavering ambition and a devastating illness, making her one of history's most tragic and dramatic figures. Direct from Broadway and making its first national tour, this stunning production is directed by Tony nominee Michael Grandage and choreographed by Tony winner Rob Ashford. Learn More
