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

Hairspray is magically electric on stage. The choreography is simply amazing. The cast is constantly in motion. They are graceful and fluid doing things that normal people just can't. Even more amazing, is that they SING throughout. The story is simple, the set is adequate, the music is nice. Put it all together with the energy of the cast, and it is easily worth full price.
Quotes & Highlights
- “If life were everything it should be, it would be more like Hairspray. It’s irresistible.”--New York Times
It's 1962, and pleasantly plump Baltimore teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire - to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream comes true, a transformed Tracy uses her newfound power to vanquish the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin and integrate a TV network - all without denting her 'do! Hairspray is Broadway's musical-comedy phenomenon that inspired a major motion picture and won eight 2003 Tony Awards, including Best musical.
Running time (approximate): 2 hours and 37 minutes
