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

The Orange County Performing Arts Center presents an exhilarating new production of Pippin by Broadway composer (Wicked, Godspell, Children of Eden, Working, Rags) and three-time Oscar winner Stephen Schwartz.
The musical, which debuted on Broadway in 1972 and ran for five years, was a collaboration of Broadway giants, boasting the talents of young composer Schwartz, the explosive energy of actor Ben Vereen, and the vision of legendary director/choreographer Bob Fosse. The production won five Tony Awards and received rave reviews.
This vivid re-imagining of Pippin from the Goodspeed Opera House retains the wit, style, and charm of the original production, while infusing it with a contemporary approach. Once again there is “magic to do” -- this time with fascinating new sets and costumes, plus the added attraction of “cirque-like” acrobatics.
Micky Dolenz, part of the musical phenomenon The Monkees, performs the role of Charlemagne. While best known for his role as Micky in the television show The Monkees (1966-1968), Dolenz has continued to work as an actor, writer, and director. In 2002, he expanded his reach to Broadway when he took over the role of the villain, Zoser, in the Tim Rice and Elton John musical Aida. Other theatre credits include the national tours of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and Grease. Additionally, he wrote and directed Bugsy Malone for the London stage.
