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.

A brilliant tour de force!!!! Absolutely loved loved loved this performance. This actor is phenomenal - sure it's a wonderful life is a familiar story and you have to be living underneath a rock no to know it - but the way this actor seamlessly moved in and out of the key characters was truly a sight to behold. This is a holiday classic for sure and definitely not to be missed! Thanks for another terrific evening out! And as an FYI - I have seen two other performances at this venue, Birds of a Feather and The Clockmaker and each has been outstanding. Thanks again!

Nice adaptation. I watched the movie two days before the play, which was very helpful in following along. I attended with two friends. One had never seen the movie and, while she appreciated the performance, she was absolutely lost with the story...continued
