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.
