It fell flat for me. The voices and staging were good but it was too dark for my taste.

Evita is a very strong show and this company provided a pretty strong performance of it. It was well-staged and the singing was generally good. As with many of the touring casts, though, there just seemed to be a *little* something lacking. ...continued

A wonderful theatrical experience. I thought it was an all around strong production. The voices and the technical aspects of the show were superb! Strong Lead Performers and ensemble. A true muscial theatre classic in the historical Pantages.

What a pleasurable experience as this is my first time seeing this awesome musical and I did not see the movie version with Madonna either. The acting, singing and dancing was spectacular and the actress who portrayed Eva truly deserves a Tony...continued

Had a very nice evening with two friends. Performances were all good. At the end there after the applause there was a plea for charitable donation and actors came out front. Seats were OK Row TT which is about 6 rows from the back of theater, we...continued

My 9th time to see Evita and probably the best performance ever!
Dancing was unbelievable, voices clear and crisp. Beyond wonderful!

Great music, dancing and humor, with a bit of history involved. Narrator shines.

This is one of my favorite musicals and I think that this national tour did an admirable job. Very good singing and direction.

The production was wonderful...dancers were fabulous, costumes, and set were great. The only sour note came from the understudy, who, when she tried to hit high notes, was pitchy and squawked like a parrot.

We have seen this both on stage and on film in the past and just love it for the drama and music. This is an interesting production -- lots of tango which we enjoyed. The lead playing Che was EXCELLENT. Unfortunately the Evita performer was not...continued

Great performance and well staged but not touching. I remember crying watching the movie but this musical lacked that. Great show but only my eyes enjoyed it.

Excellent night of musical theater. The music and performances thrill. A suggestion: Read a brief history of Eva Perone before seeing this show; it will help better understand the story as presented on stage. Be aware that the producers took some...continued

It was fantastic! However, it was not the Evita of old - different choreography, staging etc.

We loved it! I had promised my girlfriend to take her to see Evita some years back, for some reason we never got to go, always something. Married now and 30 years later (yes, married with the girl I made the promise to that many years back) we...continued

Beautiful theater and very good cast. Singing and orchestra were first-rate. The story (if you're not already familiar with it) is as powerful and pertinent today as when it was first written.

The show was great with wonderful performances. I was disappointed in our seats which were in the last row of the orchestra level. The price on the tickets was $39.50. Goldstar price was $42.50 and supposedly with Red Velvet we were supposed to...continued

Excellent seat by goldstar. Front row on the Mezz what more can i ask for. Che- played by Josh Young was excellent. Evita was played almost like a Disney princess which was a little bit of a bummer. The road production was trimmed down and...continued
