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.

the performance was a joy! the story was relevant to current times though

Ambitious and groundbreaking for its time, Street Scene is strikingly relevant more than 80 years after its premiere. Street Scene explores the intertwined lives of the inhabitants of a New York City tenement and the adjacent neighborhood street in the late 1920s. Surprisingly intimate, natural and humorous, Street Scene reminds audiences of the nobility, passions and human failings common to all. By placing in stark relief the disparities between rich and poor, the flawed attitudes toward newcomers, the drive to create a better life, and the simple yearning for kindness and love, the play prompts viewers to recognize the same stories taking place today just down their own block.
