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.

For those steeped in Greek mythology, this outing with the three Tiresias figures is a special treat, but the play also works with a general audience. In just about an hour (with no intermission), three talented actors bring to life this tormented and sublime persona. They provide a fascinating backstory for the blind prophet we know best from the Oedipus plays.

Capricious gods, forbidden love, false prophets, true seers, ancient kings, bandit queens, switched genders, eyes plucked out in fistfuls and a healthy dose of gallows humor. Is the future of mankind a comedy or a tragedy?
The show runs 1 hour, 10 minutes, with no intermission.
