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.

Sadly there is not a moderately priced cafe/wine bar within 2 blocks. The nearby Radisson (maybe it's a Towne Court) has a very mediocre restaurant. On the corner is a LOUD place 'Waters....something' but I'm concerned that restauranteurs ignore needs of 'mature' people. I sincerely hope when St Paul redoes the former Macy's block, it includes a restaurant/bar similar - if not the same- as the old Rosewood Rm.Courting Harry dining • Apr 11 2014 star this tip starred
This family has been regulars at the History Theater for years. We have always parked in the ramp by the Children's Museum, just a block away. Now we are looking forward to taking the light rail from the burbs and avoiding parking all together. When the Central Corder opens in June, the train will stop literally at the door of the History Theatre. This tremendous venue will be incredibly accessible from anywhere the light rail goes or can be picked up!The Incredible Season of Ronnie Rabinovitz info • Feb 15 2014 star this tip starred

GREAT show!!! Good energy, good acting, GREAT voices. Not too long, not too short. I've been to the Surf Ball Room in Clear Lake, IA many times so this story is near and dear to my heart although I was only 2 when Buddy Holly died.

Written by Alan Janes

Part biography, part rock ‘n’ roll concert, this is the musical retelling of the life and times of Buddy Holly from his meteoric rise to stardom to the unforgettable concert in Clear Lake, Iowa. Extremely talented, passionate, and impulsive, Buddy crossed racial barriers with his music and left an indelible legacy in just four short years. Musical hits include: “Peggy Sue,” “Oh Boy!” “Rave On,” and “That’ll Be the Day.”
