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.

This play is well worth seeing. It's gritty, in-your-face, but leaves you with a very clear picture of the life of a teen female gang-banger, the things she's encountered growing up that fuel the choices she makes later on, etc. The simplicity of the stage set is ingenious, and the transition from one act to the next is almost seamless.

“A searing, take-no-prisoners play.” —Chicago Sun-Times
The Studio 2ndStage kicks off its 20th anniversary season with Breath, Boom: the gritty, vivid story of one woman’s journey from gang girl to grown-up. The play follows fourteen years in the life of Prix as she goes from sixteen-year-old gang queen to mature, thirty-year-old woman. This will be the Washington premiere of the work of playwright Kia Corthron, an important voice in contemporary African-American theatre whose work has never seen a full production in DC. Emerging talent Rahaleh Nassri directs a young, dynamic, and multi-ethnic cast of twelve women and one man, featuring powerhouse performer Roxi Trapp-Dukes as Prix.
