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.

It is wonderful to have the opportunity to see a classic play from another era. This one was excellently staged and costumed, and the acting was very good. Overall, the presentation and the dialogue flowed smoothly; there were many witty lines and these were well-delivered. The play was a bit "campy", but I rather suspect that that is just the way it was intended to be presented at the French court.
Hartke Theatre is comfortable, cold drinks and munchies are available, and parking was easy right outside the theatre on-street.
All in all, it was a most enjoyable event.
