I was disappointed, and my date and I left at the intermission. The production was not great and I could barely hear the songs. In terms of visual appeal, the PPAC has a opulent interior that is more suited to the turn of the century. However,...continued

The show was fast paced and the acoustics were perfect - even seated in 2nd balcony we could hear and see everything clearly.

First time at the theater. Sound in balcony was imbalanced making it hard to hear vocals over overly loud music. Kind staff member let us sit in first floor seats for second act - excellent all around.

I saw the original in London years ago, so I am biased because it was the best show ever for me. This one in Providence was OK, but it did not satisfy my cravings for the original.

Evita was thoroughly enjoyable. Great lead voices, strong ensemble work. The ensemble tango in "And the Money Kept Rolling In" was a wonderful choreography. Hats off to Krystina Alabada for her pure and touching delivery of "Another Suitcase in...continued

Excellent show! I didn't know much about the whole history of Evita and Argentina and it was fun how it progressively unfolded in each of the songs. The words were quite understandable, for the most part, which was helpful. Great venue (PPAC),...continued

Loved Josh Young as Che; the entire production was well-done, though the Evita role was not consistently sung.

First of all, the production was GREAT!! And the performances were great as well. Show is VERY much like the movie, so sometimes it's hard for a live performance to live up to all the post production edits of a movie, but this one truly did. I...continued

The Play itself was very good.
I was extremely disappointed with Goldstar and the tickets! If I had not been able to find someone with a smartphone who allowed me to find my payment receipt, I would not have been able to get in, as they could not...continued
