About the Show

"EVITA is marvelous!" -The London Times

"There has never been a musical as dramatically exciting as EVITA." -Time Out New York

"A big, fat, high-octane blockbuster." -New York Post


Eva Perón’s ambition and charisma made her a starlet at 22, the President’s mistress at 24, First Lady Eva at 27 and dead at 33.  Saint to the working-class, reviled by the aristocracy and mistrusted by the military, she left a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. Adored by her people as a champion for the poor, she became one of the most powerful women in the world. Eva’s unforgettable story is told in one of the most celebrated musicals of all time. With more than 20 major awards to its credit, EVITA features a Latin rock/jazz/pop score with some of the most beloved songs in musical theatre history, including “On this Night of a Thousand Stars,” “Another Suitcase in Another Hall” and “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina.”

EVITA is more than a musical masterpiece. The story is amazingly relevant today - a true story about a charismatic personality with no governing experience who rides ambition, opportunity and a wave of populism to political triumph and power.”
-Sam Woodhouse, Director/ Artistic Director


EVITA is presented through special arrangement with R & H Theatricals and Two Knights Rights Limited.  www.rnh.com
