EVITA Cast Set to Perform on GOOD MORNING AMERICA This Thursday
Eva Perón used her beauty and charisma to rise meteorically from the slums of Argentina to the presidential mansion as First Lady. She won international acclaim and adoration from her own people as a champion of the poor, while glamour, power and greed made her the world's first major political celebrity. EVITA tells Eva's passionate and tragic story through Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's most dazzling and beloved score, including "Don't Cry for Me Argentina," "Buenos Aires", "Another Suitcase in Another Hall" and "High Flying Adored," together with "You Must Love Me," the Oscar-winning hit from the film adaptation of EVITA.
The creative team includes Tony Award-winning Scenic and Costume Designer Christopher Oram, Tony Award-winning Lighting Designer Neil Austin, Olivier Award-winning Sound Designer Mick Potter, Wig and Hair Designer Richard Mawbey, Projection Designer Zachary Borovay, and Music Supervisor/Director Kristen Blodgette. Orchestrations are by Andrew Lloyd Webber and David Cullen, and dance arrangements are by David Chase.
The EVITA performance schedule is Monday–Saturday at 8:00PM, with matinee performances on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2:00PM. Beginning April 10, 2012, Tuesday performances will start at 7:00PM. Tickets range from $67-$142, and are on sale now.
