STAGE TUBE: On This Day 9/25- EVITA

September 25
10:45 AM 2012

Welcome to BWW's THIS DAY Series celebrating theatrical birthdays, openings and special events that took place on this day in theatre history!

Today in 1979, Evita opened at the Broadway Theatre, where it ran for 1567 performances. Evita is a musical with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice. It concentrates on the life of Argentine political leader Eva Perón, the second wife of Argentine president Juan Perón. The story follows Evita's early life, rise to power, charity work, and eventual death.
Evita began as a rock opera concept album released in 1976. Its success led to productions in London's West End in 1978, and on Broadway a year later, both of which enjoyed considerable success. A major 1996 film of the musical starred Madonna and Antonio Banderas. In 2006, the musical was revived in London, and on Broadway in 2012. 

In celebration of this day, we bring you 'Buenos Aires' as performed by Patti LuPone. Click below to check it out!
