Producers Hal Luftig and Scott Sanders present the first new production of the seven-time Tony Award-winning Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber musical EVITA, since it debuted on Broadway more than 30 years ago. Last week, as the 2012 Tony Award Nominations were announced, EVITA picked up 3 nominations including Best Revival of a Musical, Best Choreography (Rob Ashford), and Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Musical for Michael Cerveris.
The production stars Grammy-winning international pop icon Ricky Martin as Che, Olivier Award-winning Argentinean actress Elena Roger making her Broadway debut as Eva Peron--a role that earned her critical acclaim in the 2006 production in London's West End--and Tony Award-winner Michael Cerveris. The cast also features Max von Essen as Magaldi and Rachel Potter as the Mistress. Directed by Tony and Olivier Award-winner Michael Grandage and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Rob Ashford, EVITA opened April 5, 2012 at The Marquis Theatre.
