Tonight's Second Preview of EVITA is Cancelled
The deluge system went off at the Marquis Theatre (1535 Broadway) and clean up is underway. The deluge system is a large reservoir of water stored above the stage which, when released in case of fire, will flood the stage in an attempt to extinguish any flames. There was no fire at the theatre. Preview performances are expected to resume tomorrow, March 14, 2012 at 2pm. For patrons with tickets to tonight’s preview performance, please return to point-of-purchase for refund or exchange.
With a score by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, this first new Broadway production of EVITA is directed by Tony and Olivier Award-winner Michael Grandage and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Rob Ashford. Starring Grammy-winning international pop icon Ricky Martin as Che, Olivier Award-winning Argentinean actress Elena Roger making her Broadway debut as Eva Perón—a role that earned her critical acclaim in the 2006 production in London’s West End—and Tony Award-winner Michael Cerveris as Juan Perón, EVITA will open on April 5, 2012.
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.
