STAGE TUBE: Behind the Scenes - EVITA Tour and Tango Ballet in Denver

January 27
7:51 PM 2014

In this week's episode of "In Focus", host Eden Lane sits down with two of the stars -- Caroline Bowman (Eva) and Sean MacLaughlin (Perón) -- of the EVITA tour, stopping in Denver this week. She also takes viewers behind the scenes for rehearsal of Parasol Arts new Tango Ballet, El Corazon de Tango - The Heart of Tango. Watch the interviews below!

Directed by Tony and Olivier Award-winner Michael Grandage and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Rob Ashford, this is the first new Broadway production of the seven-time Tony Award-winning musical, EVITA, since it debuted on Broadway more than 30 years ago.

Eva Perón used her beauty and charisma to rise meteorically from the slums of Argentina to the presidential mansion as First Lady. Adored by her people as a champion for the poor, she became one of the most powerful women in the world - while her greed, outsized ambition and fragile health made her one of the most tragic. EVITA tells Eva's passionate and unforgettable true story, and features some of theater's most beautiful songs, including "Don't Cry for Me Argentina," "Another Suitcase in Another Hall" and "High Flying, Adored."

The creative team includes: tour director, Seth Sklar-Heyn; tour choreographer, Chris Bailey; 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; music supervisor, Kristen Blodgette; and music director/conductor, William Waldrop. Orchestrations are by Andrew Lloyd Webber and David Cullen, and dance arrangements are by David Chase.
